    Nice, he looks a little more "intense" than other renditions I have seen. I like the mix of the shades of green on the uniform and helmet. One thing, you might want to add the bolt handle to the rifle, somehow they forgot to mold one for it. Well done.

    Lovely rendition of a popular bust and like Jason says - brilliant intense stare.

    Bolt is indeed missing on most works I have seen

    I am not convinced by Helmet's colour ( personal thing I am sure) and green on the hat. The hat's leather should be in more brownish/ochre tones as it wouldn't be dyed green. It is not impossible to have such colour, but it creates dominance of green tones that is a bit too much for me.

    This is minor stuff, off course, overall its a great bust.

    Love the effects you've created in the face. The eyes looks really intense and focused and he has a serious, determined look.

    I'd like to see a bit more work on the fingers, especially around the stock of the rifle. They could be a bit better defined IMHO.

    Really real. Good work with clothes an textures, but for me the expresion hard, decided and defiant is the best.

    This presentation is excellent. And the "scene" is filled
    with tension and atmosphere. . . which is so hard to
    accomplish. And your photography is also first rate.
    Congratulations on an outstanding presentation.

    Super! Personally I'd be tempted to darken the circles under the eyes some.

    Dunno - Maybe not - - I nipped out and looked at photos of Jude Law in the role of Vassili, the sniper in Enemy at the Gates and maybe the make-up people didn't darken the circles under his eyes as much as I recalled.

    All the best,
    Dan
