Masterclass Release - Toto Bust
Italian model company Masterclass, has just officially released a bust I made for them earlier this year. It is a portrait piece of Italian comedic actor Antonio de Curtis or "Toto". His face was particularly challenging to recreate as the actor had his face disfigured in an auto accident as a teenager. I think my attempt at the likeness is fair. I include here a few pics of the master and also the boxart picture painted by Italian artist, Elio Stella. I hope to get the time to paint one for myself at some point. Thanks for looking.
I'll have a few more commercial releases coming up soon. In fact, I shipped another piece to a manufacturer yesterday that will see daylight on the market perhaps late summer.
