More to the Story

Covering the neck of the wood finial, I kept wondering if there was more to Amelia’s story than a simple bust? I know she needs a scarf that soars in the wind behind her. But how can I have a pilot without seeing her plane?

I took several days away to digest my thoughts, sculpting Maverick as I let the idea simmer. I was looking at drawings of vintage bi-planes and old bombers for inspiration. Then, an idea began to form. She would hang on the wall, sitting behind the wheel of her legendary plane.

I have no idea how to construct the armature for this or how it will mount to the wall, but above are my conceptual sketches for the next direction on Amelia.
