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 :).
