APG Bust Painted...Finally

After a long delay, I have finally finished painting the George Washington bust I sculpted for The Artist Preservation Group. Castings are available to order directly from the APG and I understand that there may be some castings available at the upcoming Chicago Show.

Painted in acrylics and some oils for special effects.

Thanks for looking!

More Progress....

Here are some more shots of the bust. It's coming along more quickly now. Still working the face from time to time. The fur texture was an experiment to get some kind of texture, but still retain a soft look. I hope it works. I stippled the wet putty with an old toothbrush then lightly softened it with a wet paintbrush.
I hope you like it.

Thanks for looking!

Napoleon Update 9/6

More work happening on Napoleon. I have some of the big forms for the ermine/fur and velvet robe going in and have started the detailing on the sleeve. Still playing with the face from time to time especially the mouth area which I don't think is quite right yet. Thanks for looking and come back soon for more updates!


Something Different....

Here is a new work in progress for completion next month. It is comic heroine "Elektra" and is around 250mm scale. Still working out the facial symmetry issues and starting to work on the musculature and body forms. It's nice to do a subject like this as it is a pretty big departure from my usual historical pieces. I hope this will be the first of many as I consider myself a bit of a "closet fan" of comics and superheroes! Stay tuned for more updates on this fun and challenging sculpt!
