Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

Bobby C vs. Arnie Kim! This is gonna be very interesting!

Howard didn't nail it, CM didn't nail it and the Sideshow PF was a total crap. No western sculptors nailed the likeness. Bobby, you are the only hope besides Kim.

This is what I'd like to see. I think this one will work though the pic has been photoshopped. The gesture, pose and expression are all there.

Hi Bobby, I have a huge collection of Bruce Lee books and magazines, so if I can be of any help with pics or anything, give me a shout. For me it either has to be Enter the Dragon or Way of the Dragon (Return of the Dragon in the US). If it isn't a smiling portrait he needs the pursed lips or the curled lip at least. All the busts I've seen up to now have been straight faced. Have a look at a few drawings that I ws inspired to create during my teens.

That's an iconic pose Danno. He should have the cuts from Han though. I did a model kit years ago in the same scene.

Can't wait to see what you do Bobby. This is very exciting for a Bruce Lee fan like myself

Awesome awesome news! One of the best sculptors creating the legend. Those are good poses but I would think they would look a bit awkward as a bust. I would much rather a museum pose. Something like these:
