This is an outstanding sculpt. Nice detail, full of character and it gave me a place to stretch my skills. Overall I’m pleased with the black and the green energy effect. The freehand on the skirt is based on spending too much time looking at “Oriental Lotus Pattern Dress” on Google Images.
I have the colors blocked in. Her face and arms are finished. Next I’ll start to detail, shade and highlight. Plans are for OSL from the green and a pattern of purple lotuses on the white dress.
I am anxious to try her in the condition-based strats. What are your thoughts on her?
You’d never know it, but Craig and I both paint, he’s just significantly better than I am!

- Finish the black hair and hooves
- Add gore
- Add grass to the base and moss to the stone

I’ve never been a fan of this sculpt but after spending some hours painting it, it grew on me. I am happy with the skin – flesh but rotting. I tried to spend extra time on the wings using pictures of actual brown eagles as a reference. Overall I’m pleased but would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
On Saturday September 23rd I am streaming a paint lesson for charity. Blue Ox Games in Greenville, NC USA will stream me painting and giving tips on their Twitch feed. Please come by and join me watching paint dry. I’ll be working on my Iron Painter entry with a focus on painting flesh and clothing.
Please also take a moment to donate to the great cause Extra Life while you learn.
