From ScottB: 28mm Strumpet (6 points)


This is Scott's entry for 'Sarah's Choice', an exotic temptress from the sub-continent.


First, a little background story from Scott:

It's a 28mm scale Reaper 'strumpet'.

I have seen the same figure painted several times in the blog-o-verse... I thought I'd give it a different twist; Plus the fact that the last one [strumpet] I painted up got me in to so much grief from the missus coz I painted her 'blonde'...

So I decided if Jack Sparrow had been as far from the Caribbean as Singapore, he could well have stopped off in the Indian subcontinent on the way past, and thus we have the sorry tale of Prashanthi Maduralawa, who fled from the arranged marriage that was lined up for her, and fell in love and off to sea with her bonnie sailor boy... but her sad tale continues as her beau loses his life in ship to ship action fighting off a pirate vessel, who take the crew prisoner, and poor Prashanthi ends up in Tortuga, having to resort to the oldest profession to make ends meet...

So a brown skinned beauty, with very OTT make up, but it had to be this gaudy to stand out against the dark skin, and to attract her clientele!

Excellent work, Scott. I'm giving you 5 for the lass and an extra 1 for her heart-rending story (it made me get all misty).
