    Thanks guys.
    Brian, this is rather large scale. It's actually more than 250mm

    Your sculpting is great, your painting is even greater, but your photos still SUCK like mine Sad

    The lighting source cannot be coming/reflecting from below as it WILL DIFFUSE ALL CONTRAST Evil or Very Mad

    You've said it once & I agree 101% that your/my photography could be undermining your/my otherwise very nice work Twisted Evil

    Steve

    I am noticing that bullet mark and date near it, which is really a nice detail but can you explain more. I know that in renaissance they used to boost with a bullet broof breast plate by having the same type of mark but not aware if it continued into a later era ...

    Guys thanks. Will try to bring it over on Thursday.
    Ivan, this exact uniform is still in existence today. It's part of a vast collection that the client has of incredible uniforms. The previous two busts I did for him also represent uniforms from this same collection. I have actual photos of the cuirass with bullet mark and date. Now I'm not 100% sure on this but I think the date recalls when the bullet mark was obtained
