Gothica (3)

Hi all,
thank you for the feedback and suggestions.

Since my last post I was thinking a lot about adding a shield.
I don't know why, but somehow I have the feeling she needs a shield.

So here's the first try.
That was too big!
So I made it smaller and positioned it lower.
Putting this aside for a moment I finished her right arm by sculpting an armored glove.
Based on feedback from Facebook I decided to make the shield smaller once more.
That's a lot better now, and I think it balances the figure nicely.
I used Milliput to sculpt a leathery and worn finish.
In position.
I think the original sculpt of the shoulder (red) pretty much suggests the position of the arm and thus the position of the shield, does it not?
So here she is :)
Finally I added rivets to the shield and completed the brooch for the coat.
Gothica, the Vampire Warrior Princess :)
I'd like to call her (sculpting) complete. But I'll let her sit a few days before I decide.
In the meantime all the paints and stuff are already packed, so I won't be able to do anything else anyway ;)
The move is still scheduled for the 16th of December.
