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.
But this is my contest entry for clubs contest. hopefullbe before the actual judging i will be able to get a better quality pic up. the contest was to draw a fictional movie char as a horse. i was going to do Jack Sparrow... but i figure there will be about 5 of those. (already one)
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.
