    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.

    Prost!

    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.

    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.

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