Comparison of my model next to the completed bronze statue. For the purposes of the statue I altered the position of his left hand and lowered his right arm a bit behind his head.
With gratitude and thanks to Petrov for posing for my work!

Yay, such a perfect likeness!! I'd say that you've changed the pose for the better! The statue is just so amazing! The body is just perfect! I myself have no idea how a bronze statue is made, so for me this is truly remarkable! I checked out the other pictures of the same statue and I've gotta say, the shield is also magnificent! It's so detailed and beautiful! Also, I couldn't help noticing the rich texture of the cloth the character is laying on. It's so sophisticated, giving the whole composition quite a royal look! It's all so fantastic!

Your detailed comment is much appreciated! The fabric actually was one of the most difficult parts of the work I did on this piece. The fact you noticed it makes me feel like it was not in vain! The shield and sword were also difficult to capture in bronze. I am so thankful for your support and enthusiasm!

My pleasure! I know how an artist feels! Comments like "nice" and "cute" just don't seem to give the satisfaction! And your work is indeed amazing and every small detail makes the composition even richer! And, sure, the piece wouldn't be the same without the fabric!

I definitely think that the slight tweaking of the pose worked :) As always, it's fascinating to gain some insight to your working process.

Thank you for the kind feedback. I always worry when I "tweak" a pose that it may work against the feeling I want to have the sculpture convey. Although the models exact pose was terrific, it just didn't strike me as being quite the angle or hand position for a conquering general. I am pleased you feel the slight changes worked! :)

You're most welcome. The statue came out beautifully and remains one among my favorites in your gallery. There's definitely a sense of latent power in the figure even as he reclines which is definitely in line with the conquerer you were portraying :)

fascinating... I'm trying to work out how you get something like this off to the foundry, but the result looks great and the model astoundingly handsome

Thank YOU for all your kind messages on so many of my photos. I would be intrigued to know how big the actual scuplture is, I'm guessing fairly large, although I've seen obviously smaller things on your profile...

Most of my work is desk size. The standard figure I sculpt is approximately 12 to 14 inches tall (if it is standing). The Minotaur Lord is one of my tallest, at 17 inches in height.

Obviously looking more closely at the background I see that it is in fact relatively small. I think Alexander Magnus is the best of the scultures you show here, but I'm amazed at how much work you must put into them all !

Thank you. I try and concentrate on detail when I can. It can often make or break a sculpted piece. I am pleased you like "Alexander Magnus" he is my latest full bronze.

HA! I can ask him. You probably would have to wait in line though. Petrov has those bedroom eyes that make both ladies and men melt when he smiles at them, and he knows he does! Not stuck up at all, just at ease with his sexuality.

How did I make the sculpture, you mean? I work with apoxy sculpt putty, rather than clay. Once I finish a piece I make a mold of the statue. In this case I took the statue mold to the bronze foundry and they began a 10 week process of making it into a solid metal sculpture. If I don't consider a piece worthy of being done in bronze (due to the cost) I will pour resin in the mold and make a resin reproduction.
Do you have specific questions about the process? I am always happy to answer questions! :D
Thank you so much for your interest in my work! -Robert

Yes, we all gravitate toward working on those things that captures our interest and passion. I have some friends that do exotic animals, like African Elephants and Rhino's. I like mythology, ancient history, and the male figure, so that is where my emphasis has always been. :)
