This is a wonderful sculpture from ARGUDO Miniatures. Pretty good likeness of the 'Great Emancipator'. Abe was known for his sometimes unkempt appearance, so I added some green stuff to his hair and whiskers to help "mess" him up. The kicker of the project is to paint him in black and white. This time, I plan to prime the bust in black...Never used black as a primer before. We'll see how that works out. Now, off to throw Spielberg's LINCOLN in the DVD player and get lost for an hour or two.
I live in the small town of Bath, Michigan with my wife and children.
I have been modeling figures for 25 plus years. Since I was a kid, I've always been fascinated by military uniforms of the past and soldier material culture. This then led me to express my interest through modeling figures from many time periods and scales.
