Another Baby Balrog by Magweno Another Baby Balrog by Magweno
Another baby balrog. I love making these guys, they're so adorable and fun to sculpt. :aww: This one is a Christmas present for someone. :)

There are NO photoshop effects in this photo other than the text and a bit of contrast. The firey glow is painted on, and I used a bit of nifty lighting to make it come to life :flame:

I do take commissions! Send me an email hello@magweno.com for more info

My art dolls are 100% hand made from scratch, by me. They have a wire armature and soft squishy bodies which means they can be gently repositioned into any pose you can think of. They're great fun and I use the highest quality materials so they feel fantastic and look as realistic as possible.

Thank you for looking :)

I don't make baby balrogs anymore as it's a grey copyright area and I don't want to get in trouble

seems like I'm not the only one liking these guys ^^
I always dreamed of one heating my living room in the midst of winter :3 I bet those are the most ecofriendly heaters. no wood, oil, gas or electricity needed, just a cuddly balrog sitting in the place where usually the chimney would be, keeping you and your tea warm :D and when theres a thief in the night, he will be burned out *muahahahaha* no burglary in a house where a balrog lives ^.^

Yeah he's been very popular. Unfortunately my copyright advisor has told me off for making them and I'm not to make any more :( So there will only ever be two in the whole world!
Ohhhh that would be SO COOL! A cuddly lovely baby balrog keeping everyone nice and warm! haha what a cool idea :D

And I own one of them :3 I'm must make a picture of him sitting on his favorite place when I get a new Cam. I gave him a big bow arround his neck, hes looking uber cute now. Don't know if he likes it, or if hes not just buring it down for my sake ;3
I'm going to sew him a little cussion to sit upon, just not sure about the color... thought of red, but am nut entirely sure if thats the right color. ^^;;

Awww a bow, that sounds adorable haha. Hmm I'd probably go with a charcoal colour with red piping or something but that's just me ^_^

I've got a human doll next! The commissioner wants a doll of himself so that's fun and different. I was sculpting his feet last night, it's the first time I've been a little creeped out by my own work, seeing them baking in the oven just made me feel really uneasy for some reason hahaha.
