    Sneak Peak at my Teela Bust

    FAN MADE PROJECT

    Hey Guys,

    Getting the shield and sword done is taking a bit longer than I would like so I just wanted to share a few pics of the latest bust!

    Sculpted by the Amazing Mike Cusanelli, but a sculptors hands are nothing without some amazing art direction...THANKS NATE, as always I was blown away with the original art!!!

    Getting started soon on something major for the Powercon Auction!

    Great work. The crystal is a nice idea!

    Now that's just too cool. What size is that thing? the smaller it is the more impressive it gets. One small nit pick, because you or the artist behind it has impressive chops and can take constructive critism- the lips, while they are fantastic look too big for Teela any chance the snake staff will be used on this piece cause for me that is her weapon. Anyways painted im sure this thing will be incredible either way great stuff.

    Hey,

    Point taken, my point was that if left to us the end result would not look anywhere near as good as it does with Nate's input!!

    It's all about the team.

    No doubt Mike Cusanelli knocked this sculpt out of the park! He and I have a great working relationship, and I would agree with you Zombiehamma, that this would be nothing without his hand and skill.
    And none of this would really be reality were it not for Tweeterhead.

    As to her lip size? @ smanomega... Sorry bro, we'll just have to agree to disagree. I had some specific references in mind for Teela, and it wasn't Filmation.

    That's an awesome color mockup crt622! This is what I hope to hit with my paint up... Hope you don't mind as I adjusted what you had done a little...

    seeing the color mock ups, I'll retract my statement the B+W are miss leading making her lips look too full in color she's like I said previously..... incredible. For the record filmation sucked I've accepted alot of it over the years but I still remember being disapointed with the cartoon as a child I hoped the movie would fix that.......
