When I first saw this, I thought it was a paper mache. It reminds me of when I used to make stuff like that in art class. In fact, looking back, art class was probably my favorite out of all of those. This is of course a clay piece and it's nice for an early work of yours. It makes me remember of how I used to make those things too. It does look a tad dusty though.
It's still nice to see how far you have come. While not great, this is still good in its own right. I love the job you did with the colors, whether that was intentional or not. I like how the back is green. Hey, everything in a picture counts, even a photograph.
