Raphael by Ryan Brown
Here's another cool sculpture gift, this time from the talented digits of Ryan Brown. I have several sculptures that Ryan made for me, but I believe this was the first one, and may have been one of his first experiments with Sculpey.
I see Ryan's drawing style all over this sculpture. He really did a great job on the crouching pose, didn't he?
One thing that I always wonder when I look at this piece is whether Ryman meant to leave the plastron area unpainted. (What you see there is the color of the backed Sculpey.) Either way, it doesn't detract from a very nifty rendering of Raphael. -- PL
