    Hi folks!
    this is what I'm modelling latelly, apart from Rommel (lol) who will show up very soon, this one will have the other full arm holding the sword, as you can see the hand is just sketched.
    This greco's painting represents a noble man in the moment of giving his holy vow, Im working from only 1 view reference, lots of adjustments in need yet, this is it from now, cheers!

    thank you Antonio, I agree the ability to put a piece down and work endlessly is quite a nice quality of the putty :)

    thanks for the kind words mates, very apreciate!

    Darko, I like to hand drawing the head to get familiar with the features, do some measures like eyes proportion, divide distance or create an eyes-nose triangle, then I took pics and print them and compare with what I did sculpt, I also draw on a clear acetate the head proportions and overlap it on my model pic,I know this can be done with PS but I'm more confortable in real paper, basically is this and repeat and repeat and ... hope this helps!

    Simple and elegant, I like this a lot. There are a lot of period portraits that would make great busts. ~Gary

    I agree with you Gary, there's so many portraits that would be nice to have in bust, so what are we waitting for? lol I have in my list some like Velazquez, Rembrandt or Klimt... seems like latelly Norman Rockwell ilustrations inspired some brands and with good results, the chances are unlimited!
    thanks for the coment mate!
    Antonio
