This is a challenge peice I did for the Artist's Nook in Fort Collins. The body form seemed alarmingly flimsy and I had some lite cracking before I even got started, so I reinforced the form with metal tape before painting and texturing.
I did not have a clear idea of what I was doing. I started with the metal tape and it just developed from there. It looks a bit like a swamp creature if you see it up close. The texture is rather crusty looking, which is not evident from the photos.
I used that medium that looks like cracked glass in my frames. I am loving this stuff!
