Ante has been upped I think, feels like I've increased my skills a bit.

Anyways, this trumpeter is based upon Flemish and German influence. Another Ansar head, I was about to sculpt hair and a cap but thought he could be interesting as a moor perhaps? thoughts?

Henry VIII & James IV had moorish musicians, I'm assuming they were imitating courts of the continent though I don't think I've noticed them mentioned or illustrated in French sources ( this chap is destined to accompany some Gendarmes).

Very clean sculpting  8)

Lovely work there, really improving on sculpting cloth. I like the head bare, but also a turban would look nice with ostrich feathers or something.

Simply excellent work Stuart  :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*

The folds in the clothing are brilliant.  8) 8) 8)

If Henry VIII employed Moors as musicians in imitation of Continental practice, would they have been sans hat? I don't know about Henry VIII's times but as far as the Battle of Bosworth it was seen as extremely impolite for a male (or female) not to be wearing headgear of some description.

I reckon you should gibe sculpting from scratch a go quite soon if not now  :)
