WIPs for the weekend

Here are some WIPs I've been working on over the weekend. Obviously I did not start them all this weekend. I'm way too slow for that. Sorry for the blurry pictures, they were just quick snaps.

First is a little girl trudging through snow. Super Sculpey and Sculpey on wood. She's still in the early painting phase. I like her because she's kind of a mystery to me. I usually have a reference(like Little Red Riding Hood) or some back story (like Delia) before I'm working on a piece but I don't know what she's doing out in the snow. Where are her shoes? Is she going somewhere? Looking for something? Running from something? I have no idea and she refuses to tell me.

Early sculpting phase of Snow White. Trying a more realistic look for her, we'll see how it turns out. She is Sculpey over a wire framework.

Ahh the Frog Princess, this project has turned into a long term relationship due to setbacks and major frustration but as I'm happy with how she's turning out. Her hair needs a lot more work I think and of course she is missing her Frog Prince. Sigh it will probably take me another few months to finish her at the rate I've been going.
