With the delicate nature of *Sleetwealth's sculptures, the expression and solitude of Morrigan full I find incredibly captivating. The gaze in her eyes, and the bird in flight really pull together a stunning scene. ( Suggested by rapidograph and Featured by oilsoaked )

Thank you. I really like her persona. I like to sculpt the various godesses and wanted to sculpt Lilith originaly. But I realy love ravens:)

would this be a depiction of the Morrigan from ancient Celtic mythology? it seems like it is becaise of the crow she has with her...
if it is, kudos to you for delving into the very ancient myths!!
the sculpture is very nice, i love it!

Yes it is. I am showing her in her Phantom Queen form. There are also drops of blood on the snow that leads to a fallen warrior and also on the hem of her dress from kneeling by them.

I love making obscurish mythilogical characters and adding as much detail as I can manage.. Especialy ones linked to pagan religions, preraphealites and fairy culture.

Thank you. Im so pleased:D Im actauly new to sewing clothing! I dont even have patterns. I sew parts like the hems and gathers by hand.Then peices are glued right onto the figure overlapping so you dont see ugly rough edges. A friend of mine sent a package with decent silk swatches so I was able to make prettier dresses.
Im am tuning into an antique fabric lustophile. cant afford it now ,but fine fabric seems to make all the diffenrce in the world!

The clay has a nice translucency that makes them look skinlike.
I decided to work more from photos to get better at realism. In teh close up you can see Morrigan even has veins.

Thank you. This one has more realism because she was sculpted with an actaul model. The others are made with no referance and from my mind only.

You can see her close up and also the raven close up to see more detail.
She even had veins and long fingernails.

Yeah shes rocks! Strong beautiful warrioress who also is godess of death and life. I wanted to interpret her a bit softer that usual. You cannot see it in the photo ,but she is following a blood trail in the snow to a fallen warrior.

Just - her arm does look a bit strange to me ;)

Thank you. How so? too short? If you can pinpoint what looks odd Ill keep it in mind next time I sculpt some arms. I admit that the elbow to forearm is a hard area for me to get right. I always end up smooshing the elbow work.

:iconwindestaenzerin:
Windestaenzerin Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well, it's too thin for her, probably.
But the major problem is the elbow. It's too round, the tip you made should be a little more to the left ;) And her wrist looks somehow twisted to me.

Sleetwealth Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
Ok it probably is too thin. I have a bit of trouble with applying clay to the armature wire without it sliping around as I sculpt.. That also could cause the wrist clay to look twisted. I didnt catch that.

I just switched to a new armature method seems to resolve most of that area,but not the elbow. I will probably have to add a hard bone underneath to keep it sharply pointed. Ive been collecting referance of elbows too so that should improve.. Thank you for your help:)
