    Hello everybody,

    This is my first attempt at sculpting a portrait: the subject is the actress Maggie Smith. Height is 15 cm and it was sculpted in Chavant Le Beau Touché HM.

    I made a silicone mould and will probably cast it in plaster or resin and then paint it. The photos are of the original sculpture.

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Thanks!
    Elia

    That's really really good. I recognised her before I saw the name. Its a stylistic piece but you certainly have what it takes to turn out inspired character and personality busts. Make sure your first is not your last.

    Wow, for a first sculpt that really is good. Particularly the head on view.
    I'd say: keep sculpting!

    Cheers,

    Thank you, Marc S and Adrian!

    Actually, I've been sculpting for about 5 years but this is my first portrait.

    My next project is a WWI Gordon Highlander figure. I'll post pictures soon.

    All the best,
    Elia
