He was certainly worth the time and effort. A fine looking piece.
I like how a number of elements have come together on this.....The mounting pedestal, direction of the grain, image used as a title plate....Moving onto the figure.... good brush & colour control, and stepping into new techniques definitely rewarded you (after a short climb up the frustration learning curve....)I think you can be rightfully pleased with your efforts!CheersJamie
Great looking figure! Details are amazing!!Phil.
