Baby Groot by Nero749 (my username on DA)
I’ve added some extra photos on here because I really like how he turned out!
I’m just going to add what I said on DA:
I started to make this right after I saw the movie, he’s just too cute! Which I suppose a lot of people felt because there are a lot of baby Groots out there made by fans, haha! But look at his little face, who wouldn’t want a baby Groot around the house! I don’t sculpt a lot but I really wanted a tiny Groot (He’s not that tiny actually, he’s about 23 cm including the pot.)
Short production report:
I sculpted baby Groot from a pretty cheap clay and then made a mould so I could make a resin version (the clay one was too fragile). I then just painted it with acrylic paint and got the pot from a local store. The sand isn’t really sand it’s Styrofoam covered in a small layer of some decorative stuff that looked convincing. I haven’t glued baby Groot in the pot so I can always get him a bigger one if he outgrows this one.
