WIP 65 mm Goldspice  RTH

  A sculpted "from scratch" piece. It all begins with a wire armature. In the un primer-ed version you can see that it took quite a few different clays to do something so small. And for the sake of easier painting of the face - the bang piece is removable using a "green clay" most commonly used by professionals for 35 mm pieces which is still flexible after curing.
 She is approximately 3 and a half inches tall. The lower right hand corner shows how she would look next to a taller character aka Blacksnake, and shows the painting in progress. For this piece I am using a book on how to paint miniatures for the process. It builds up the colors in watered down layers.
 Blacksnake is a PC from River Twine played by Eregyrn aka Holly H.  I have used a mirrored image of Holly's drawings of her character for an outline and comparison in height for Goldspice.   I filled in the turn around myself for the sculpt just to make it easier for me to "see" in my head.   And with Eregryn's permission I will be posting Blacksnake in my  'sculpt along '  Thread so people can see these little beauties made from scratch.

Note:  As always I took about 300 pictures of this little gal and then my Patrick picked the best ones and made a collage for me.  I am really quite hopeless with the computer.  He does All my trickier stuff.  Meaning: I can barely email with confidence and forget texting or anything else . . .

Oh High Ones! The details and the beauty! I can hardly believe how well your style translates into 3D. It looks so beautiful! I can hardly wait to see the next steps!

I am in awe of anyone that can manage to do any sort of 3D art, and this is done so well. You always put so much careful and long thought into each of your pieces, even down to the skeletal details no one will ever see. And to even consider what the skeleton would look like in each case! You should offer do to EQfanart members' characters; I'm sure you'd get excellent business!

@AMBERFOX    I am sure I would not know just how to charge for them.  Who could afford to pay for over one hundred and fifty hours of my time?  And doing Everybody would be the same commitment as  the Crazy Horse Memorial - meaning it would take a  FUN lifetime.  (well)    Hey - bring on the money.  One a month could support me in my old age. Hey?
