lovely .... gold :)
Thank you very much for your comment :)
Love the skin and the textures. An awesome first bust. Not a gold from my side as I barely give golds, but a solid silver in my eyes. The little details like the tattoos make it really stand out. I am just not sure about the birds angle in the first picture and gravity. It does not make 100% sense for me. Could also be the sculpt, but I would have changed the sitting position of the bird or the busts angle. Right now it feels like should fall as he is not holding thight with claws to the fisherman. Confusing.
Thank you very much for your feedback and kind words Roman. :D
About the bird (a Cormorant to be precise), you are absolutely correct, it does look very weird and unnatural the way it stands. The feet were sculpted in place on his shoulders, and one of the bird-legs came damaged and I just couldn’t get it to connect in a good way on the feet. I am not used to working with resin and the bird-legs were so thin and fragile it was difficult to pin it in place. And I had to sculpt one of the legs to repair the damage done, but in the process I think I made it a bit too long. When all finished, I saw that it was a weird angle, but I didn’t want to go back in and re-do it haha. Also, I think the angle the plinth-pin goes into the bust just emphasises this more, as Romains original bust is more leaned forward while mine is more leaned backwards.
So that’s the little story behind the gravity-defying bird. xD
Thank you Eamon!
