Hopefully just the angle of the photo but that doesn't look like The Beat, to me.

The sculptor did Sir Bob and Sir Alf, which are both brilliant, so I don't think it will be too far off.

Trust the process. Trust Phil.

The sculptor said previously that the head on these small models wasn’t going to look right because of the scale:

‘You have previously stated that the head is the least important aspect at this stage.

As you can imagine, the head of my maquette is smaller than a Brussels sprout and his eyes are the size of a grain of rice. Getting a spot on likeness is very difficult at that scale.

I always aim to get a good resemblance but a good likeness at this early stage is not a priority. What is much more important is getting the balance, weight, flow and look right.

Does the pose work from all angles and not just one? Is it a pleasing aesthetically for the observer? Does the pose work as a stand alone subject? These are the questions I ask at this stage.

I can also at the maquette stage make minor changes if it is required by third parties. ie move an arm easily, turn his head slightly etc.

A facial likeness is very much the most important aspect when the full scale statue is completed but at this stage not so.‘

Ah of course, I never considered that. Thanks.

Hadn't read it but yeah I agree. Take's the edge off slightly for me.

Agreed. Esp as so many have already donated for the initial crowdfunding.
