in this case, as far as the design, I received a drawing of the design, mostly for the pose. They then said you can add your touch to the sculpt so I redesigned the armor to be more detailed, with an art nouveau theme. Curvy line and pattens. The sculpt, I did all you see here. I guess they tweaked some stuff in house after I delivered the piece. That happens often either in repair of possible broken piece during shipment or changing some aspect they thought needed improvement. I'm not sure what was actually sculpted by the others mentioned but i sculpted probably 99% of the piece.
