Here she is, the first one, Phew, 2 weeks working on the sculpture night and day, 8 sheets of photos of Yo-Landi. My first foray into realistic people or portraiture, it looks enough like her for me. The piece is large, the head is 60mm high, 2.5 mm swarofskis for eyes, and my trademark BLOOD beads, coming soon, white, Ivory, Black, Coral and maybe metallics if I can get the resin to work in the mold ?
Excellent for award ceremonies and performance, Hey there Ninja come and buy the first !!!
Now does anybody know how I can reach "Die Antwoord", I mean it . . . .. ????

I have started using a clear resin that lets me do metallics, but only simple shape, they look far better than the images, The black beads are truly classy and sinister ! The fist is 50-55 mm high depending on how much wrist you get. I need to make some lady fists, and I cannot wait to see Medusa in metallics !!
Black on Black on Black.
My current favourite, The copper fist !!
Silver Fist !!, but I think I will call it "FIST OF STEEL"
My friend and major Strange-Loop supporter Heather MacVean bought one of these and it inspired me to revisit it. I am using a gun metal blueing compund to make black-blue the chromed rings, and for this one only I made up an ace chain from chromed and blued rings, The Octopus sits in a 90mm diameter ring.

The Aged Silver chain went a weird Orange-Gold Colour, Ace. Getting better plated chain is another job coming up soon.
Turquoise Octopus, the sculpture is 77mm high and 84mm wide.
I am making up a handful of the happy accidents like the coral snake, this one on this great brown burnt looking silver chain, and this blue stained over Ivory Snake on a silver chain, that became great blue colour when I aged it with sulphur.
Hard to photograph Black on Black.
Heather got me to make a Rosary length necklace and I will be doing a lot more of this sort of thing, It looks classy. I made a bunch of these just in black which is very cool , but hard to photograph.
Shorter length Octopus necklace, I like the watery feel of the glass, I am planning to do some kinda waves using these glass beads and then mythical creatures rising out of the water, maybe a Hippocampus, not sure how its gonna work, but it feels like it will be complex.
Experiments with wolf suspension and colours, The 3 chains hanging around the breasts or flat on the chest seems to work well. The wolf is 120mm high by the way, yeah Massive, but not big enough to be a cod piece.

While waiting for the real metal Monkeys I have mocked a few up . . .for photographic purposes . . . I can't wait to wear my Monkey Skeleton Mayor necklace thing , like 12 of them all the way around !!!. . . .
As a direct communication to "Die Antwoord" I have started work on "Yo-Landi as Medusa" ! ! ! ! !
It is an Insane plan . . . but it just might work *&%$£)??
I have never done any kind of portraiture ever, but in the scheme this is not the weakest link . . .
but it seems a way to send a message . . . . . . . . . . .
COME IN "DIE ANTWOORD" . . . WEAR MY CRAZY JEWELLRY . . . . .. . . . . .
Also have ticket to the 5th of July Gig which is very exciting . . . . . . . .
I want to do her doing some hip-hop snarl, but without proper reference this is almost impossible, so I am doing a straight on head first, and then will make more versions, I have just done the face and one ear, and will now refine the face, try gems in the eyes, then make the snakes of her hair holding the chain. I have lots of ideas of things to make, this went to the top of the list because Nova wants a "Snake-Lady" and the way it will attach to the chain is pretty exciting !!!
