    Hi all,

    Here are some photographs of my first bust called "The Old Jeffries, the homeless". It was inspired by photographs taken by Lee Jeffries and Don McCullin.

    This bust was modelled with Sculpey Firm and Super Sculpey. It was built during a weekly figure modelling workshop organized by Pierre-Jean Chabert, a Parisian professional artist who started by figures before modelling larger models (http://www.pjchabert-sculpture.com/). All my thanks to him.

    I knew what it was before I read the caption so kudos to you and your instructor. Are you painting him?

    That is a beauty Didier. I can see a lot of potential for customising.
    Only comment is personally I feel the nose is less well defined than the rest of the piece.
    Cheers

    Well, I'm trying to determine if I can make some resin castings. Who would be interested in getting one?
