This time the winner is ZsoltSchaefer with a masterwork of sculpture I may say: Spanish Hidalgo Congratulations :thumbup:
He was up against Patrick (Poky) who has sculped also a special figure: Celtic Warrior :thumbup:

Much like the Hidalgo, I take my hat off to anyone who can sculpt. It is a talent that is way beyond me. Well done to both, and especially to the victor.

Thank you for the kind words and the votes and a special thanks for Patrick, for taking on a second duel while he was in the middle of another!

Remark to the lady: originally it was ispired by Velasquez' painting "Infanta Doña María, Queen of Hungary" but then I made a different garment, and no curly hair, it would have been too much for me :)

I also made another young woman to accompany her, as her maid or such, so maybe this will be a three-figure set, as soon as I find someone, to cast them in resin.

Thanks again, it was a nice duel!

Cheers
Zsolt

Sculpting is a hard thing to do!
It's all about dimensions, characters bringing to life, dynamics, etc.
Wonderful job of both of you. :thumbup: :thumbup:
