    Here is another project I started over the summer. Its a 9th scale Guerilla bust from the Missouri-Kansas Border in the beginning on the Civil War. Its made out of Magic Sculpt and the hair is Sculpey. Im really bad at hair so even if its a bit flat I am happy with it.

    The hand needs some work, the thumb is a bit awkward. I am debating wether or not to include the right arm or not, it adds to the figure but still distracts from the bust aspect. What are your thoughts on this?

    Thanks for looking :)

    Anders,

    Good stuff! I say keep the right hand/arm. I like the way it will break the boundaries of the base.

    Nice one Anders....I like how it's shaping up...I think the right arm would help with the composition because of the angle or tilt of the head...I think it's a worthwhile addition.

    I'll keep looking for your next updates.

    Anders,

    Nice work. I agree with the others. Keep the arm. It does help to counterbalance the angle of the head.

    The only things that I noticed is that he area of the forehead between the eyes, just above the nose seems a little flat. If you look at the profile, that area seems like it should have more mass. That and the upper eyelids should protrude out farther than the lower lid from the profile view. Keep us posted on this one. Looks interesting!!

    Thanks for your comments guys!

    I will keep the arm, I agree that it helps tell the story.

    Thanks for the input Matt, I will mess around with it a bit and add some more "meat" on the upper eyelids.

    Will post more pics as soon as I get somewhere on the bust.

    Thanks again guys!
