Mary Jane Maquette—Work in Progress
Mary Jane Maquette (unfinished). 2009. Super Sculpey Firm, 3.5" tall.
I suppose it's okay to show this now that we know who One Moment in Time is about. The face is basically done, but I'd still like to do more with the hair before I throw it in the oven. When looking for inspiration, there is none greater than John Romita, Sr., but I also tried to blend the looks of Leighton Meester and Miranda Kerr into the mix. How did I discover them? I started by googling "dimples."
Amazing Spider-Man #639, Cover (detail). 2010.
Gouache on Strathmore Wet Media Board, 11 x 17".
