    The only thing I can see 'wrong' with this sculpt is that its TOO good for your second one! What exactly do you think is the problem with it? Looks fine to me...

    I wish I had your 'problems'.

    Chris, lovely work. I like the pose and you have some good detail work.

    The only problem I can see is that his right arm is too long. The upper arm is out of proportion, probably because you have put the arm band on. Compare the right and left upper arms on your figure and I think you will see the difference.

    Hi Rambo,

    really nice figure, I think there is nothing wrong with him. I can't exactly see Robert's findings (but of course he is a pro sculptor), just my opinion.

    Let's get him painted!

    I think it's the arms. It's difficult to tell in photos, but it appears that if the arms were at the figure's side and fingers extended, the tips of the fingers would be nearly to the knee. Have a look at it anyway. Even if measured out, if something doesn't look right, it's probably not.

    It looks really good Chris! This is minor and just a suggestion - perhaps you could rotate the right foot just a fuzz towards the center? It looks a teensy bit off balance.

    The musculature looks really nice and I really (!) like the bear head!

    First, I love that you did a bow lance. It looks great. If this went commercial, you can bet I'd be first in line to buy one.

    Two observations.The pectotral muscles look just a bit too defined along the outer edges, almost as if they were a breast plate.
    Will the right hand be holding the carbine? Right now, it appears not to. If the carbine is intended to be hanging on him, you may want to add a shoulder sling. I'm pretty sure it would be too heavy to hand on the belt holdin up the leggings and breachclout.

    Another idea. Is the calf of the left leg is too short compared to the right leg? Maybe it's just me and my jealousy.

    I'd say leave it as it is and paint it. If something IS wrong, you'll learn from it and the figure will remind you not to do that again.
