Yay for me! After what truly seems like an eternity, I have completed my first piece for 2010.
This is 'Sienna' and she is a very sulky faerie girl. Having three daughters (delightful though they are) I had much to draw on for this piece. I love the idea of faeries in moods other than the commonly depicted cheerfulness....and let's face it, anyone who knows anything at all about faeries knows that they are unpredictable, vengeful and contrary little blighters!
I really tried to get not only the facial expression to convey Siennas mood, but also her body language.....she is definitely not in the mood to compromise!
I had lots of fun constructing Siennas costume, most of it being comprised of leather and felt - two of my favorite materials to work with. She stands 40cms tall to the tip of her pig-skin cap.
Even though I have my life-size goblin built, I have started sculpting another piece.....suffice to say that it involves a snail.....truly I have the attention span of a flea!
Till next time.
ps. Sienna is for sale on my website. Not all Faeries are Beautiful.
