This piece has got to have the most extensive research behind it compared to my other commissions so far. It has 33 references, including various stances for Baguazhang, Northern Shaolin Kung-Fu, Hung Gar, Tai Chi, as well as snapshots from Avatar (TLoA). I even watched the entire episode of The Blind Bandit, just to look for the best earth kingdom attire for this piece (not that I'm complaining). Big, big project, but I'm glad I could pull this one through.

This head breathes and moves really well. The jaw really does move like it's your own. The silicone nose is extremely squishy and realistic, with a texture that isn't really visible from the pictures alone. Hair needs no styling, as it falls right into place with just a few brushes. Earrings are interchangeable should she ever want to switch them out; there are actually holes in the ears so they don't fall loose.
