    Sorry and I have loved all of the releases so far but this guy has an oriental look to the face, pity because I like the subject.

    I tend to agree with Keith on this. Somehow it just doesn't capture a feeling of the period. Maybe the slightly over garish painting doesn't help.

    Agreed. At the first view, looking at the little pic, I thought he was a chinesse warrior.:confused: But it´s a great bust, very well painted.

    I was going to say the same thing about the face looking oriental when we saw this in the resin, but the pics were small so I wanted to wait until we saw larger photos or a painted version.

    It's a nice face overall, and some of the tweaks to make it look more caucasian wouldn't be too extensive*, but they'd be a challenge for anyone who doesn't sculpt much.

    *I would reduce the nostrils, increase the jut of the chin, maybe add a little to the cheekbones. While I was at it I'd add a slight flare to the bridge of the nose, but that's purely a taste thing.

    To reduce the effect of the East Asian look to the face, I'd lessen the effect of the five o'clock shadow, (as depicted it looks less full than a typical European beard). Conversely, filling it in more would have a similar effect. I'd reduce the eyebrows significantly and change the hair color to blond or redhead. I'd try to downplay the skin bulge below the eye with a shift in highlight and shadow.
