TSR's Female Monk

This figure is an archived miniature from the 1983 TSR Official Advanced Dungeons & Dragon Monks, Bards, & Thieves. While an interesting model, I find it amazing how far sculpting has come within the fantasy line.

The model shows a lot of flow which made the robes enjoyable to paint. Again, I used the dark to light painting method whereby the basecoat of the model started at Dark Angels Green. Finished in May 2002.
