Gift of the Naaru by ApostacyArt Gift of the Naaru by ApostacyArt
So it's been a while since I've uploaded anything and this is why. I have been working on this scultpure for far too long!

This is my draenei priest Lourdes, it's a kind of a tribute/farewell piece as I haven't played WoW for quite some time. It's also the first time I've tried a humanoid figure and clothing and man, did I learn a lot! I'm just glad it's done now. Phew.

The outfit is kind of based on the Raiments of the Divine, a robe I was after for ages and never got :( Typical. The staff is just a green one from somewhere in the game. I was going to make Benediction but I figured I had enough on my plate already.

Made from Super Sculpey and Sculpey Firm, with weak areas reinforced with Apoxie Sculpt. Painted with acrylics.

Oh my. The details are immaculate. o_o I'm slowly working my way up to trying to sculpt humanoid figures, but seeing this...... the sheer thought of trying this makes my hands ache.

Hehe it did take quite a while, but still not as tricky as a horse!

So cool that you sculpted your WoW character!! :dance: I have a Draenei Paladin, a Night Elf Hunter, a Night Elf Rogue, and a Human Rogue (not to mention three Horde characters). :D But there's no way I could sculpt any of them as professional looking as yours here!! Bravo!! :clap:

Thanks a lot! Those WoW things are always tricky to make, I've tried a few and always ended up smooshing them :(

Beautiful. Simply perfect. I am filled with envy & it's making my hands itch to get back to art (been too ill for a couple of years).

Very nice!
Do you sand your sculpts a bit? It looks like you do. It always makes a huge difference. And what kind of paint did you use? Looks like it spread rather smoothly.

:iconapostacyart:
ApostacyArt Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2013
I do spend quite a lot of time sanding them, thanks for noticing :) I just use a Daler Rowney set but I'm going to start getting more Deco Art paints as they have more pigment in them, but watering down the paint a little really makes a huge difference, it does take a bit longer to build up a solid finish but it goes on a lot smoother and thinner.

Aww bless you, that is such a lovely thing to say! Maybe I will start doing some tutorials, I'm just not sure what people would like to see or would need help with.

Well, all I know is that I have wanted to make sculptures that lovely for ages, and just don't have a clue HOW. :(

So ANY tutorials you could do would help ... start with the framework, and build from there! :D :w00t: :dance: :sing: :excited: :eager: :D :love: :heart:

Sorry for the late reply!!! Been up to my eyeballs in work-related stuff. :work:

I remember that book ... I borrowed it from a library for a while, but didn't have it long enough to really learn the techniques.

Thanks for reminding me about it -- I should see if I can find it on Amazon. :nod:

Thanks again! :nod: :thanks: :D
