The large Torso - complete and delivered

Well he's finally done and delivered!

Although he looks realistic from a distance he is actually quite colourful close up.

 Here is where we were last time I showed you.. I had made his rear shoulder blue green and although I liked each area I didn't feel it hung together as a whole..

Here is the final version..

The background is a bit more even than in this photo..


Contact me if you'd like something along these lines created! 
I can work from any photos you have. Dramatic lighting is best..I can take photos if necessary
