Love it. I like his use of the unusual pose and the "not so perfect " models.
The 4.5M crouching kid is a study of balance also.
He has a really good eye. Does he work in molds or armatures do you know deb?
Incredibly realistic. I was searching for his material - he's using
fiberglass resin to sculpt. Hm, I wonder how the process takes place.
Got to find out.....
Emotionally? It's very moving (the pregnant woman, the baby) and
looking at some others, it's almost frightening. You expect them to be
waking up any minute now.
I found a video (rather lengthy) but after about 10 minutes it shows
how Ron worked on the pregnant woman, quite remarkable actually.
I thought he had some sort of mold, but he doesn't. He only makes
a small model first and then scales it to a larger version.
It is truly remarkable.

Did you see the video, deb? How tedious he put the hair in with the
needle. This must take an awful long time to just get the hair on....
Just found the thread. Expect to be interested. Back tomorrow.
I find this work disturbing (not a bad thing with art). I'm not sure why, though. Too real?
