Here is the clay figure of a sea witch entitled, "Queen of the Seas". It is based on the Celtic mythological creature, Cecaelia. She carries a harpoon and a conch shell to call her minions and wields powerful magic.

It is constructed entirely out of J-Mac AB225 Tan, Medium Clay, with an armature of steel, aluminum wire. It is 24"x24"x72".

Edit: Thank you so much for the Daily Deviation!

You are very welcome. Do you do smaller resin kits or strictly the full size bronze ?

I don't have a smaller kit. This one wouldn't work well in anything other than metal.

I tried to make them look like they were almost grabbing on to the water, like she was using them for balance the same way we use our legs.

How did you manage to get the thin tentacles on the rock without them breaking :O
Reply
:iconddorrity:
ddorrity Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
There is armature that you can't see.  On the final, the tentacles will be made of solid bronze and will be strong enough to hold up the rest which will be only 1/4 inch thick.

Looks amazing! But her breasts look like implants.

perhaps under water breasts would puff up like that, but I suggest you improve them by making them more real, if it's not too late.

:iconddorrity:
ddorrity Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
That is the way real breasts look under water...I used reference photos. Fat floats as it is lighter than water. Silicone and other types of implants sink because they are denser than water. She is a sea creature and her hair, breasts, and tentacles need to agree with the laws of gravity, buoyancy, and each other to create the illusion that she is floating in the water.

Thank you for the compliment though! I appreciate your critique.
