Sienna Sure-foot the Druid by ReflectionsByIce Sienna Sure-foot the Druid by ReflectionsByIce
This is my winning entry in FantasyNet's annual 2008 contest in the cleric & subclass category.

Sienna had a complete facial repaint using high quality acrylics & sealers, sculpted elf ears. Her outfit is made out of geniune suede & leather, and her weapons (spear, sling, & dagger) hand crafted (my son made the dagger). Her wooden shield is covered with various colors of leather.

Wonderfull work! I always love the way red and green works together. Also I'm impressed by the ears! May I ask what have you used to sculpt them? Cause I have been dreaming about making a dark elf doll -a drow-, but there are no dark skin heads with ears included (I bought an obitsu pixie head for a fair skinned doll, but they don't do dark ones).
About the outfit, It's lovely, I wan't one to wear myself, lol!

Thank-you!
I used apoxy sculp to do her ears, and then had to paint them to match her skintone... which isn't easy.

A drow would be so cool to make! It's been on my todo list forever... if you do one I'd love to see!

Thanks a lot! I imagine how hard to match the skin tone was! but it looks perfect!
All I have to do is wait to see if I win that black doll or not ^_^ and make a try with my drow lady ^^
I will drop you a note when I have the drow doll done :)

truly beautiful! Did you find yourself having a hard time with sewing that leather? I've sewed leather in the past and it's a pain for me, I can only image sewing for a Barbie

Generally I find leather wonderful to work with, and prefer it over anything else.

But the leather I used on her was very very tough stuff (pig suede)... and I had to pre-poke holes in it with a thumb tack before sewing. Even then my fingers were very sore.

Amazing! I love her costume and the whole appearence of her! I myself has onetime made a druid-sorceresse-girly-thingy OOAK doll. But I'm not good with sewing so I drew the clothes and then payed a friend to sew them. However they are WAY simplier than these, wish I had these instead ^^ I love all the small things , like the neckless, hairband, the shoes and her gloves are lovely. The shield and weapons are also very well done...

Just one thing I wonder, is her hand in reality made to hold something, like she's holding the speer or ist that a photo-manip?

Thank-you!
Creating her was way fun, especially the details and little things.
Her hand was actually shaped to hold that spear. It's easy to do... just hold her hand in just boiled water for oh about 30 to 60 seconds or so, then shape it around a dowel or something and then stick it in cold water to set the same. Here's a tutorial on how to do it [link]
NOTE: You don't have to cut the fingers apart if you don't want/need to.

Have fun!

My god, I can't even imagine how much work you must've put into this (or any other of your dolls for that matter). She's amazing, I think I'm in love :)

Congrats to the win, by the way. It was well deserved :thumbsup:

No wonder you won. The detail is stunning, and everything fits together very well. I doubt I could find a thing wrong with it.

You know, it's an odd coincidence. I just submitting something with red hair/blue eyes also :rofl: :D
