He's done, but oh the headaches he gave me in the process! I have never ever worked this small before, and I'm not sure I will again. My fingers just don't like working that way.
I am not at all happy with the way his hands and fingers turned out. I eventually had to resort to a "mitten" style of hand to make any indication of fingers at all. Honestly, I don't know how the people who make the eeny teeny stuff that sells on eBay do it. Trade secret I guess...
Fortunately, the figure I am making for myself is on a much larger scale, and also female, with NO horn. (Another detail on the swap piece that gave me FITS!) I hope to get started sculpting on her this afternoon -- I just need to wait for the apoxie armature to get a little harder.
I want to try a different wing method too. I've been collecting wing tutorials from the internet for a long time I think now would be a good time to play with some new ways of doing things.
Now I just need to pack him securely and pop him in the mail and my swap obligations are done until I receive the next installment in my round robin. It feels SO good to be making things again!
