This is another great piece sculpted by artist John Schuster. It's basically your typical "Gray Alien" design, but with quite a gruesome cleft lip and palate rotten nose. The bust is solid resin cast, and a one of a kind piece according to John. The little Feller is just a touch under 5" tall, and flourishing with subtle skin wrinkles and detail. The skin tone I painted turned out more purple than I originally intended; a minty, pistachio green was one of the colors that I'd been applying and knocking back alternatively throughout the paint process, and it seems a knocked it back a bit too much to even detect! But, in the end, I'm happy with it, and John seemed to be pleased with it as well.
