He's looking real good. Very interesting approach to doing the ridges on the hat. I would have overlooked the fact that the secondarasry ridges don't 'stand' as tall as the primaries.I don't know if you noticed it as you were carving and fitting the dome, but you had the beginnings of a Top Hat.I vote for a bust, but the full figure would probably be a better seller for you.

Great work a usual.
