portrait challenge – 12

here is number six finished, thomas mueller, also a german national footballteam player.


i tried my best with the likeness, but if you look at the google fotos, you can see how very much different he looks on many images. so, my strategy was to pick only very few, that looks most similar, and use them as reference… i am not sure how i could else proceed, to get good likeness when i not can have the person sitting here so that i can see him life. if you have suggestions, i would love to hear them in the comments… and, again, more views to better see the sculpting:


on the plus side: i seem to better understand how to sculpt young male faces. they are similar to female faces, in the sense that they are softer. of course, the bony structure is usually stronger than in women, but the skin looks soft…
