I really like your intentions behind the bust. The story of the gift is inspiring and brings this warmth and happiness to the whole piece. I think the standout is the free hand on the shield. Also it makes the figure quite unique. Lovely paint job!
Thanks! The freehand was fun, and certainly non-standard for the figure.
he will adore it , gold
I think so! He’s the one who got me started painting as a kid - he’ll get it displayed well :)
Très beau travail, Or
Glad you enjoy it :)
A really thoughtful gift :)
Painting as gifts is quite satisfying. I think he’ll like it :D
