Although I’m sure this is a lofty aspiration, this artwork by Wenjie Li is easily detail- and complexity goals for my necromancer sculpt. It’s no surprise that I’m a fan of detail spam and gritty, complex character designs covered in embellishments, and this piece is exactly that…without being overwhelmed by it. I’m particularly noting all of the small filigree designs and the way in which the varied jewelry is spread out over the character, leaving some breathing room in single-colored fabrics and blank skin. I suspect many of these were done with alphas or repeating patterns rather than sculpted completely by hand, so my next steps are to find some nice designs on Artstation marketplace that I can incorporate into my pieces.
