Here's my big entry for this comp. Been waiting a long time for a female comp to come my way;) She took me the full 2 months to make. I could only sculpt alittle a day to prevent fingerprints on my sculpt. It was definetly worth taking my time on. I am defintly happy how she came out. I used an electra and sculpted her suit and took acesories from a Dawn figure to add. I sculpted her hair and painted all the detail on her. I painted her fae ompletly before I added the hair so if you look on the side of her face, you can see both eyes painted. I added the teardrops to her face. I worked all my magic into her. Let me know what you all think. I repainted the base and weapons to give it a more detail realistic look.

WOW!!! Simply WOW. The detail on her is amazing and the paint job just as great. Anybody can see you put a lot of effort into her. Amazing.

Congratulations! You clearly spent a lot of time and effort on this custom of Dawn! I love this character! JML is a great artist of the female form, but even better than that (in my opinion) is his talent for telling a compelling story. I particularly like his work on Angry Christ Comics (the original Cry for Dawn stuff) and his first full-length feature with Dawn - "Lucifer's Halo". It is a pity that JML's work is so slow and infrequent, but I guess we take what we can get. Anyways, I love your Dawn custom, I've often thought about carving up Todd McFarlane's Dawn figure and doing something with it, I particularly like her best in her red armour, maybe I'll try that some day.

Thank you everyone for the comments and the votes! I was really trying to win and when I saw all the great customs, I started to get nervous lol. She was so much fun to make but very slow and time consuming, but so worth it lol. I really appreciate all the comments!
18thstreet-Geppetto, thank you on the compliment. To tell you the truth, that breast plate was bothering me as well. I cut it but alittle to much on one side, then I thought about cutting the rest to match but then it wouldn't cover the area it was suppose too, so I added alittle apoxy to the side to try to fix it without putting to much where I needed the articulation. That is the main reason I cut it. It's actually a piece of plastic. Then I wanted to take it completely off and just scullpt and paint like the bottom half, but it is supposed to be a see through plate and it would be to graphic for the comp lol. So I stuck with it, but next time I think I won't use the plate at all. I appreciate you looking at me like a big girl and look at my work with high standards.
Thanks everyone again on the comments and votes! This comp was full of awesome customs!
