Napoleon Bust -Update 8/29

Hello again and thanks for checking in. I have done some further refining of the facial features of this latest bust. It's better than it was, but still some tweaking here and there. It's difficult with a well known face with which there are only paintings for reference as there really is a lot of variation though they still all have a certain "Napoleon-ness" about them. Trying to depict him at the coronation so he was a bit younger, too. The laurel wreath crown was difficult, but fun. Just starting to add the robe which looks a little funny, but will make sense as it develops. The sleeve folds are going in too.

Thanks for looking.
