Morrigan full. hard to see but, she is standing in snow. 11" sculpted in polymer clay after Odessa Sawyer. [link]
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. (

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!
Thank you. Im so pleased 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!
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.
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.
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
