Yesterday I posted pics of a topper I am making for my neices wedding. You were all very kind but agreed the bride needed "something"...so I decided to try and re-do her.
I was surprised that I was able to take her apart and re-work her. Using a hair dryer to warm/soften the areas, I removed her large nose, worked a little on the face and replaced it with a smaller one. I also was lucky enough to be able to remove the entire arm/shouldes/neck area without damaging the dress and head. I compleately re-made the arms making them much slimmer and worked on the shoulder/neck area. I even gave her painted nails this time.
Since this was my first attempt at figure modelling I really did learn a lot, I also learned a lot in working on the repairs. I am much happied with how it looks today, but I would still like your thoughts on it.
Thank you all for your very kind and supportive encouragment...you guys are great!
Here's the before's and after's.
P.S. sorry the pics are out of order but hopefully you can see the differences!! LOL
I think it looks awesome!! It's amazing how much a shorter neck and thinner arms changed her whole look huh?? I think with the longer neck and arms it almost gave her the appearance of being a dwarf (little person for those that find dwarf offensive)
She looks beautiful and I love the way you have her gently touching the dragon, so sweet!
She looks lovely. You did a really nice job. For future reference I can't recommend the book "Friends and Family in Polymer Clay" enough! It is the BEST book for modeling people IMHO. Very clear concise directions and body shape ratios, etc.
She looks AWESOME!! You did a wonderful job on the rework!
I'm so glad it worked out making adjustments rather than redoing her completely. She looks terrific. Well Done!!!
Well I think she looked great for a first attempt but your rework of her is brill, well dont you the nose, neck and arms def made a differnce, you must be very proud
AWESOME JOB, Glad u didnt have to take the dress apart !!
great job - love her nose job too!
I LOVE THE DRAGON TOO. Great great job. Be very proud of your self.
WOW she looks so much better after her facelift (but she was excellent the first time around). You did a great job
looks awesome! I had to do a bride and groom with a dragon and omg your's is sooooo good.I was ready to kill someone after lol
(((thanks all))) it really is surprising the difference it makes with the neck/arms and nose. I emailed the photos to the brides mom and she loves them....PHEW!! Now just wait for the new date to bake the cake!
Thanks again everyone...very much appreciated
she is stunning,
it might be the pic but she looks a little "blind" if you havent I would suggest doing a small black pupil
those small few differences really have made a massive change to your bride, she looked great first time, but now she looks amazing! well done
