White Eagle - Finished!
Again, to improve his facial coloring I went over the entire area with a wash of a rich brown to give a more bronze look instead of a reddish one. I also added more texture to the feathers. To simulate a fur wrap on his braids I carved, painted with Mod-Podge and then sifted on a layer of the material I use for bases with gives a rough but pleasing appearance similar to fur, especially when highlighted with a little dry brushing. I also lightened up the leather of the robe more than normal. The earrings are made from pounded copper, bent into rings, soldered and then inserted once the piece is completely finished.
There are more photos in the gallery and I look forward to your comments.
