Congratulations Myron! Of all the submissions I think your sculpture represents the character Quigley the best. Your carving technique is clean and crisp and your painting amplifies those aspects and brings your figure to life. Your details are spot on. Considering all of these things I'm proud to declare you the winner of the first Out West Challenge.
To the rest of you....as I said before you are all winners in my book. It's clear when looking over the entries that a lot of time and care went into your efforts. I hope this little contest forced you to stretch a little by developing a carving that is truely yours. Also, as I mentioned earlier, if you would like for me to comment individually on your piece just drop me an email and I'll give you my honest opinion.
Again, to Myron...."You are definitely the man!" at least till next year. The trophy will be in the mail as soon as I get the name tag ordered and nailed on.
There are more photos of Myron's carving in the Gallery. Of course your comments are welcome.
