Holy crap!! I can't tell you how awesome it is for me to hear a bruce lee 1:1 is being done! and by bobby c, talk about perfection
Personally I'd go with his look from enter the dragon, pose wise it's alot more difficult......

Congratulations on the comission Bobby! I have no doubt that you will produce the defining portrait of Bruce Lee - no matter what pose you choose to depict him in! From a personal standpoint, I have to agree with AsOneDead - it should probably be an museum pose. So many of the action poses of Bruce Lee rely on the position of his hands to convey the drama of the moment (pretty hard to express in a bust unless you include a hand in relation to the bust ! ). Whatever pose you choose to base your sculpt on, I can't wait to see it!

Enter the Dragon Lee is my fav!
I'd say, go for a different pose than the norm. I would use nunchucks in his pose. There's already a few pieces that have the classic Lee stance.

Enter the Dragon. Yup. Nothin' cooler. Game of Death is probably the most recognizable outfit though or the classic Kung Fu gi.

It's only a bust.

Can you elaborate on the parameters you have been given. Bust can mean a lot of things, from shoulders up, to upper torso including the upper and lower ab.

I'm a huge Bruce Jun Fan Lee fan (as are probably quite a few here). I have a mini-library of books on Lee, and I would love to see more statues produced with much better depictions of his on-set stance and character. A restrictive bust initially sends shivers up my spine as Lee was all about the total package, all about balance and perfection of the body. I'm very curious as to what you are allowed to do here, and what you are thinking of doing.

Here's my latest addition:

Not perfect by any means, but closer than most. I yearn for something really iconic.

One of my favourite DVD covers:



Notice the intensity of the eyes, the furrowed brow and the trademark scowl. This is Bruce Lee.
