Re: my reliefs

Hi Stephan:

I really like reliefs as well. About 3 years ago I had a number of commissions for them, and as a consequence I discovered the world of ancient Greek and Roman coins. Having them in hand is a great learning tool.

I like the expression on the first one, I think the hair on the second is over-simplified and lacks force, and I really like the third one. it has a great balance of austere power and the right amount of detail.

Glad you're here!

Re: my reliefs

I also like medal art.It is difficult to make small portraits,but you done a great job.
The patina gives a nice contrast.

Hi Stephen.No bad.Only to things.The reliefe is to hight for the size .As well the first two coins in 3/4 portraits.The far part of the face should be deep.You would get 3D ilusion of the round head.Have a nice day. Arnis

Re: my reliefs

Those are very nice, you're the first here that I remember who makes medals.
I have a small collection of medals you might like to see;

Re: my reliefs

Stephan
I think that these are very good. I like the first one allot is that Flemish writing around the edge? How about some history what does this relief portray?
The last one is also very good could we have more information, who does it depict or is that not important.
Lets see some more, and how big are they?
Keep up the good work

Some of your reliefs are great Landseer I only wish there was some indication of size.

Re: my reliefs

I'm glad you all like the medals.
Landseer, i like the collection very much,thanks for sharing.
Blake, the first one is saint Leopold Mandic, the language is croatian(saint Leopold,pray for us). The diameters of all the medals are around 7 cm. I have also made a statue of this saint ,and posted some pictures here(the thread name is statue of saint Leopold). Check it out.
the second is Friedrich Handel,the composer,late baroque period.
The last one was inspired by roman portrait medals,which i like very much.

Re: my reliefs

This is one of my bigger reliefs, brass on the wood,30 x 20 cm.
It is a beautiful fresco from the monastery here in Serbia,made in relief. It is called the white angel.
