Old lady bust or Diane 2050

I have a friend, her name is Diane. Diane loves to go to the car shows with her husband and every time she goes there, she brings me back a shift gear knob to paint (for her lol ). She said that this kit reminds her of her when she is old.

This is my first realistic sculpture, usually I paint anime style kits. It was something new for me and it provided a challenge, so it was a lots of fun to paint.

This kit almost didn't needed any clean up (just because I didn't want to sand off all the wrinkles on her skin). I am currently working on two commission kits (clean up session), so it was a nice change of pace for me.

I used acrylic paint and some pastel shading. Added some facial hair, and a feather, and gem earrings.

My friend nits, so that's why I am using a yarn for the base. I call this "Diane 2050"
