In my opinion, these people are artistically stunning, just like a painting. Realistically speaking, these folks need a bath and some laundering. :-) Seriously, they look as if they belong in a flat painting on a wall. Amazing, I love the technique. Very well done. I enjoy enough art in museums to appreciate what you've done here. You've crossed the line from modeling/recreating life in detail to artistic renditions. Bravo and ballzy! I seriously hope the environment that you put these people in will share the same artistic qualities and I'll be waiting to see what you do. Do you hear me? Waiting! And I hate to wait so you're going to have to whip it up and show me soon!

Ian, is there a canvas piece that your replicating with these pieces? If there is, can you link me to it, or send me a photo of it please. I just think this is so interesting.
