40cm / 15.7 inch from the top of her halo to the bottom of her base
Her head is made from a museum quality artificial Short Eared Owl skull from BoneClones, realistic glass eyes, individual lashes, and English viscose braided hair with a metal halo. She wears a beautiful lace mantilla on her head (sewed to her hair). Her body is sculpted from Creative paper clay over a messing rod and tube skeleton covered with Aves apoxie for durability. She is wearing lace underwear and stockings underneath her dupioni silk pleated dress with double sleeves. In her hands she is holding a faux pearl Paternoster rosary. The wooden base is painted with high quality acrylics and then decorated with mosaic tiles, faux pearls, and golden trimmings.
Tia Dalma, what she would look like if she was a horse... thing. it is in color pencil, so that is whats up with the cruddy quality, oh an my scanner is broken so this is a photo... more reason for crappie-ness.
If you dont know who Tia Dalma is you need help. No lol, she is aka Calypso in Pirates Of the Caribbean Dead Mans Chest and At Worlds End, the awesome lady who gives Jack a jar of dirt, Davy Jones .ex lover person. Ya if thats not enough description for you to remember her by then your really really need to watch the PotC movies again.

[Full View!] Revised character sheet for my character Wolf Nymph! I made some very minor changes, so I really wanted to make this so I would have as thorough a reference sheet as possible. I included some angles that might be confusing to anyone drawing her, like her butt and where her wings attach, as well as the written description ON the image so it's all in one place. =3 I can also go back and edit it any way I want, without having to go back and draw everything over again. It's not totally perfect, like some crooked things... But I don't mind, I like it overall!
About the face in the middle of the three, the beast bird looking one... gave me permission forever ago to use the facial structure of her chimera Zherion: [link] I thought I should credit her for the original idea, which I though was pretty awesome. =3
[edit 3/2/07] I changed some stuff ever so slightely. altered her facial markings and kinda tweaked the axe shape on her back. Decided not to include her blue pendant to encourage anyone who might draw her to use other clothes or decorations. =3 Also made the text smaller and and images larger and easier to see. Nothing big enough to reupload this completely.
[edit 10/9/07] Tweaked some things again, darkening up feather, tail and ear tips, as well as adding in more yellow/tan on her torso and neck. And she has pupils!!!
[edit 2/25/08] More tweaking! I streamlined where the rusty/brown and yellow/tan areas flow, making her markings flow a lot better, especially on her face. It just didn't look like her body and face markings matched until now. Also changed the sheet configuration a little so it's more readable, and added in my pelt badge as an extra reference. This edit not so minor that I don't want people so see, but still pretty small. The ever changing Wolf Nymph!
