Well I deleted what I had said under the photo about about wanting to cut my hair short and why. I thought maybe that sounded like an invite to shove ones nose in my crack:)
That or people dont realize my head is not my sculpture to crit on contruction.

Hi Nita! You said, "Im still not very good at girl stuff,but Id like to be pretty. It just costs alot of time and money to look good!"

... but from all the pictures I've seen of you here on dA, I think you are truly gorgeous. You have an exotic natural beauty that makeup would only mask.

So for what it's worth, I like to see the real you. :-)

Thanks sweety. This shot is helped out by a little PS magic I must admit.
I guess Ive gotten bored with looking the same so long and I feel tired.
Plus Im also talking about the whole picture not just makeup and my face. the clothes ,fitness,haircolor and style , skin care, hair removal,manicures etc. I could use some TLC. You cant realy tell much from a few headshots.

I never fave this kind of work before Yours is so awesome I just had too! and I've been thinking about sculpting nude women for a long time! more of a relief style though! I just don't have the income to do what I want though!

Thank you .

Its ok I dont have the income to do what I want either. But polymer clay is not exensive and takes very little tools to get started. You can start very small with something if you think you'll enjoy it.

I have done some relif work on beads and also "automata" and "leadwings" is high relif.

Its great sculpting nude women!:)

I can see that you are fantastic at it I might try some fairys since i Like fantasy! but what I really want to do is what I think they call bisque but Im not sure its a build up of burlap and Plaster of paris.

then laquered in a flat finish! its supposed to be light enough to hang on a wall! You sure have a darkside hope you try something just pretty some day! :giggle: your fairys are pretty but they ain't so to say sweet! there a little devilish! imps! but so are real fairys! :giggle: I want to see you when you decide to let your strong feminine side out! you know in every other species the female is really the Strongest one! any I cant say it enough I think your really Great! and I'm a Picky ass artist :giggle:

Im not sure what bisque is. But there are paper clays. Premeire and Ladoll that are light and eary to hang on a wall.

Now that you said that I want to make something even more twisted. So there!:D

I can be girly.. I think

Ha ha! its ok Be whatever you want! I just happen to like Sweet things! :giggle: but I like most kind of art Dark on dA is a little over done! though. but I love your art anyway and thanks for the information!

I used to make signs and have you ever heard of polyethylene foam its what they make signs out of I've always thought about using it for sculpting and thing finish it with lacquer to make it look like plaster or marble! and the stuff you do that's not fairy's I don't know what to call them It looks so Professional and kinda like the Chinese carved jade which are very fine works of art! Hope you are truly successful at it! Good luck! and the stuff I was talking about are large Finished pieces! any where from 36 by 60 or larger Museum sized pieces

I agree ,but in 2d art though every style is overdone. I dont know if anyone can find something not already done too much and if you do you will only end up copied eventualy.

Sculpture and dolls handled like what I do is not very common yet. But alot more people are doing dark dolls in the last 3 years. But if you look at my whole gallery carefully there is alot of variety. its not all dark :)

yes Ive heard of it. that sounds like it will work. Even large works can be made with some lightweight core side. You can use anything. Paper mache, wire frame.

You know I used to think the same way about things being over done But If you havent done it yet then its not over done for you! In other words thats more of an excuse for not doing something that doing it!

So just do it! or you can waist years of your life like i already did! and still do sometimes
besides you cant know your style or find it unless you try things! that are already done! and again untill you do it you don't know how it will turn out! For instance warhol copied things on purpose at first then it became a style because it became his work for what he brought to it! and his personality became part of his art! you'll see the more you do! but if you don't do anything at all because you think that way you'll never develope as an artist I know I did that already! and I still have a very long way to go! Really everythings already been done and over done So like Nike says Just do it! besides art aint like sex you don't always get something out of it! :giggle:

Ah! That sucks. I used to grow my nails out, file them to points and paint them. It was the worst when they were finally the perfect length and one would break after a shower or just bending the wrong way. But stubby finger tips better than crack-head fingers with nails of all lengths and shapes :shrug:

I used to file mine to points too haha. Yup its my own fault for not taking better care of them to begin with. You have to keep them from drying out and protect them. No opening stuff with them. Im lazy at self mantinence.

They grow fast though so no biggie.

Can't say I understand your sentiments and how they relate to the pic/ID, but if you were to cut off all of your hair, then the forehead would be too high, like a mature male, I suppose... Aside, so long as you don't give up , you still have a chance, or so I believe... Anyway, very expressive, in a numb and almost alone sort of way...

I have a high forehead,but too high? Im less concerned with looks and more concerned about spirit.

When I was young I wished I was a boy and I tried to prove to my boys that I was strong as them and I was. Now Im a grown woman and things are complex and emotional. Im fragile, tired of fighting and Id like to be strong like I used to be.

when I was a little kid I thought I was a boy too. I only wanted boy clothes and boy toys. I remember once I saw my cousin pee standing up and I thought that was very strange and I wanted to be like that. I remember that. I know I probably sound weird. But my whole time growing up I thought in my head I should have been a boy. But when I was in high school I realized I wasn't a boy, and I'll never be one. so from there I did a transformation to because a girl. But for about 2 years I had a very large complex about myself looking like a male. it was huge, but i lived through it. hahahaha. now I look like a girl but sometimes it's weird to realize girl stuff sometimes.

I'm sorry if that's was weird or anything, I just wanted to relate.

Naw not weird at all. Untill were older we dont realy have labels. I have peed standing up...it requires technique and practice;) I read somewhere that 1 out of 1,000 people are hermedephrite with internalized organs.. or vanishing twin of the opposite sex.

When I was real little older boys like 12 yr olds were like demigods to me. Strong, routy ,free. I wanted to be a boy but now I guess I like being female most of the time.

My mom never taught me girl stuff. How to put on makeup, shave, menstral stuff, birth control.. nothing! My friend gave me my first bra she was 9! My mom didnt even notice I had boobs. I used to only wear black, grey,khaki or dark blue. Now I wear colors. Im still not very good at girl stuff,but Id like to be pretty. It just costs alot of time and money to look good!

my mom made sure we knew what a period was. when she got her first period she thought she was dying because her mom never told her about it.

but you're right, it does cost a lot to be a pretty female in this media ruined world. fuck them.

Same thing happend to my mom cause her mom was a devout catholic. She laid in the snow and nearly got frostbite cause she thought she was bleeding to death. I knew about it but, I didnt think it ever stopped once you got it. And I just used wadded up tp for it.

The sex talk was "dont do it" period... it will change your innocent self *pats cheek* I had already had sex by that time so, I was like oh uhuh.

Yeah its bothersome. Too many parts to wax, so many steps to get to polished.
Id like to bleach my hair but then, roots touch up and all that. Then I manicured my nails only to have one of the little ...angels break. You basicly have to live for looks to keep it up!

I never had the sex talk. I found out babies came from sex and once I found that out I didn't want to talk to my mom. It was weird. I thought they came from periods. I was about 9 at the time.

I know what you mean also. And it sucks because I am too lazy to the shaving, dying, shit like that when I'm supposed to. I don't even take off my make up at night. My eyelashes are going to break off now. oh well, hahahaha.

Its amazing to me people have kids are so clueless..How can you not talk to your kid about stuff that can get them in deep trouble?! And if you cant be bothered you shouldnt have em.
I went to private christian school and it wasnt till I went to public school that I heard about stuff.

Im lazy and I am clumbsy or fuck it up all the time. I forget to clean off my makeup too when I wear it that is. And when I do put on makeup I end up wiping most of it off cause I feel like I look wrong in it. You dont wanna do bikini waxing if you dont know what your doing. I ended up with alot of bruising and peices of sticky wax stuck all over me. Oh and a couple years ago I tried highlights and I ended up with ugly orange spots in my black hair! Im never gonna be the high matinence sybarite!

Well, the forehead would only seem too high if you lop off all of the hair... (jk... I suspect some dAants watch you not only for your emotively wrenching art but also for the strikingly attractive sculptor as well...)
You are as strong as expressive, and rich full of spirit. Maybe consider diversifying your style a bit? That way you'd be so rich full of spirit that you can't help but be happy sometimes and enjoy simplicity for simplicity's sake. (i know i know, i've tried talkin' happy joy into your sculpting repertoire before to no avail... =p )
