Durza by Vertaki Durza by Vertaki
Durza!!! So... the long awaited coming of the dark Shinlai Durza: the Broken One...

(she was just done, or heading into, scratching her mane)

I have a document somewhere that talked about my Lai's history and personality... however... now that I've finally finished her... I can't find it! aaahhh! anyways... here's a brief description till I do.

Durza Is a dark Shinlai, she is a fighter and a rather bitter one at that. Its been several years, and now she wanders alone, mostly keeping to herself as she travels the lands, looking for something that she can't even begin to understand... companionship..? love..? friends..? or fights, pain and battle...? she does not know... all she knows.. is that she will keep wandering aimlessly... until she finds it...

Durza is made out of clay and stands only 2 or maybe 2 and a half inches off the ground. Her mask danglies are 3 stings of thread with seed beads strung on them :)

Shinlai belong to :iconalanaroseheart:
Durza belongs to :iconvertaki:

That's fantastic! I'm amazed at all the tiny detail on this, especially on the head just behind the mask and her foot that's raised up. I would be terrified of breaking it while I was working.

I tried to keep it similar to a tripod in her center of balance :) thanks!
