My very first Lucas Pina sculpt. Who knows why it took me so long. All I can say is WOW I had fun with this.

Big experiment and first semi-serious work coming out of the big learning period with Marko and Aleks from Craftworld. I cannot thank them enough for the wisdom and artistic creativity they have helped me to understand. Keen to get into the next project right away.

I personally feel like this is probably one of my best work to date and it's kind of a shock since I really don't have much experience painting monsters and despite all of that I still feel there is a huge room for improvement. Felt good going down, took some risks and they all seemed to work out. One of those pieces that just falls into place for almost the entire project we can all only wish for it to go this well every time we paint. I really hope you agree :)

    I have to add to my previous comment: This is not only one of, if not the best works you have done but as a few others have said, it’s also one of the best figure paintings I’ve seen.

  • Mario Hernando (Netsuke).

    Amazing work, love colors an atmosphere.

  • Natalia Oracz

    Very nice. I really like this color scheme, it fits this bust like a glove with it’s warmth. I think that the blue shine could be more visible in between the fingers, but it’s fine anyway :D Good job!

    • DavidColwellPLUS

      Now that you mention this I feel like you’re right and I want to see a bit of the glow on the inside of his fingers.  I think that may have been a result of not being able to reach there with the brush to paint because it was assembled we learn.  Thank you for the good feedback :)

  • Matthieu Roueche - "Blabla"PLUS

    What a great interpretation…miam! :)

  • TimPLUS
