    Stephen, Thank you. I'm happy with the results and plan on doing a few more portrait bust and others with a bit more life and action to them.~Gary

    Excellent as I said before. Are you painting this one yourself?

    John, Thanks, I'd like to paint it, only time will tell when. It would be nice to get a few castings made, it's something I may look into. I do not believe there would a lot of commercial appeal for this bust. There are very few busts that really grab you, this is somewhat plain and not really dramatic.~Gary

    Plain and undramatic maybe... but one amazing sculpt. Even if it's not someone with mouth wide open shouting, it more than makes up for it in realism. Even if you don't think you'd be able to sell it with a company, I'd still do a couple castings just for yourself. Kinda sad though how many busts there are on the market that can't stand up to this one in terms of skill, and you don't think you have a chance...

    Guys, Here are pictures of "Karl" complete with his pedestal base. For those of you that are interested, the bust will be a commercially available piece. I'll post more information at a later time in regards to who is going to produce the piece as well as availability.~Gary
