I have been taking a ceramics class at my school, and I had some leftover clay and leftover time from my last project, so I decided to make something cool. It didn't take long to decide what to make; I took out some tools and started molding the shape of a Gamecube controller. After about 3 class periods, I finished sculpting, firing, and painting my controller, and while it is still a noticeably rushed job, I am pretty proud of it. :) Unfortunately, it is just a decoration at this point; I'm not skilled enough to hollow it out, and make it into a real controller, but it is something totally unique that I can add to my Gamecube collection.
So, without further ado, I give you my epic creation!
After painting and sanding/smoothing:
Now that I look at it, the left grip is quite deformed. I wasn't able to fit on the Gamecube logo [let's just call it a 3rd-party controller ;)], or the convex formations around the Control Stick or face buttons. Oh, well. I didn't have all the time in the world, but I am happy with what I got in the end.
This is Lisalover1, liberating the world from bland, plastic Dualshock controllers.
