Song : Unicorn girl by Sleetwealth Song : Unicorn girl by Sleetwealth
Song is 6& 1/2" to the tips of her crown.

She is excited to be growing her beautiful new horn!
A coming of age for her people. But there are growing pains to endure!
I was amped about the concept of a horn that grows out of a fissure at the pituary gland rather than plunkled on top of the head.
I reasoned as a child a race of unihorned people would be hornless and they would sprout, with headaches and some blood as the skin splits. Slowly throughout adulthood the crown grows shut.

I used a new paint method on this. I painted precure. Pushing the brush into the paint and clay to make a skin texture.

The suggester said: "Not only that the sculpture is beautiful, but the story accompanied with the sculpture helps illustrating the tangible world the artist has created." Song: Unicorn Girl by ~Sleetwealth ( Suggested by Ballistyc and Featured by SRudy )
:icongutterface:
This is another piece by the lovely Sleetwealth that has blown me away, literally! Her sculptures are unique, well crafted and always stunning. This is no exception. The story that goes along with this precious little girl only furthers the impact of the photo. Small details like teeth and bumps on the still growing horn make it well worth the time to look. My only qualm is something small and trivial, sometimes the painting is a bit off on very small parts, such as her chest. But even with that I had to look quite hard to find /anything/ wrong with this beautiful sculpture.

You never cease to amaze me!

In addition to the awesome craftsmanship and acumen brought to bear on the technical challenges of sculpture, there's a bandwidth of emotion on the human spectrum that you're exceptionally articulate with, particularly in that realm between ecstasy and pain, agony and epiphany...
The features have been masterfully coaxed from the material with such a sensuous and organic touch that it's difficult to remember this is polymer and not living tissue; the technique of pushing brush points of pigmentation into the clay prior to curing enables the sculpture to inhabit a subcutaneous dimension as well as the one immediately available to our eyes, and further defines the sense one has of an individual and vital life force.
Created with so much empathy and compassion that viewing it is as much about marveling at the technical accomplishments as it is about submitting to the emotions so powerfully at work here.

This is so...bizzare! but captivating too. I find myself imagining her race, her world. Her eyes appear bruised and it looks so painful but I can imagine her family would be proud of her reaching this milestone, maybe they'd be tell her their own stories from when they grew horns, helping to ease the pain with herbs....there's a whole world in this one image.

A little eerie looking, but still beautiful none the less.
The whole idea of it is quite nice, plus, she's very, VERY pretty~
While it may be weird to say, I find that mouth to be really interesting. For one, it seems like the most life like aspect of the whole thing. Plus...It's just kind of interesting to look at.
A very nice job indeed. A DD is absolutely deserved here.

Thank you. I find the mouths most interesting in my sculpts. and I like to show more life or breathe by opening them.
this one didnt have glass eyes so it changed the focal point.

Well yes. though Im mot the first to think of girls with unicorn horns. I think Im the first to think of it growing out of a skull fissure from the pituary gland as a puberty like rite of passage.
