    Certainly do like it Palo (y)(y)

    Is it a commercial figure or one you are keeping to yourself?

    Thank you. It was a free creation without a specific producer. But now the situation is different. It is already agreed that it will become commercial.

    PS this would make a good pairing with the release of the one with fish ( think that's what it was ! ) that was done previously

    Thank you. Yes Nap is when I gave my wife this look, I saw how she smiled submissively. His laughter is contagious. :) And I do not know the bust of a monk with fish. I was inspired by paintings by a German painter.

    Producing it will be United Empires Miniatures - USA

    Beautiful work; a real "painter's" face.

    It's a great figure! The only criticism I could offer is that I'd prefer to see it with a clear Bierkrug, not one cast in solid-colored resin, and in the style depicted in Grutzner's paintings. As a collector of beer mugs and glasses, that's something that always catches my eye, and I notice that with figures, it often seems an afterthought. On a metal figure holding a mug, it's left as plain metal and painted as if it were pewter, even though a stoneware or ceramic mug would be more appropriate, and offer an opportunity for the painter to add some additional color to his piece.

  15. offo A Fixture

    But I understand it's meant for casting. There was no point in choosing transparent material. This will allow for individual modifications. And the choice of tin mug is also good.

    I really like this one! Good work.

    Love it, such a character, will add to my wants list.

    Not at all. It could be cast as a separate piece. And a tin mug is the least likely probability for a German monk, that is, a Bavarian or Austrian monk. Stoneware is the likeliest, glass next, and tin the least.
  19. offo A Fixture

    I will not decide what to cast a mug as a sculptor. This is the producer's thing. And I do not see why the master piece should be made of transparent material. It does not make sense. And so it can be monk who have a pot of stoneware or tin and even after a small individual adjustment can be a glass cup with a mesh. And monk can be anything. That's the advantage that everyone chooses their choice. And I will be delighted with many different versions. I hope you understand.
  20. theBaron A Fixture

    Sorry, I didn't realize that this is a master. I thought it was a finished, that is, a production casting.
