New Head Sculpt
Hello and thanks for visiting. A friend recently commissioned this 200mm or 1/9th scale head sculpt and here's how it finished. I believe it will be added to a bust (sculpted by someone else) depicting him in his modern, Italian army uniform and gear. Anyway, I continue to enjoy the challenges of sculpting from photographs only. It is frustrating at times especially without 3/4 views and views from above and below the subject, but we do what we can. My version has a bit wider face, but I think from other pictures I've seen of the subject, the ones sent to me suffer from lens distortion which makes the nose appear larger and the eyes farther apart. The likeness suffers from not having all the info I need from a real sitting, but flying to Italy wasn't budgeted this month unfortunately! Enjoy.
