Valkyrie 1 by wingdthing Valkyrie 1 by wingdthing
One of a kind polymer clay fantasy sculpture by Nicole West.
New piece for the week of April 14 2009.

Felt like doing something different from my usual. Got keep mixing things up so they don't get stale. ;)
Enjoy!

Absolutely love this. So many talented people on DA I lose all track of time! LOL! I really enjoyed browsing your gallery. Do you ever do commission work, or only as the muse directs?

This is beautiful, how much for something like this? Or perhaps an art trade?

Thank you so much. This piece sold for around a thousand. Your art is fantastic, but I'm not a huge fan of that style. I really do appreciate the thought!

Audacious, intricate, lithe and lively; fantastically realized from head to winged heal...

You know, if I didn't sculpt these figures for a living I think I'd be designing shoes. They are an obsession for me. :love:

Thank you my dear! I wish I could keep her in my office to watch over me and inspire, but alas, in the mail she must go.

Well Luis Royo was an influence on this piece. I adore his art! A fine compliment indeed. :hug:

Wow. Valkyrie, indeed. I just listened to I think it was the first opera in the Ring Cycle, so it's funny timing that you should post this now.
