I choose to create a peacock in this style and I have to admit I had a great time.
I did notice that I will have to look for better paint brushes to be able to paint better and finer details in the piece. I do not have that type of brushes and I did the best I could to make it.
I started by sculpting the peacock with Creative Paperclay. Typically the alebrijes have pieces in the sculpture that came apart. In my case I made the feathers and the wings detached from the piece.
After I sanded the whole piece I started to paint my bird with some vivid acrylic colors.

I had a difficult time trying to get a good image, sorry !!! ;o)
