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.
