For those of you who have been following this blog for over a year, you'll recognize this character. Her name is Elrae, and I've been trying to do a sculpt of her since last october\november. Each of these six heads have been created since that time, starting with the earliest in the upper left and the most recent in the bottom right. I really despise #1,3,4, and 5 - and I may have decided to use 2 if she didn't look so ugly from the profile (besides the fact that that head was too large).
This final head used to have the eyes looking down and to the left to give a more 'sultry' sort of expression. It didn't work.
The fact that I've done this head so many times is just a testament to my rampant perfectionism. I've also wanted to do LEDS with this one from the start, and Jim is currently working on getting the circuitry ready to make this sculpt more awesome than many experts thought humanly possible. So now hopefully I'll be able to proceed with and finish the sculpture (and keep my fingers crossed I don't accidentally break off those eyelashes somewhere in the process...oi!)
