    Thanks John - this project has definitely been a learning experience. I'm very happy with it so far though.

    Francesca, Again, that mask is just great. It's nice to see someone that's passionate enough about a subject to include as much as possible without cutting corners.~Gary

    I was looking through things and realized I never actually posted the completed goalie...

    Here he is:

    Superb, Francesca. Cleverly done! The mask by itself is impressive and the action pose is fantastic!

    all the best,

    Thanks a lot guys, I'm glad you all liked it.
    I won't be painting it though - someone else will.
    I noticed something upsetting though yesterday: I had used a resin blank mannequin of a head I had sculpted as the basis to build the rest of the features on but now it appears to be leaching (oil?) in certain spots... the primer has come off somewhat. I was thinking perhaps I would remove all the paint from the head, apply some superglue to the affected areas and re-sand. Perhaps that will keep this in check? Otherwise I have a big problem.

    Hello Francesca,

    since I saw your sculpts first time I loved them - that was yesterday. Your sculpts are absolutly perfect and loaded with a lot of power.

    And it`s an inspiration for me to see your work step by step. Thanks a lot for this documentation and charing.

    I´m impatient to see your next work - until I admire your finished sculpts. :eek:

    All the best,
    Markus

    Markus: that's very nice of you to say. I appreciate it. :)
