United Empires' BATMAN

    Hi Guys,
    Here's my latest completed commision project and my first posting to the vBench.
    The first shot shows the bust right after assembly and you can see that this was designed as a "floater", no pedestal just a rod from the base to the bust. I didn't care for that look, so I sculpted a pedestal from A&B to make, IMHO, a more substantial piece as shown in the next two shots.
    The bust is all in oils except the pedestal which is four coats of Vallejo black that was buffed to a satin finish.
    Best! Ric

    Ric,

    Very nice. I have this bust and have been putting it off. I like the way you have done the pedestal, I think it adds to it.

    Hi Ric,
    Nice work. I especially like how well you added the pedestal.
    Good paint job too. Nice skin tones :)
    I did this bust a couple of years ago and it's still one of my favorites.
    Thanks for posting it for us.

    You know how much I love Bats and this turned out great, one of the best Maddox's renditions I think.

    Nicely done! The pedestal is a very nice addition. One of my all-time favorite renditions of Batman. I should have listned to John and picked one of these up in Atlanta! Cool stuff!

    Great work, Ric. I finished this piece myself a few months ago and had a great time with it. I went with the "floater look," but your pedestal looks great. You can't beat UEM products and this Maddox classic.
