Hi:

Thank you! I used gray Sculpey Premo. It's great stuff to work with!

Thanks for your answer! I will try to find this material and experiment with it. I once sculped using an epoxi based material, but it was hard to work with (if you have time, give a look: [link].) Congratulations on your work again! Best regards!

I am very impressed by the skin texture! May I ask how that was accomplished?
Reply
:icondavinci41:
DaVinci41 Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012
Thank you for the kind word!

Yes, a Sculpture House rake, a synthetic hair brush and a jar of rubbing alcohol to smooth any surface irregularities. Oh yes, and some six hundred grit sandpaper and a lot of elbow grease!

Take care.

Aren't the legs a bit... short?
Reply
:icondavinci41:
DaVinci41 Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012
No. Her legs are of normal human proportion - however, they are, after all, sunk in a swamp. I think we've been programmed by popular media like anime to expect characters with longer, exagerated gams.
Reply
:iconsimtix:
simtix Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Ah. That's why I didn't think she was proportioned. I didn't realize her legs were in a swamp. xD

However, I have studied anatomy, and most of my characters are short legged (even though they are dragons...)

Anyways. I appreciate you snapping at me for my inquiry. Good day sir.

Hi:

Thank you for your reply.

I wasn't snapping at you (text messages are so often limited in conveying the right tone). You made an observation posed as a question that I answered. You asked if her legs were disproportionately too short. I answered in the negative and gave my reasons why I suspected your perception registered it that way. Nothing more, no overtone of pique, was intended to be conveyed in my message.

Anyway, I hope this clears the air a bit. Thank you again for your message. Take care.
