I’ve started my first figure from the Darksword Kickstarter. It was hard to decide what to work on first. This is Euterpe, one of the Muses. She is playing a flute, but I have not attached the arms yet, so right now it looks a bit odd.
So far I have worked mostly on the base, and the dress. I will do the basic highlight and shade on the skin as well, and then attached the arms. That part seems like it will be a bit tricky to get right, but hopefully it will not be too hard. This is what I have so far:
At first I made her eye look straight forward, but when I held up the flute in from of her face, that looked weird. Now I have her looking down instead. It looks a bit odd, but I am hoping it will look better with the flute attached. I also think I need to move the eyebrows down a bit.
