Thank you. It helped that I worked from a photo for the face. I usualy dont,but I am trying to get used to using referance. my raven turned out with a slightly bigger head than normal. Im not too used to sculpting animals.
Thank you .Yes I noticed that . Its the kato clay , it sets up with a satin shine. The head is also a bit big. I could get a slight irridecent shine on the raven wing.They have powders that look great for that effect. Not rainbow,but could get purple or blue or even mix a few.
Its fun adding the veins It brings life in that way and its not hard to do! The clay is translucent like real skin and lends a soft look. Unlike most sculpt media it doenst neen to be painted very much.
Thanks. This is the first time I applied fingernails of seperate clay. Its agrivating belive me! I wanted to especaily show off the hands and veining since that was the main idea I had to start.Her legs have blue veins too ,but you have to hike up the skirt.
I like being spammed if it's something good! lol but some may not!
See, I REALLY now wished that I had added that fake sacrifices would be okay for my thesis, instead of all historical documented ones, because I would have LOVED to have drawn Morrigan for my Celtic piece.
Mmm ok I guess ill add it. I can allways delete I spose if I get tarred and feathered for it. fake sacrafices? You lost me.what were we talking about? Morrigan might have been a real woman. dont know ,but possibly the tales get embellished over time. I did some research on her ,but I didnt stay real literal in my interpretation. Im starting another celtic lady peice though.
For my thesis, I'm doing symbolic representations of the human sacrifice. I am, however only depicting historically documented cases such as, Aztec, etc.
I'm thinking now that it would have been nice to do ones based on myth and folklore... Just so that I could draw Morrigan and others like her for it. Granted, I have been able to include SOME things, since many of these sacrifices were made in the names of god and myths.
I love Celtic lore, it's really interesting. I have my own celtic knot and astrological totem that I wear from time to time.
I see. History can be a little dry,but there still some good stuff in there. One thing I found facinating was the ice princess. A young sacraficial victim in Tibet I think it was. As a kid I just loved her mummy and the doll and artifacts she had with her were very well preserved. Also Machu Picchu.
Yup I love the knotwork and book of kells. I would like to know more about their faith prechristian and their lores.
Your work is just BREATHTAKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fantastic sculpt, amazing details, perfect scale props... I really don't know what more to say.. I am in awe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
