Flame Wip by Sleetwealth Flame Wip by Sleetwealth
This is my present project for the ADO 4 elements challange.
Flame is a 6 &1/2 " polychromed clay relique bust.
My idea when I began was to show how fire destroys, purifies and ash allows new growth , rebirth and is the primary element of change.

There's such intensity in the expression you've evinced from her and the emotions suggested by it-- there's pain in those eyes, but also power; a sleepless, relentless power that's as fierce as it is certain of itself and the damage it's capable of.
The intagliated scarring that parenthesizes the lower half of her face manages to emphasize the beauty of that face's contours, as well as the traces of the fire that danced as it consumed...
The regality suggested by her headpiece is well matched by her bearing, by the heat of her baleful gaze, and the accumulated sense of her full and dangerously combustible attention.
What do you think?

I think for now this is my favourite of your dolls. Not sure because you have so many great works.
Like her best like this!

I also like her best during WIP stages. After curing the polymer darkened so much that I had to paint her. So I lost the very soft translucent skin.
I think she is the most shocking of my peices. I realy surprised myself with her.

I already wondered why you painted her! She is quite amazing at this stage. I also love her head piece.
The white bandage that is immediately recognized as a nuns cap with the aureole like a crown.She shows quiet anger in her expression ...and the self mutilation.....yeah this one really grabs me.
I don't think she needed the extras you added later. She is just perfect like this.

Its something I might try again someday to improve on. The orange hair I agree detracts from the clean form ,but it was for the ADO challange of the element fire. So I fealt she needed some firelike color. And the second character Ash well he could have been a seperate doll unto himself.
Im starting to realy like wrapped up heads :)

So far I have done it with Leadwings and Flame. They are more resembling bandages on Flame. They make her a empathetic figure but, also lend her pious purity.

I love your imagination. I wish I could crawl in your head for a bit. There seems to be sooo many dark corners and I love to be scared.
