    It looks so real! The hair and painting really finished it off nicely. Curiosity has the best of me, how much for one if you'd even do it again?

    Oh and what kind of maquette structure do you use underneath to get the multiple poses?

    Thanks.
    I've had a lot of people approach me to do one of these for them.
    Unfortunately, I'm just way too busy to take on any commission work.

    We thinned it down a lot so we could airbrush it on. Instead of using a sealer, which often creates a generic looking specularity, we mixed corn starch directly into the paint to dull the albedo of the dried paint. If one is iffy about using corn starch, you can use talcum powder with similar results. I find it works better than dull coats or sealers by themselves, though they do work fine, too.
