    Wow man, speechless, what a total beauty. The bust is amazing and the paintwork really made it look fantastic. Well done Steve, what a beauty.

    Steve, can't stop looking at it, i love the work on the uniform especially the neck and the adornment on the pitcher. This is really something else. The expression on his face also reflects his mood.

    Thanks Brian. This bust (or half figure) fought me all the way. Firstly, the arms didn't fit well so the jug and pitcher didn't align properly. I had to seperate the jug's handle from the arm and resculpt so I could align properly. Handling was tough too due to size. But all in all it turned out well

    Even though it does not look right as it seems you sawed off the feet, which we all know you DID NOT, you fought him well & won by a big margin cheers
