Woohoo! 40,000 hits. Never woulda thunk you guys would like my sculps so much!
Nothing special to commemorate except I have my new sculpt  "Lambsy" up.
I started an Etsy account where I will try to sell more affordable(under $100) small simple sculpts. My random studies,busts,unfinishes works or maybe a bead or two. Will have to see how well it goes.
Its not set up for selling yet,but Ill be sure to put links here when I have anything available.

Nita, I wish you good luck with your Etsy Shop.
Oh! I love Undine!! She reminds me to the Rackham's illustrations. I love your unique style!

Thank you. I hope I can get some more things up there! I looked at Rackhams illustrations of Undine in a book I have. He is great! So many of his illustrations inspire me.

I've been here for almost four years now and haven't had that kind of support or response... you exceeded the activity on my DA site in less than a year! I'm both jealous of and happy for you!

Its weird huh? before I came here I feel as though I was nearly invisible except to some OOAK artists on ebay. Im not even a link on most dollmakers sites. I think it helps that I post alot of nude females ya know;)

Well, if there's one thing that seems to thrive on DA it's the female nude category. I think my works utter lack of any kind of darkness or sexual theme engenders little or no interest for most folks here on DA, but there's the quality of your work to be considered in no small way as well!

Defiantly. Darkness I dont think you need though goth is pretty en vouge. My most faved peices Dryad Lianna and Lady blue are more classical and not sexual or dark. Maybe the realism is more popular. I dont know.

Perhaps so...I never know how to respond though to the classification of "realism" when one is also speaking of the fantastic. But then we live in an age of hyper-production value and highly polished CG fantasy images and the like and I think my more "whimsical" vision is seen as unappealing, rough, and unreal and thus is not taken as seriously. I do what I do I guess...:shrug: it either has an audience or it doesn't. It wouldn't be the first time that I would be seen as out of step with the rest of the world and what is popular.

Well I think alot of people want what cant physicly exist to appear as belivable as possible.. An illusion that fools the eye..not all of them... theres plenty of people who love whymsical. Realism is impressive..whymsical is charming and imaginative.

My work is rough and Ive been told looks unfinished or rushed.. defiantly niether. That has probably been a handicapp. I may be admired here in clicks ,but that doesnt add up to great sales.

Oh you like beads? These are more like pendant types,but they could be hung hanging down or sideways. I have some that are just color and without figures sculpted on top. I love to make faux jade and other faux materials.
