    Beautiful onna bugeisha. Your free hand designs work so well on this sculpt.

    Wonderfull painting, but the groundwork isn’t up to the same very, very high standard if you ask me.

    • Olga Zernina

      Thank you! What would you advise to do with the ground?

  • Olga Zernina

    Thank you very much, Ivan, Steve!

    Fantastic! Gold.


    Fantastic work on the various clothing patterns!  To be honest, I agree with Gino.  The groundwork detracts a bit.

    Hello Olga,
    First of all I want to say again your figure is awesome.  I could practise for 100 years and wouldn’t even be half as good as you are.  But I feel the groundwork should be an extension of the figure to help tell the story and thus of the same quality.  May I suggest that you paint, highlight, shade, etc… it the same way you did your figure.  The get rid of the piece of moss, your figure is so elegant that is deserves better then that.  And the replicate nature : first some grass/ low weeds, then higher weeds (and if you want flowers) and then bushes.  In nature you would not see a bush just pop up out of the ground without some other vegetation.  Only in gardens created by humans.
    I do hope my ramblings are of some use to you, and once again I do LOVE your work.  my comment was and still is only meant as a positive critism.

    Take care and I hope to see more of your work soon.
