Here are a few pics of an Angel Warrior or "Avenging Angel" that I am custom sculpting for a lady I met. It stands about 15 inches tall at the tip of the sword.
The shield will be made of clay, but I just used cardboard for a quick mock-up.
I have a few pieces to attach to it (skirt, shoulder armor, etc..) before I begin detailing it.
Let me know what you think, or if you have any suggestions.
