Leachie Chibi by CatharsisJB Leachie Chibi by CatharsisJB
A larger (and generally meaner) cousin to the crestie, the leachie (Rhacodactylus leachianus) doesn't hold as much appeal for me as its eyelashed neighbors. However, there is something cute about the jowly face and snowflake-like markings.

A leachie pic from crestedgecko.com if you were interested in seeing what they look like in real life! I painted this one after a darker animal, but you get the idea :)

Polymer clay, baked, painted, glazed.

I'm a leach owner, and I LOVE this! I adore my little guy's wrinkles and how it looks like he is smiling. You captured their little smiles so well :)

Yus! ^___^ And he said he'd leave them out on his table and make sure to point people my way.

They look like pickles, in my opinion...

Your chibi-fied version looks far less pickle-like and far cuter.

Your chibi one looks cute! Though for me, I would not want that gecko. Looks fat-ish and wrinkly, but I know thats for camouflage so he looks like a branch, not a gecko.
