Weekly Sculpture: Birdo by ClayPita Weekly Sculpture: Birdo by ClayPita
Name: Birdo
Size: 10,3 cm

This...is propably the weirdest character in the whole Super Mario franchise. It looks like a dinosaur whose parents were siblings, it shoots eggs from it's mouth, the sounds it makes are....special and people aren't even sure if it's male or female. But I for one think that Birdo is a girl, I don't care about what people say, I want to believe that thing is female! Leave me alone with my beliefs! :crying:
New background also! :w00t: I think it looks much better than the old one.

I do not own Weirdo Birdo.

According to the original Super Mario Bros. 2 game manual, Birdo is a boy who believes he is a girl, and would rather be called "Birdetta." Subsequently, Birdo has been established as female in American releases, with the exception of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, in which it's said Birdo is "of indeterminate gender."

Yeah, it's really confusing that you get different information from every game. Still, I'm gonna keep seeing Birdo as female.

Yeah, you really couldn't tell if it wasn't for the bow and the makeup. And even with that there's doubt...

Ich kenn diesen Charakter nicht, und er (bezieht sich auf DER Charakter) sieht auch (Meiner meinung nach) etwas eigenartig aus.

Ich bin mir sicher, das es nicht einfach ist, eine figur originalgetreu nachzubauen, und auch wenn ich diesen Charakter eigenartig finde, hast du gute Arbeit geleistet.

Danke! Diese Figur zu machen war vergleichsweise nicht so schwer, die schwersten sind meistens die mit vielen Details oder 'nem Muster.

You mean because her mouth looks like a cannon?

Lets just agree to disagree here, by the way its been a while since you last gave me another request.

Well, that's just because you said you wouldn't be able to sculpt much while you're in...South America, was it? But of course I'll give you a new task if you want one. If I remember correctly you wanted to try out the Garchomp from my tutorial. Do you feel up for that?

ClayPita 'It looks like a dinosaur whose parents were siblings,'
Birdo 'Don't be ridiculous! My mum is my DAD'S mum!'
ClayPita '....'

You don't watch Dorkly-Bits, do you? I'm not sure if I'd recommend it though...

To me, Yoshi's are female because they can lay eggs. Boshi's would be male though [link]
:D

I think they sorta have both genders because there's no Yoshi that can't lay eggs.

I think I prefer the contrast of the old, darker backgound to be honest.
Great figure though and congrats on keeping the white clay white. I wanted to smash something earlier today while working with some white FIMO.

ClayPita Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2013
I think dark looks better, too, but I prefer using this one because the clay sticks better to a solid surface than to a fabric one like the old background.

What if Birdo was actually a boy and Yoshi a girl?
Reply

ClayPita Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2013
That would be...awkward.

:iconembercoral:
embercoral Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, they both make eggs, so having either one as male would be awkward anyways...
Reply
:iconclaypita:
ClayPita Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2013
True, but then again I've never seen a Yoshi that can't make eggs.

I always thought Yoshi's were female because they could lay eggs, but Boshi would be male :) [link]

There was mention back when she was first made in the booklet that hinted that she was a transvestite. I don't have concrete proof, but my fiance told me that he remembered reading that back years ago when he first got his copy of the game.

Great sculpt either way :D I really love the detail of the ring on her finger.

ClayPita Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2013
Yeah, I know that story, though it doesn't neccessarily prove anything. I mean in the first Metroid game's manual Samus was refered to as a guy!

True, true. I suppose they would have wanted to change it as to not offend anyone since it was a pretty...blatant and yet strange design for the transvestite stereotypes out there.

Yeah, the design is rather.....special.
