'Why do birds suddenly appear?' Sculpted Model

I have been wanting to try turning my flat graphics into sculpture for some time now. I started off with a few easy characters to see what the process involved as I hadn't even touched clay since I was at school. They turned out better than I thought so I moved onto small sets.
This one stands about 28cm high and is made from a mixture of modelling clays and then hand painted and cased in an old clock dome. I really enjoyed the process involved in this type of modelling and I plan on exploring this medium way more and see what I can do.
If you are interested in this piece it is currently on display and for sale at Strychnin Gallery in Berlin, Germany.
