Oh thanks. I love addign the veins. you dont expect to see them on a small sculpture and they are easy ,but really help the skin look translucent and deep.

Really love this piece. Means a lot to me especially as I feel an odd affinity with ravens.

Wow, this is just a brilliant piece, especially with how life-like it is. I almost was ready to swear she was real, except for the raven. I'll have to check out some more of your work now :)

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.

For not being too used to it, you did a fantastic job. I think most of it is it's just too shiny, almost a plasticy kind of shiney. Ravens tend towards shiny, but more rainbow than white on black.

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.

Even just a purple or blue would look awesome for a raven--the other colors tend not to show up as much, except for perhaps dark greens.

Uhuh. Next time I will do that. Im sure Ill be sculptign more ravens sometime. They are one of my favorite birds. Also barn owls:)

Ravens are very awesome. I think my favourite is a very small raven--wish I could remember the specific name of the species. I have one in a story I write as a companion for the main character.

Barn owls frighten me. They look a bit like their faces have been squished and they are very very angry about it. It doesn't make them any less cool though.

I rather like falcons of nearly any type. I blame a friend for that interest. :P

The white ravens are interesting too. So odd to see that. All birds realy are awesome creatures.

The barn owl actauly has a folk tale about once smashing its face into a wall. I have positive experiances with barn owls so instead of seeming scarry they remind me of old times.

Also as a child I had to take care of a baby hawk for a little while. As babyies they are so sweet. Im sure a wild adult woudl shred you!

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! :P 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.

I'm sorry to ask a technical question, but are the veins embedded or painted? They really do make the naturalism apparent.

Beautiful piece!

No problem. The veins are painted on and covered with thin clay to look under the skin.
