All-American Girl Nicole, Side by ArtyAMG All-American Girl Nicole, Side by ArtyAMG
Gymnast/Dancer Limited Edition: Nicole
Left-Side, Overall View

Nicole is an All-American Girl gymnast who is simply dazzling in her star-spangled leotard. Carefree and joyful, Nicole’s radiant smile and dazzling style will bring joy to the viewer time and time again. She embodies the essence of the original sculpture, titled 'Free Spirit.'

********

WORK DESCRIPTION:

The figure is approximately 1/8-scale. It measures 7-1/2 inches (19 cm) from fingertip to fingertip. The 'magical' ribbon is an integral part of the figure for display. This figure is a uniquely painted version of the 'Free Spirit' sculpt, from which only very limited number of figures will be cast and painted.

I sculpted the original figure, cast it in resin by myself, and painted the resin figure. The preparation and painting work took place from 11/29/08 to 12/7/08. This is the first figure that I finished using an airbrush (I used to hand-brush exclusively).

FIGURE AVAILABILITY:

The figure is no longer available. (1/30/09)

A similar figure can be custom-painted to your color design (hair color, eye color, skin tone, leotard color design, etc.). Please note me if interested.

Had no idea art like this was on this site! I love scale modeling of figures/ garage kits and so on! And this is fabulous!

Thanks sooo much! GKs seem to be still a niche craft at dA. Perhaps we are pioneers! :lol: Would love to see your GK/figure work. :)

I've only done one sculpture so far ... one of Jerry Garcia. When it comes to sculpture and working with polymer clays I just can't quite seem, when it gets down to facial features, to be able to get the sculptures to come out as smooth as I'd like... great for grizzled old men... but not great for female figures... I supposed I should be obliged to photograph Jer just right and put him on here too ;)

I use Aves Apoxie Sculpt. It's a two-part modeling compound that, once mixed, has 1 to 2 hours of work time. Easy to use, water clean up. It has limitations, but it suits the way I work. :)

really lovely figure indeed. at first glance if it wont for her short hair i would have mistaken her for Wonder Woman doing gymnastics lol.

Great work. You are a very skillful crafter.
