    Hi Kev,it would look great with legs but I'm not that great a sculptor so I'll settle for busts mate :)

    As always enjoy the innovation you bring to your projects & this "bustorama" is no exception Brian.

    Enjoy learning along the way with you & glad to see you aren't discouraged by that "skirmish" that threatened to distract us from the topic in hand - your art!
    Always find, easier to silence with action than words & your photos do this ;)

    Thanks for pushing the boundaries of what is possible with busts.
    You manage to make what the rest of us do look so ordinary & humdrum.

    Keep it coming!

    And a field as a backdrop. I have seen this cleverly done with dioramas- a fellow takes them out in the field and gets a natural looking blurred background :)

    The art of the military figure at its best, SUPERB Brian, I can tell you now I look every day, this is so exciting and truly inspirational.

    There is nothing to add that hasn't been said Brian except that your work inspires me to push harder in my own.
    A true masterclass of the art of figures/presentation and commitment :wideyed:

    Very best
