    It is the awesome sculpt from Maurizio Bruno. I really like it from the first time i saw it.
    But the painting was not easy at all. Repainted the face six time's before i was satisfied. I really wanted to do earthcolors. Well, i think i didn't make it to easy for myself with these colors.
    I hope you like it, and as always shoot your comments. Its the only way to learn........
    And no, there are no better pictures. It is all i can do with my camera.

    Beautifully done, Marc! This is definitely one of your best, if not THE best! I agree with Guy about the earth tones, but I also like the highlights on the clothing and little touchs. Lots of appeal and warmth! You should do well in competition with this one!

    All the ...uh, best,

    Hi Marc !
    GOOD JOB on the figure :D:D !!!!! I especially like the well backdrop. Is it a commercial product ? If so, from which company ? All in all, a COMMENDABLE effort. Cheers !

    Maurizio,
    Thank you so very much. It is always a pleasure when the sculpter can give his comments on his creation.
    About the wooden shoes (in holland it are "klompen"). My grandfather made this in his homefactory in the early 19's. He told me when the "klompen" didn't fit the person, they put straw in it. Then they fit well, and it was soft to have them on.
