"Lopin Lenny"(previously Riley)
This is part kickstarter, part jumping back into the hobby with both feet!
Back in 2009/2010 I sculpted a piece by the name of Leggs, and a followup loping version. Both editions have long sold out and I kept one solitary copy as my archival master.
As I continue to expand the studio, casting has become a large part of what we are looking to do in the future--this way all future work can molded and cast in-house. In order to do a test run on all our equipment and also get this aspect up and running, I have customized this master with quite a few changes. Wanting to improve on the original master, he has been gone over nose to tail and given a new identity. First off, this piece is now a HE, and appropriately made more masculine throughout. Heavier muscling, reworked face/jowls, neck and detailing added nose to tail. He also has a longer mane and tail perfect for all sorts of performance events.
It was important to me that this piece was priced reasonably in order to make it more accessible to everyone. Time payments of 3 months are available on unpainted pieces, 6 months on painted.
This will be a very limited run of 35 unpainted pieces, and 15 painted pieces to be finished by myself. Unpainted pieces will be $350 PPD Paid in Full. $350 + shipping if paid in time payments.
Painted pieces will offered as BUYER'S CHOICE - which means that those who purchase these pieces can choose their color. I really wanted to have a collaborative element to this guy to help make him special to each person who takes him home. These will be the only "commissioned" pieces I will offer for the foreseeable future. Pricing on Artist Proof colors will be $1500 solid colors, and price will increase with patterns. Patterned pieces can be quoted prior to purchase. Any of these 15 not spoken for will be painted and sold via auction. Time payments will be available up to 6 months.
He comes elaborately packaged - but that I'd like to keep a surprise for when you open the box! :)
UNPAINTED PIECES SHIPPING END OF JULY. Painted pieces will be finished in order of reservation and within 6 months timeframe.
All pieces are sold out.
Painted pieces will be available as completed.
