Contest winner - Warden Commander Tribute Pendant by tishaia Contest winner - Warden Commander Tribute Pendant by tishaia
One of the 3 winner of my contest: based on

I nearly facepalmed when I saw this. The idea is so obvious, so clear, HOW DID I MISSED THAT!? It's both really in my style and something I never did before. I adore how there are so few elements to the pendant, but how intricate it actually is. Not to mention how strong message it brings. Really genius idea by :iconjimmax:! The thing I changed (sorry! ^^') is the shape of the pendant. I actually browsed throu many medieval designs and I felt that this shape (really popular in this era) would be more matching author's intent from the description (is it? >.<, I kind of could not ask before :P). I tried to find tear shaper red jewel but I failed, and in the end the blood drop is made of metallic red clay and painted twice with gloss finish to make it stand out more. I sculpted freaking bird three times. Yeah... I wasted whole day on those failed attempts but finally I figured out how to shape it and think it turned out not that bad ^^. I learned something from it and now I think I can try more reliefs like that. Thank you so much for this design! :D
Pendant is made of polymer clay, 65x55x10 mm and painted with matt varnish. I added grey cotton cord with a chinese snake knot - I think it gives it more military like vibe :).

Hey, you may have copied the design, but you still did it by hand. That's pretty awesome :).

Not this one, I prefer to make only one piece of a design, but I do have some ideas for Warden related jewelry, now when I learned how to do this annoying bird XD.

This might well be the pendant 'Warden's Oath' ([link]) from the game you know. The one that is given to the player character after the Joining ritual.
You even have the drop of blood int he design!

This is wonderful. And you did it using polymer clay, something like fimo?
It is astonishing how many details you got into it. :D

This is beyond gorgeous! May I ask how in the world you managed to sculpt the birds? I tried with an even simpler one, and I could for the life of me manage a smaller, more intricate design like that (without either a part managing to snap off, or something go wrong!).

Seriously, your work always astounds me. So incredible.

Thank youuu! Well After TWO failed attempts I started sculpring from the center, and I cut the spare pieces of lay at the very end. this way the whole piece was sticking to the piece of paper and didn't breake. I finished it and smoothed a little after it was already on the blue clay surface. Hope ot helps, and sorry for the late answer *hugs*.
