Please read all the rules before starting:
-Timeframe: Till the end of April
-If you want to change it up a bit, then feel free to! Interpret it to your liking, especially if your aim is to add storytelling elements. It is a statue but it's not necessarily made of stone! You can also enhance the statue with your own props and set dressing!
-Try to post one critique for every post that you make. This will make for a better learning environment and help us all grow as artists.
-Try your best and finish as much as you can in the time frame provided.
-Post what you are working on in this thread so that way it's a more centralized place for advice and critique. We don't need to have 1000 disjointed threads littering the forums.
-Try to understand the process of how these materials are being made (e.g. certain finishes on different metals,wood polishing etc)
-Try to understand the history of the object (like how some cracks might have been formed, or damage in general, or erosion)
-Material layering also has its history and way of application!
Some prop-specific terminology to help your research
