*deep breath* I'm trying something completely new here. Actually, not so much one thing as several things. Okay, what I'm really doing is hurling myself at full speed off the cliffs of insanity. Let me explain. Ever since the 2014 Year of the Giants contest was announced, I've had it in my head to paint Yephima as though her exposed skin was a starry night sky, and her skirt like a sunset. This idea has grown until now the following is my plan: - Skin: starry night sky, complete with a few galaxies, a comet, and a few planets. - Hair: Clouds, perhaps as a partly cloudy sky? - Skirt: Either an actual sunset, or just sunset colors. The former is quite likely beyond my skills, given all the folds in her skirt. - Breastplate: stormy sky with the trailing ivy pattern on her left side painted like lightning - Club: Contemplating painting it to look like a crashing waterfall. Haven't decided on this one yet. - Assorted armor bits: Probably silver and gold metallics. Because I need to have some shiny in there! :) - Crown: Bright sun colors, or possibly mimicking the sunset theme from her skirt to draw the eye to her face - Eyes: I was originally considering starry gems, but I just realized they'd get lost in the other stars. Perhaps as nice turquoise cabochon jewels instead? - Base: Either cut her off her current base and attempt to sculpt a cloud-sorta thing, OR find some fine fluffy stuff that can mimic clouds and glue bits all over the included base to make it look like she's standing in/on clouds. I'm more inclined toward the second option, for reasons I'll explain in my next post. Is most of this slightly (or in most cases, a lot) beyond my current abilities? Yes, yes it is. Am I going to go for it anyways? You betcha. I will most likely end up scaling some of these things back, given that I've only got about a month to do this in. But I at least want the skin and the skirt to end up like I'm envisioning. :) Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
This was a bit of an ambitious project for me. I think it came out reasonably close to what my original plan was. Other than the base, which I have wussed out on for the moment. I may revisit it sometime later when I feel more like sculpting. The Twilight Goddess. No, not that one. Her clothes bring the colors of the twilight sky, while her hair brings the colors of the sun as it moves across the boundary of the horizon. Could be sunset, could be sunrise. Either way, she watches from the clouds to ensure the transition goes smoothly. 77162 Yephima, Female Cloud Giant (WIP)
