    First post - works in progress

    Hi -

    This is my first post here. There's a lot of really great work on these boards!

    These are a couple of works in progress - the bust is a Bernini repro Ive been working on for a while and the figure is a chavant cast of a water based clay piece I did a year ago that Im cleaning up and refining.

    Really nice pieces. Did you do the Bernini piece completely from photo reference? It's executed wonderfully! Something about it makes it feel a little tiny younger than the original sculpture, but it's still exquisite.

    Is the male figure done from life?

    Hi -

    Thanks guys. :-)

    Yes - the Bernini is entirely from photo ref - I found the Christies catalogue from when it was auctioned in the early 90s which has a number of great photos of the piece.

    I agree - he does need a little age refinement - still tweaking the portrait in between working on the torso details & hair.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Scott

    yes i too am impressed with your work!..i didnt realize the scale of the priest piece, that is truly superb, the relief on his clothing is nearly a fantastic piece in itself...we want more!

    The bust is definitely my fav... just have one quick question for you if you don't mind me asking... is the clay you are using a water base or an oil and what kind or brand is it...

    The head sculpture is so detail !

    I can see the emotion in his face ! The weary look over time yet a touch of child hood innocent
    Good job scottwells !

    I love the Bernini remake! The trunk of your figure seems bit long. thanks for posting!
