VEEERY nice! Wish my playthings looked like that, well, except for the foot, but I suppose that is unfinished?
I like it!

mmm yes, I leave it that way, unfinished, let's see If I can explain (parcial control of the english :tongue2: ),
while sculpting I thought that when you finish a sculpt, and more in a human sculpt(we are very used to see humans), the sculpt adquires some kind of indenpendent taste,in this case, the sculpt is more like a "little human", and the sculpt taste loses power, and I liked the idea of trying to create that confusion, may be I must exaggerate more the unfinished leg, to give more power to the "sculpt taste", may be I try another sculpt..thinking more deeply on this.
Hope you understand and like the explanation :)

Nice one Edgar. I remember this one.
I do have a point to raise about it.
His right side I think the bicep would be in front of the chest muscles next to it, if you know what I mean.
The unfinished leg I think I can translate better.
I have seen some sculptures that have unfinished areas either left as blocks or rough carved away.
I think Ergman is doing that to emphasise that the figure is more a sculpture and not a "miniature".

mmm I find the biceps position quite correct..when you throw towards your back the elbow, the chest muscles stretch, appearing the dorsal side muscles, and the biceps rest on them, i'll take a look anyway.(supposing I've understood you correctly :) )
about the explanation..great resume :thumb: , I think you get the idea jeje Thanks for the resume...damn language barrier :rocketwho

I made it sound like I thought the bicep was wrong when I meant the muscle group next to it.
I agree the bicep looks fine but I think the 4 small muscles in the group below the chest next to the bicep would be stretched flatter with the shoulder moving back.

the group of muscles you say, is not conected to the shoulder, their function is moving outside the ribs when you breath, they just appear or dissappear depending the position of the great dorsal

This is my first time to see this sculpture and I love it. Here in the USA, a corner of a quilt is always left unfinished. It is our way of saying nothing is perfect. Grand idea for this sculpt.
