    Hi Steve

    Looking very sculpting , it has a classic look in the way it's shaped and style

    Personally I like the idea of the sculpt extending to just below the bugle and with the full right arm ....buts that me !

    Thanks for the updates , good to see a sculpt progress

    Looking forward to seeing more

    Happy sculpting

    Call me a bluff old traditionalist, Nap, but this is my take on a bust, as defined in the dictionary.... "a piece of sculpture representing the head, shoulders, and upper chest of a human body...." - anything else isn't a bust!! (y)
