The Making of Steampunk Alora
I'm not going to lie, stuff is rarely planned when it comes to me.
This figure was made on a whim, on a day-off.
Infact I've had a few days off so really wanted to take the time to practice faces a little more, as a result of this I have many little bald heads of all colours and shapes just lying around. All just looking up at me sadly, longing for a body, or at least abit of hair.
So I thought one day I needed to start picking some of the 'better' heads and giving them bodies, after all I need practice with that too!
So as I was creating faces with no particular looks (characters) in mind I just needed to create a theme to work off. One glance on my kitchen top at my cutters, and I knew it would have to be Steampunk!
I had a cake seperator lying around so covered that in brown and added some texture with the cheapest tool around. Tin foil :D
Airbrushed it up abit and made the legs!
Can you see where the name Alora came from?
As I finished her up she looked like a cross between Princess Aurora (with her basque and headband!), and also Alice from Alice in Wonderland with her hair. How cool would Wonderland look all Steam-punky! More practice needed, but I enjoyed making her!!
