Ebony's Dawn...Queen of the Twilight by fetherhd Ebony's Dawn...Queen of the Twilight by fetherhd
With a savage grace…she dances in shadows. An ancient and lethal beauty, she draws the darkness with her…extinguishing the light of the sun. Yet in the darkness she carries all of the colors of a solar wind. We bow and pay homage to her as she watches us through the veil of dreams…. she is Ebony’s Dawn, Queen of the Twilight

YES she is finally finished and even deigned to tell me her name! This lovely little Queen stands 6 inches tall, Her wingspan is seven inches and she is eleven inches from nose to end of tail. She was created using sculpey clay worked over a wire and foil armature. She is painted in many layers of art quality acrylic. Her colors appears to change depending on the light due to the addition of pearl metallic powder to some of her colors. The red especially has a copper metallic look to it in the right light. Her eyes are red swarovsky crystals. Sometimes they appear almost black and sometimes they come to life with a fiery red glow. I swear there are times when you almost expect her to move as she looks as if she could come to life at any minute. This lovely lady took over 80 hours to create. She is SOLD!!!! I DO TAKE COMMISSIONS!!

Oh cool!! Love the colouring on her wings, i can just imagine how beautiful it'd look if she were to flap her wings in flight! Sorry for the late late commenting =P Had a lot of stuff all happening at once in work, personal, AND family (@_@ sheesh! Can't these stuff be more polite about it and come at me one at a time, single file, with a few months (or years) in between, instead of rushing me all at once?), so sorta went into hermit-mode for a few months :P Neways, how are you doing right now? Enjoying your road trip I hope :)

Cool! Glad to hear that you guys have been enjoying your trip! Well things have pretty much settled back to its (not exactly slow) pace for me. Everything worked out well enough in the end. Work, house-moving, weddings, funerals, etc., all went rather smoothly, and now I gotta get a ton of stuff done for Christmas D=  Would LOVE to hear about fethers and poot's crazy adventures soon!

My muses have been VERY quiet the last couple of months but I have felt a stirring of interest in the writing again the last few days. Am hoping that my blocks are lifting.

I've been stuck on a block too. Am hoping to get at least one new chapter of unnamed up by Christmas. And it's not like ideas are not coming to me. They are, but they're all for stuff that happens much later...not for the part that i'm stuck on CURSE YOU!

I am feeling a lot more relaxed and things are stirring. Am at a camp that has little to no service but will be dropping to spend a day on the beach when my back straightened out. Will be able to chat a bit more then and hope to have some creativity to post...got some great pics

I use sculpy clay and then paint it. I would do a tutorial but I am currently traveling without a computer. Will try and get one done this summer when I get home.
