Erin O'Malley (formerly known as Eiko Yamato)

I hadn't touched a model since I finished Infect but a few days ago I got a very sad news: an old friend I hadn't seen in almost 20 years is gone. I kept staring into nothing and at  one point I decided I needed to do something not to go crazy. So I finished this one. Painting needs concentration and plus this was a very hard model to pin to the base. By the time I was done the sadness was still all there - I think it will be for a while - but at least I wasn't catatonic-looking any longer. I will miss Emilio for the rest of my life, even though I hadn't seen him in so long.

So, meet my little Irish skater... well, she looks Irish to me at least! ^^
Far for perfect, but she has a special place in my heart.
I realize the shaved ice effect on the blades of her skates is a little excessive, but I couldn't resist the idea.
Comments are welcome! ^^


  1. Hola prima... me encanta el toque atlético de la figura, y el holeaje de la faldita...

  2. Gracias primita! ^_________^

  3. She looks amazing :D
    Her eyes and outfit is just perfect.
    I am so happy to see you doing kits again even if it was to just escape the memories.
    Hugs and kisses

  4. Thank you Annya! You are always very supportive while I work at something so whenever I finish one model it's always a little thanks to you too!
    I never really stopped making kits, I just took a little vacation to make jewelry. Plus my workshop was so clean that I didn't want to mess it up. But now it's a mess again so I might as well keep going, ahah!
    Hugzz! ^^
