The Old Gnome

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I finished this bust last year but didn't take any decent pictures until yesterday. Anyway It's the old gnome bust by War Griffon Miniatures (Model Display Products).

There is a slight conversion as on the original he's holding the pipe in his hand but when I attended my dads wedding last year he had some of these plastic jewels as part of the table display so I employed several small children and got them to nab them all smiley.gif in the hope of finding one that would fit correctly.

I normally don't care for busts, HOWEVER your WONDERFULLY DONE piece is both the exception & EXCEPTIONAL. The things that make the piece for moi is the way you captured the skin tones of an old Guy...the redness under the eyes & the age/liver spots in particular; AND the wood grain on the brier pipe is PERFECT. FANTASTIC WORK!
