rex_lyver Posted July 15, 2005 Share Posted July 15, 2005 I haven't done a skeleton figure in a long time - forgot how fun they are. A wonderfully dynamic sculpt from Tim Prow. Nothing particularly groundbreaking in this piece. It was my first experience using ground pastels to create 'mud/dirt' on the dress-thingy (sorry the technical term escapes me). I used Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolor-Burnt Sienna to create the rusting effects and to create deeper shading on the gold bits. I was pleased with the flesh tone I got on the severed head. I imagined that this was a trophy from a past encounter rather than a fresh kill. I added a VERY little purple ink to VGC Ghost Grey for a base and added multiple glazes of purple ink/flesh to get a rotting flesh tone.
