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.

brilliant! The priest is fantastic
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?
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.
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!
Really good work, I am very much impressed
Damned i love the big bust, a huge piece, really like the cape with details
and the man's face is awesome
Been a while, thought Id post some update pics:
Ive been doing a lot of work on the torso detail - its still pretty rough, but coming along. So much left to do....
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...
these are looking really nice man. always liked bernini's stuff, need to get a book of his work. anyway, keep posting!
Thanks for the kind words! This has been a long project for me and the encouragement helps.
The clay is Chavant P40 - its a very hard industrial design clay.
Really lovely work. Hope to see more.
Your bust is spectacular! I love it man keep it comin!!
Wow! Thanks for the pic of you working on the sculpts for sense of scale. Good stuff

The Bernini bust is crazy fantastic.
