Wood Nymph

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Nymphs in greek mythology are beautiful nature spirits, this one happens to be a spirit of the forest.  I tried to work flowers, leaves and other natural elements into her design, mostly in her hair and also the base which has actual leaves incorporated into it.  I really wanted to do something greek inspired at the time because I had been studying a lot of photos of ancient greek sculpture. Super Sculpey painted in acrylic, the base is a wooden plaque with real pressed maple leaves decoupaged on the base. This was actually sculpted in 2005 however the painting was only done recently because I wasn't sure what to do.  Since I had to show her at an art show at the beginning of July I had to make up my mind and get her done.
