My version of this bust from Reina Roja. This project was very challenging, and evolved throughout the process. Originally I only knew I wanted to work with dark skin. The. It was going to be almost purplish, and very cold. But I wanted a yellow dress. And nothing was working together. Warmer skin, warmer, and less brightness on the dress, and things finally started to come together. It was one of those where the idea was very strong, but I had to let the model decide what would actually work and what wouldn’t. I think we have all had that experience, where a reference photo(s) stick in your head and you are convinced that is what must be right, only to discover that your mini resin figure has its own plans :)).

Painted with Kimera, scale artist and some reaper MSP
