    Hi Everyone.

    Well... I need some suggestions. I recently started a Gary Oldman as 'old man' Dracula bust and got as far as Gary's likeness and need to decide either to go for the classic look with the hair up, or the slashed throat version with his hair down? I've attached two pictures, help me decide which one to go with... I'm at the stage in the sculpture where I can go either way :)

    I'm leaning towards the classic pose #1 myself.

    i would go with #1 as well.

    #2 is cool, and a great idea, but its sort of a "specialized" bust, not really the dracula that comes to mind from the movie.

    if there was a compromise, id go with young gary and hair down in the armor. thats the best memory i have of the movie. i know this is for the old guy version though.

    im sure with you working on it, whatever you decide is gonna look terrific :)

    Gotta agree with the pack.

    #1's iconic.

    #2 is very cool, but if you're going to do only one bust from this film, I'd say go with the icon.

    # 2. Not kidding. :D

    There have never been any of the Old Man w/ Howard's wonderful skills out there, but there have been a couple of larger scale pieces done of the Old man and no large scale of the Vampire version.

    Hell, who am I kidding....it doesn't matter. Either would rock..

    My favorite would be #3, top hat and shades a must.

    ;)

    I'd say #1 if you could sculpt him licking the razor:

    :D

    But since it looks like #1 will win out, will you be giving him his looooooooooooong ponytail?

    Alright. I'm going with #1 :D I guess being that he's closer to that already that's the best bet anyhow...

    Thanks for the input guys..

    #2 is cooler and would be great to see you do with gore and all...

    but no where near as recognizable as #1 so...

    both? :p

    Though not my favorite Dracula, the choice of #1 would make it a more desireable (like everything you do) piece for those wanting to construct a full figure. Looking forward to seeing what you'll do with him as always.
