First, the tutorial on Nandi's skirt is coming, I promise. I'm still working on it and making steady progress. A couple more days and I should have it up.
In the meantime, I am also working on this. It'll be a quick piece, just to get moving again.
I'm probably going to glaze down the 'texture' colors on the stone. The ground will be brown dirt, the skulls at the base will be bone, and the plaques and decoration on the pillar...not sure. Maybe gold. Maybe I'll try making it weathered bronze.
