Title: Amy Winehouse UPDATE! Amy has Wings: New pix Pg 8
Post by: enchantedwhimsies on August 07, 2008 12:16:02 PM
Well, she i getting wings to be a fairy (thus the pointy ears) but the Polymer Clay part is done so I thought I'd share :) I'll add a pic when she has wings too

she's a wee little 6" and those arms are a little thicher than 1/8th" so I just kind of suggested her tats rather than go into miniscule detail :)

Thanks again, i'm glad the likeness is there! I am no portrait artist, more of an illustrator/characature type but she is so distinct and with that hair, body, outfit, tats, etc I thought I'd get something fun :)

She's getting simple dragonfly wings and I'll post a pic with them

Oh...oh, my. Looks just like Amy Winehouse. Scary hair and all. By the way, the hair is my favorite part. I just love her crazy crazy beehives and ratted up hair extensions and dyed-black Dolly Parton wigs.

Post by: enchantedwhimsies on August 07, 2008 06:29:55 PM
That's pretty darn amazing. Approximately how long did it take you to make her? The detail astonishes me.

thanks, i think i put about 7 hrs into her. i didn't keep track and I worked on her over a few weeks which I normally don't do so it's harder to estimate


Title: Re: Amy Winehouse
Post by: enchantedwhimsies on August 07, 2008 06:34:45 PM
Great work!  I'm just curious though... what made you decide to make an Amy Winehouse fairy?

thanks. well, hmm - she is quite an interesting character and she has so many things that are unique about her. that hair, that face, her too-thin frame right now, he dirty ballet flats, the baggy denim shorts and tanks she always wears...all very distinct features. I've been wanting to make her into a fairy for about 6 months I think but only had the time now. Why a fairy and not just an amy-action figure? Because I make fairies :) and i just envisioned her scaled down to 6" and flitting about with dragonfly wings lol


Title: Re: Amy Winehouse
Post by: enchantedwhimsies on August 07, 2008 06:37:49 PM
LOLOL you nailed her!!  (that poor girl....)  you did an incredible job...does she have an armature body?  how do you get the polyclay so smooth?

:) thanks. she has a wire armature with just a bit of foil on her torso, she was going to be too skinny to accomodate much bulking up. As far as the clay being smooth, I don't know really, it goes on pretty smooth and I just use my fingers to shape her. If i have an area that gets a bit funny or shows fingerprints too much I use a little dry flat paintbrush and brush the clay a bit but I don't use any thing else on the clay to smooth it.

thanks you made me laugh! thanks for noticing the ballet flats (they are painted to look dirty too LOL) can you tell the toe is pointed on them ?

i wasn't gonna go there :P considered it....but nahhhh

i am thrilled that she has gotten such a positive response though, and only 1 person asked why i'd make an Amy Winehouse fairy lol

Its so funny that you did AMy Winehouse.  Do you have a thing for drug addict-rockstar fairies???  I ask, because I just looked at your Chakra Fairy (with the balancing scales), and thought she looked like Courtney Love!!!  Don't get me wrong, I am not trying to be snarky, I think your work is AWESOME!!!!  I just couldn't get past the resemblance to Love.   Beautiful work, BTW!!

 Maybe i do! lol That's so funny because i did a fairy that looked (to me) alot like Courtney Love and so I named her Courtney! I don't have the best photos, can you see it here? I didn't see it in the chakra fairy though lol i guess i have a different idea of what is interesting in a person then the norm ? lol
