3 hours to sculpt, 2.5 hours to paint. Kaia is complete in all her wizardiness. She is to scale for DND play, meaning the base is 1 inch wide. You can tell from the picture with my chubby fingers. You will also notice that I got overzealous and painted an extra dot on her cheek. Whoops.
There are some major weakpoints in the head and arm, which have broken off 3 times since I cooked her. Hopefully the acrylic paint and satin lacquer will add a little to the tensity.
I'm particularly fond of the top down table view, as it looks a lot like the ones in the books.
I have no idea how much I would charge for a custom sculpt, or how the hell I would ship it without it breaking into teensy bits, so please don't ask me at this time. I may experiment with casting and making plaster reproductions in the future, in which case commissions would become a possibility. However, for the cost of materials, time, and the exhorbitant amount for safe shipping, it would not be less than 50$.
Kaia was a challenge because she is a skinny eladrin, I feel like this is the start of something good.
