    Here's my latest bust, it's a U.S Buffalo soldier from the late 1860's . I was intending to do a SBS but got carried away , that and being off work due to snow and ice :)
    Appreciate you looking and I welcome all comments and critique.

    Cheers Ken

    Now that's a really nice bust Ken, I've been looking for a good bust on this subject ever since seeing the film Buffalo Soldiers starring Danny Glover ,it's a cracking film .
    The only one small thing is I think the top lip could be thicker but that's all

    Carl, thanks mate, although someones pointed out that I missed the crossed swords on the hat.:eek:. Will add tomorrow. :)

    Chippy, many thanks and I see what you mean about the top lip, not sure if I can add more as I'm afraid he's already baked.

    Cheers Ken

    Another cracker Ken!

    We've had the snow down here in Kent as well, but I haven't been as productive as you! Maybe tomorrow? (More likely a hike to the supermarket!)

    Trying to get into work is 'above my pay grade!'

    All the best,
    Cheers,

    Superb sculpting Ken.
    I think it completed just similarly with an image of a picture.
    Facial expression and details are also Great.
    Wonderful!
    I congratulate completion.

    Off work because of snow !!!!! must be soft in the building game up north :p

    This is looking really good mate and i was wondering when your next bust was going to be out, looks like you got stuck into this one and pulled it of very nicely, real nice subject also.

    catch you later mate

    Great Job Ken:

    I am Kermit the Frog Green with envy. I've seen a number of these Buffalo
    Soldier Busts done over the years, and I think yours is the best rendition of
    that well documented soldier that I have seen.

    However, I will say that for me personally, I don't think the ties of the
    neckerchief on his chest have long enough ends. From the knot to the ends
    of those two pieces of cloth is not long enough, in my opinion.

    Great sculpting however,

    ricardo
