Here`s the street merchant finished and painted by my good friend Costas Rodopoulos who lives in Greece, he has a nice approach to colours and likes to be bold which suites this figures clothing. He is set around the late 19th century within Cairo, selling his wares to the passing people.

This figure was an idea born out of the Egyptian street dio i did in which i sculpted the carpet seller, i decided to expand on that 54m figure and create one in 90mm. I initially planned for him to be a carpet seller but then expanded the the concept to make him a street seller selling a wider variey of goods.

This is the final version of the head for the bust, i have reworked it three times now and i have to call it finished, i believe it is as close as i am going to get it now and with the painting added it will bring it more together. I am looking forward to doing my next portrait bust as soon as i find a suitable subject that interests me, i have decided on using a different tecnique next time to ensure proprtions are more accurate.

After working more on the facial features and head i am now more happy with the likeness to Russell Crowe, still might tweek a few more things yet before i call it finished but i think he is going in the right direction now.
Most images i have been finding are of Russell Crowe in the film Gladiator, he has aged ten years since this film and put a few pounds on and i am trying to get an up to date version of him.

This is what i have been working on for the last two weeks, after visiting the cinema a few weeks ago and seeing the promo poster for the new Robin Hood film i knew straight away i wanted to do a bust of Russell Crowe playing the part of Robin Hood. The bust is in 1/9 scale (200mm) and is sculpted from Magic sculpt and duro, i will be tweeking the face more still to get it even closer to Russell Crowe but i am quite happy with the result so far.

This is my second attempt at sculpting a female and my first venture into fantasy sculpting which i have really enjoyed and will definetely be doing more in the fantasy genre. The figure is my version of a female knight Templar on the crusades, she will be mounted on a cliff edge so as to give her a windswept look, i may add a cape yet but have not decided yet.

Finally finished this project and along the way decided to change the composition of the figures so as the colour when painted is distributed around the dio more. I may add some scenery like water jugs, pots, rugs etc at a later date. The groundwork will recieve some texture to it so as it represents a sandy/dirt surface, its far too smooth at the moment.

I have finally managed to finish the Hussar for the dio, still couple of little tidying to do but that will happen when i come to paint him. The sabretache straps are not fixed fully to the figure yet as i want to remove the sabretache and sword for painting. Now onto the reg`t des dromadaires figures to get him finished.
