Truly an outstanding piece.
Build: 10 Smooth, clean sculpting. So much detail not just on the figure but the base as well.
Paint: 10 The different tones in the coat between cloth & shell. Tones in the claw and face & peg leg all are quite convincing, I especially like the contrast in the shells with the blues & oranges. They really stand out against the darker colors.
Likeness: 9.99999999987821 Looking at some pictures online, it seems that the key is was held out on the other side (though maybe in the move it was held out on his left) You did get the claw arm & peg leg on the correct sides though.
Creativity: 10 All the work that went into the coat and base really bring the whole thing to life. Having the key even more so. One thing about the character that was struck me was his lack to nostrils due to the octopus. That and just how fierce he was. Both those aspects show through in your work.
Thanks for participating!
