    Here is the latest thing I have been working on. It is a bust by Young who in my opinion makes the best bust's on the market. The shiny areas are sweat I added with varnish. Thanks for looking.

    Hi Mike,

    Absolutely brilliant. No, let me rephase myself: absolutely how I would want it done. I took a stab at this one some time ago too. Didn't work out.

    Varnish for sweat is an idea I would love to steal, if you don't mind.

    Best bust? I think all Young's busts are pretty brilliant! I would consider Young's latest to be the best one yet. How do you like it?

    Congrats plenty,
    Michael

    Hey Bill Murray. . .

    Whoa Nellie, Mike:

    Nothing about this bust was "Lost in Translation". Even Scarlet Johannson (sp)
    would approve. Nice job.

    Tse; thanks for the comments, yes all of the young busts are incredible. the varnish trick is free for the taking. I stole it myself about a month ago from someone on this site.

    Jayhawk: you know the golden rule; "it doesn't cost anything to pay attention". The lost in translation comment is so 好 . If anyone ever accuses you of not paying attention I call them a liar.

    Beautiful work Mike. The varnish worked out spot on. I like the pollar you are using as a plinth too....great idea.

    Stunning work on this bust.
    The collum used as base is also a great idea.

    Great work Mike , like a lot the skin tones, especially the top head, perhaps just a little to much purple on the lips ?

    Thanks for the comments fellas, I really appreciate the kind words. Stefano; I noticed the same thing about the lips and am going to re-work them, thanks for pointing it out. I am glad the column turned out ok and was acceptable.

    Thank you again for looking.
