    This is Poison Ivy of DC comics fame. It is based on artwork by Stanley Lau. The piece is actually a pewter key-ring made by Monogram International, but I'm not sure if it's cast in hot metal or die stamped. I found it in a comic/gaming store. The piece is 2.5 inches tall and is well detailed on the front. It has quite a bit depth to it (waaaay more than a flat) and is hollowed out on the back side. Since the the details tend to peter out along the sides, the primary viewing angle is dead front. Floquil Model Railroad Gray Primer (brushed on) under Reaper's MS acylic paints. Qs and Cs welcomed.

    One can find inspiration (an materials) in unexpected things... Good work.

    Thanks everyone! I was surprised that it came out as well as it did, since it was never meant to be a paintable figure. A lucky coincidence, I guess.

    @Wayne: It's a converted key fob. I removed the key ring components and filled the resulting hole in her head with putty and re-sculpted the hair. I drilled a hole in the bottom for a brass mounting shaft. The result is a demi-ronde figure; like a thick flat.

    @Gary D: tempting, but paint can only do so much...

    That looks terrific! Skin tones are very well done! (y)

    Thanks! The skin tones are Reaper's Tanned Skin Triad mixed 1:1 with the Rosy Skin Triads opposite number - Tanned Shadow : Rosy Shadow, etc. A bit of Pure White to further lighten and a bit of Burgundy Wine to further darken. This is my go-to mix for female caucasian skin.
