Im working on the first peice for the year another fantasy lady sculpt  but, this time a fantasy portrait. I hope I can get a resemblance. I am using  the lovely Odessa Sawyer of Odessa11stock as my muse.(with permission) Ill post pictures once I get something decent to look at.
  Im debating whether to go pregnant or not.  prego fairy maybe a bit done,but I was thinking of those finger sheaths and a bit of something extra to it too. my usual wierdness.
This is the hard part where you really settle on one thing not the million of ideas that want to pop in. I thought it would be really fun to focus on the blue veins under the skin of a porcelain pale complextion.  I really want to push for more movement ,more expression this year.  Away from so many vunerable ,pouty ladies.. at least I have to make one that is angry and cast iron or one that is happy as a stretch!

I also hope I can do more dressing. Gonna take a stab at it from time to time. Painted leather seemed to realy work out. No raveling and it realy works I think to paint your own cloth for a painterly sketchy look.

can't wait to see it! maybe have her snarling, with a wrath like posture (maybe crouched poised for attack)... or at least that's how i saw it when you brought it up. the pregnant fairy is a little over done at the moment but i'm sure you can make her stand out!

Ah well she is standing now and since Im working from exisiting photos her expression wont be so extreme,but Ill think about it for another peice since I want to do that anyway.
Well with the veins I thought it would be a bit diffenrt at least and perhaps a little more unsettling depending on how obvious the veins are. Maybe not a fairy but a batwinged lady.

bat wings would be a nice touch. you don't see many of them. would you do a size that could hold flight or would you do cutesy though? i prefer the first of the two, and really i think it would fit your unsettling factor.

Thats a good point to consider. Full length wings would be tricky, especialy considering weight and fragility if I sculpt them. But it would have more visual impact and go along with my somewhat realistic style. Cute undersized wings would be a bit tacked on like.

i agree. maybe you could make the wings using wire and fabric. idk... something to mull over.

Possibly. Ive ordered some silk for clothes and butterfly wings. I want to try that,but Im not as good at it as Id like and I worry that if they arent nice they will bring the rest of the work down.

The showing of the veins would certianly be interesting. A joyous lady would be breath of fresh air.

Wouldnt it though. Not many models smiling. Though its tricky to have it look natural , Id like to try it at least once.

Nita I had a figure where it had the veins painted under the skin. I will link you in email later a pic. But I knew the artist and knew how it was done. If anyone can do this really good it would be you! I will email you the technique!
