WIP: Lesza


Recommended Posts

Hey y'all! Continuing to work through my busts (gonna have to buy more!!!), and Lesza is next. I'm super excited about her. She had a few gnarly mold likes that required filing and 'ardcoating.

She's in a few pieces .. lol20200411_002703.thumb.jpg.315871dff0fc42336e641c3149024bc0.jpg

This is about 4 hours of work on her after about 2 hours getting her ready to paint.

I wasn't sure how I wanted to base her last night. I know a lot of people like just plain black plinths, but her arm goes down too long for the 2 inch ones I've been using, and I thought she could tolerate a little more organic feel. This is where I am after about another hour of fiddling with the left arm and finding the right plinth.

Let me know what y'all think! Does the raw wood work? Do you think I should just go with the plain black plinth?

I really love the progress you're making, and the wooden arm looks awesome!

 

It may just be me, but I don't like the off-center placement on the plinth. Would a sloped-front plinth give you enough space for the arms? Something like this?

Thanks! And that's a fair point.. I have a sloped one somewhere, I'll try it out and see if that's better.
