I made this little Bat Cat using metal wire that i twist by hand , clock parts to give it a mechanical look. I also make the glass eyes with iridescent colors to make them look more magical. The sculpture is 4.5 inches in width, 3in depth and 2in height.
Here's a story i wrote about them : The oldest and wisest of gnomes still believe in an ancient legend, It claims that their race was created when the Feywild collided with the plane of Mechanus. The Divine energy from each plane blended and crystallized into gems from which they were born. This is why they have an affinity for creating complex mechanical wonders, but also give life to their creations using enchantment from their fey ancestry. ⠀ ⠀
These little Bat-Cat automatons are just one example of gnomish ingenuity. Gnomes like to make their own mechanical familiar to accompany them on adventures or train them as guardians to protect their treasures. Creating one of these is the first assignments new students must accomplish at the Gnomish Academy of Mechanical Wonders. The first step is to tame a wandering spirit from the enchanted forest of the feywild and bind it to a soul crystal. Each creature has a unique personality and some of them even have magical abilities.
