A Sculptor in the Making

A few months ago, Princess Nagger negotiated for the purchase of a PC game called Spore:

Since it’s really hard to explain exactly what the game entails, I got this from Wikepedia:

Spore allows the player to develop a species from a microscopic organism to its evolution into a complex animal, its emergence as a social, intelligent being, to its mastery of the planet and then finally to its ascension into space, where it interacts with alien species across the galaxy. Throughout the game, the player’s perspective and species change dramatically.”

So basically, you create creatures and develop different planets that these creatures live on, which can get really detailed in its creativity.  It was fun listening to her explain the game, especially when she was describing it and actually using the words “microscopic organism”.

Princess Nagger loves playing this game, and recently created this creature:

Sorry about the image, I couldn’t get a screen shot on her laptop so I took a picture of her screen – a different mode of ‘screen shot’. 

To take the creativity one step further, she decided to create one out of Sculpey, had me bake it, then painted it:

I had barely gotten the pictures taken of the original creation, when she brought this one for me to bake in the oven for her:

This time she used the mesh stuff (since the hubby showed her what it was for and how to use it with Sculpey) so you can see some of it peeking through – which will be covered up when she paints it.  She plans to paint it today, so I’ll be sure to share it in all its colorful glory next week.

I think she’s on the way to being quite the little sculptor, don’t you?

  1. oh very cool…i can see why the allure, looking a bit prehistoric…smiles…and nice job on the sculptures PN…my boys love doing art stuff like that…

  2. What fun! I love creative games:) especially those that lead to a hands on project like this. Go Princess Nagger!

    I just nominated you for the Sunshine Award:) Please come on over to my place for all the fun details.

  3. Your daughter and Spore were made for each other. I suspect we will be seeing more “microscopic organisms” springing from her fertile imagination.

    Those who say that computer games are bad for kids… have obviously never met Princess Nagger!

    Happy WW!

  4. It really amazes me how she can go from the game to the art. My boys get so sucked into the games they forget the outside world.

  5. She’s very talented!! It’s great that she enjoys making thing so much…so many children nowadays have little or no interest in the arts.

  6. I’ve played Spore before – it’s a ton of fun, but my laptop wasn’t up to the graphic intensity of the game, and kept crashing when I played. I probably should download it again…

    So, are her creatures carnivores or herbivores? I was partial to carnivores, myself. 😛

  7. Stopping over from My Turn (For Us). I love finding new blogs, sharing ideas and making new friends! I’m following you via Facebook and Twitter! Congratulations on the Sunshine Award, too! Love the sculpture! Be blessed 🙂

  8. I’m telling you that child is going to be big one day like making up Disney movies and drawing the cartoon characters or fiction characters. What an imagination she has it’s fabulous! She’s definitely going to go far.

  9. She’s really very talented. She’s already famous if you ask me 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving comments even when I was out of town 🙂

  10. Oh she did a great job! I can barely even draw a stick man on a paper!

    Reminds me I bought some sculpty a while back that we need to try out!

  11. I have played the game and the concept behind it is so original, but I have played it as an adult, not as a child! I never thought that a game can be so inspiring to children. These are very nice chef-d’œuvres, if you ask me!

  12. Fun! Your talented in doing it. Not all are having good hands with sculpting and I hope I could try too with some clay at first I guess 😀
