    Beautiful paint and crisp sculpting, but suffers from the basic anatomical fault of not having the shoulder raised, in sympathy with the raised arm. Such a shame...(y)

    o_O Up to a point I see yours, but still a nice depiction from the painting. I'm ordering one anyway, and will see what, if any, adjustment is necessary when it's here "in the flesh".

    Many thanks for the comments fellas, much appreciated

    Steve I appreciate your critique as a commercial sculptor which is not normally done within the industry and can fully see where your coming from. If I thought it that bad I would have mentioned it to Antonio and changed it before proceeding to production. The figure has very complex nuances of anatomy which can only be best seen from the sculpt. Thanks again

    Stuart - I seriously doubt my comment will make a scrap of difference to those who intend to purchase the figure, anyway. I come from an industry where critique is given and taken in the spirit it is intended and is part of the job, as it were. I appreciate your response, mine was an opinion given on something which looked uncomfortable to my eye.

    Credit to Stu & Steve for keeping the discourse civil, with critique given constructively and received in the same spirit. Just the way things should be on here. (y)

    To be honest I hadn't even noticed the shoulder thing at first glance, but looking at it again I can see what Steve means. That said, I have seen FAR worse anatomical aberrations slip through under the radar without comment, and I doubt this will be a deal-breaker for most guys who like the subject. As Alan says, it could even be the case that it looks better "in the resin".

    I also think that Antonio Meseguer is one of those sculptors whose work has improved in leaps & bounds since he first started doing pieces for commercial release. Adam McMaster is another.
