Hey guys. I've been attempting a likeness sculpture of Benedict Cumberpatch and am struggling to nail the likeness. This is the point I'm at.
I have been toiling at it and pushing parts of it back and forth for hours. When I get things in line at one angle, when I shift it to another view, they don't line up with the reference from another angle.
Now, this guy Vimal Kerketta is one of my favorite portrait artists. His likenesses are spot on, yet when I line up his sculpt's profile to an actual picture of the person, it doesn't line up at all. (I know the expressions are slightly different etc but the difference is pretty extreme, and from the front the likeness is even stronger than his side view here)
What does this mean? Should I give up on trying to measure out things closely and concentrate on exaggerating features to achieve likeness? I'm lost here.
