    Hi all

    I thought I'd try a bust sculpt after Blabsy gave me a blank manikin.

    I didn't have a plan, he just evolved, when I did the eyes he seemed to age. I decided that he could morph into a Napoleonic Spanish Guerilla, but I'm not to sure. he could be steam punky too I guess.

    I'm not too keen on the Green sideburns, but I was trying to cover up his huge ears.

    any advice would be welcome.

    Cheers


    Jon

    I like it Jon, to me he gives the impression of a Victorian doctor. Obviously it's up to you how you go on with it but I'm thinking frock coat and cravat. :)
    Nothing wrong with the Spanish Guerilla idea though. (y)

    The top hat looks very well done, nice and symmetrical. That's no mean feat.
    Looking forwards to what you come up with,

    I like what you have going on here (y), and I too look forward to the finished product. If he did'nt have such a mean looking scowl, he could perhaps be an undertaker from the old west :D !

    Hi Jon,
    as a first sculpt its a peach, don't let it sit about for too long, its too good not to finish,
    I have had the pleasure of seeing it in the real and its good enough as a master for commercial release.
    Top job matey.
    Best Regards
    Paul

    This evokes images of Dr Watson to go with a Sherlock Holmes bust.
