in this case, as far as the design, I received a drawing of the design, mostly for the pose. They then said you can add your touch to the sculpt so I redesigned the armor to be more detailed, with an art nouveau theme. Curvy line and pattens. The sculpt, I did all you see here. I guess they tweaked some stuff in house after I delivered the piece. That happens often either in repair of possible broken piece during shipment or changing some aspect they thought needed improvement. I'm not sure what was actually sculpted by the others mentioned but i sculpted probably 99% of the piece.
Your work is amazing! The way that you make the hair is the most impressive... When I studied sculpture, I had a big dificult to do it... and was a simple hair.. I realy will not know how to do a hair like this.. Congrats!
I have not seen a sculpt of yours that I did not like. I look at your work then look at mine and wonder how exactly I could even begin to achieve half of what you do. I think the answer there is to study the details.
For curiosity's sake, what materials do you sculpt in? Is it a clay or a wax?
Does anyone know what a breastplate is? because that's not it. In it's proper sense, it's meant to COVER the WHOLE torso. not leave a GAP where the HEART is. An arrow could kill her instantly. You might argue that she can parry an arrow. well try that against a couple thousand arrow volley. You might also argue that she could use magic. But mana runs out. and arrows keep coming. Not to mention that the important blood vessels in the thighs are also very vulnerable. And she could easily be sliced in half... Need I say more? (My rant is over. [I've ranted on this before, this is just the first time on Deviant Art.]) The sculpture looks real though, so thumbs up for that.
stunningly gorgeous. every single detail was worth the effort you put into it. from the braids to the textile on the gauntlets to the necklace to everything. this is amazingly well done I can't stop staring at it... did I mention the braids!? wow!
