Very nice and very detailed. No crits here. Are you going to "age" it and beat it up a bit?

Looks terrific! What method do you use to get the little detailed swirls around the column if you don't mind me asking.

I won't be able to post any shots of the final project but perhaps after I finish, I'll age it and such.

I started with the end of a cylinder and then just started cutting in alot of edges with the split polygon tool. Then I extruded away from the cylinder to create the bridge to the other swirl if that makes sense.

I have to agr agr agree with bullet, if you were to bring the leave closer to the base and make them thicker that could work......impressed dave
