if i'm thinking of the right sculpture, i think this still needs quite a bit of work. the cheekbones look off and it just seems a little undefined in places.

your thinking of the wrong sculpture, its of the young julius ceaser busts not the old skinney one that every one thinks it is

see, its the first ever bust made of julius ceaser i thought it needed moderning plus the marble shader takes alot away from the model but i like the shader

don't take it personally, tadpole. There are always a lot of stuff you can fix on your work - especially with replications. Instead of dodging his crit saying he's 'thinking of the wrong sculpture' try taking another look and see if you can refine what he mentioned.

You haven't captured the likeness yet. Keep working

as far as the marble shader goes, I think you're quite right in that it detracts from the model. Loosen the specular highlight and bring the intensity down a bit and it'll look a bit more natural imo.

didn't mean to slag off your work - i was just trying to point out what looked off to me. i think the model looks really good in places - but falls apart in others. just my opinion though.

I disagree with elephantinc, actually. Wrinkles and minor details aren't particularly difficult to add. The main larger forms are what's throwing it off to me, but it's really tough to compare with these completely different angles.

I don't honestly think he wants you to Crit his work!

He's posted it in Finished work, and he is quick to his Guns, when someone makes a comment that questions the models Accuracy, and/or completion.

You will probably find he doesn't want to work on this model anymore (as he's probably been going at it for awhile, or he has other projects to attend to) so he's probably not going to make any changes. Or put your advice to work.

I'm not trying to be offensive... just trying to point out the obvious.

@Tadpole. I actually think your model is good (Though it's not an accurate model of JC)
