Some time ago I discovered a series of comic books called " CRUSADES ".A new series of pencil drawn tales of the great crusades during the middle ages . The authors used a mixture of history, fantasy and adventure to create a new world in witch the main characters are living . The cover of one of the albums cought my attention and I used it as an example to create a new figure . As always I used a mixture of milliput and green stuff for sculpting . The arms are made from copper rod . A lot of work got into the jewels. I used about everithing I could fiind . Some are made of plastic tape ( the B . Horan way ) , metal foil , magic sculpt , etc .. In the pictures I took , the knife ( oriental style ) the figure is wearing is made seperately and has to be fixed after painting . The base is made from milliput and some natural rocks . If you want to know more about these albums , check out the authors web site at : http://xaveland.canalblog.com/ you can the original drawings etc ..
