You are so crazy good at this. Love those brows, what an expressive face.

Wow, the detail you put into this is fascinating! Have you been doing this as a hobby or do you professionally work with this?

Thank you!  I'm a professional sculptor though I don't get paid for these portraits because my husband's biz is so small right now.  My "normal" sculpture work is for realistic animal props and costumes.  People are even more difficult to sculpt than animals, because the people actually have to look like somebody!   Cheesy

I thought as much, your work looks way too professional to be done by an amateur!  Cheesy Keep up the good work! Do you like sculpting animals or people more? Which is more fun to you?

I'm enjoying sculpting these portraits more than animals because I don't have a deadline for these guys, I can take as long as I want.  I hate deadlines!   Cheesy
