    Hiya Gary, I see clearly what you mean about the forearms and the left hand. (only because you pointed it out though!) :)
    The fingers look a tiny bit short as you said, and it's an easy correction.
    As for the forearms, they have a lot going on, what with the large buttons and hefty cuffs...maybe it's just that, that makes them look a little heavy compared to the upper portions....I gotta say I still think it's a tremendous piece of work though, and I really look forward to seeing Joe's paint job.
    And I'm glad we're going to see Harry Lee's progress too.

    All the best.......Roy.

    I think that's the key - I find myself in the same boat fairly often too. Sometimes though, I find that months later when I look at the figure again I've lost that original "image" I had envisioned and I like the final product much better than I had before. I notice the things I actually did right rather than immediately focusing in on the stuff I didn't like.

    Francesca, Not only did I look at the pictures again, but I looked at the figure and there are some things I feel that I managed to do better on this time around than I did on previous projects. Though I appreciate the kind words, I still disect everything I do, and I'm especially harsh on myself if something that should be simple does not look right. Thanks for your thoughts.~Gary

    Hello Gary,

    I missed this thread altogether. Just caught up today.

    Don't let the small details upset you. Despite the apparent simplicity, this is an ambitious pose. The key word in this kind of pose is BALANCE and I have to admit that you've got it perfectly. (y)

    As for keeping the original mental image, consider yourself lucky because it happens frequently that my sculpts take up a life of their own and change the subject before I know it! :lol:

    Again, BRAVO!

    Quang, Thanks. The same thing happens to me too. Unless I'm doing a portrait figure (rare) I let the face evolve on it's own. Sometimes I get surprising results, other times the face does not fit the attitude of the figure.~Gary
