Newest Project: The Battle of Anghiari Bronze Sculpture
Creating breathtaking, impressive; stunning Realistic Bronze Sculptures
Welcome to my passion - Fine Art Bronze Art: " Creating breathtaking, impressive; stunning Realistic bronze sculptures works of art"
My name is Caesar Yanez, I am a bronze sculptor.
In a nutshell I strive to offer the most fulfilling experience for my clients. I do this by keeping in constant communication, via emails, phone calls and blog postings. For each composition I try to create a blog in order to memorialize the composition. For instance, a life-size poodle for a San Francisco client, a life-size Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier for a Canadian client, a 1/3 scale Rhodesian Ridgeback for a Brazilian client have their respective blogs.

My love and concentration is on producing spectacular, exciting; dramatic fine art. My fine art portrays many subject matters and all incorporate my attention to detail, some see it as my hallmark.
For instance, for my dog sculptures most subjects are fashioned to the AKC "American Kennel Club" standards. In order to guarantee the canines are accurate, I get together with breeders and judges for their professional observations and understandings of the breed’s standard.
I take pleasure in sculpting scenes of a breed in a historic scenes; for example, a bull-baiting scene where a bull is posed with one of the following breeds… English Bulldog, French Bulldog or Bull Terrier. Another example is the Rhodesian Ridgebacks as they track an African Lion.
Hundreds of hours are sometimes dedicated into a wax or clay original sculpture prior to fabricating a mold for the metal castings.
Many collectors acquire and cherish my fine art sculptures for the superb concentration to detail, realism and historical accuracy.
Custom statues are a thrill for both sculptor and client; moreover, together through great communication, works of art are achieved that meet the client’s expectations and revered by the public.

How to sculpt a horse neck with clay Sculpting the horse’s neck for the Battle of Anghiari took about 2 hours. I first repositioned the neck/armature to match the pose of the horse study I was using. Once the neck looked convincing I warmed the monster clay with heat lamps. I then used brut force to bend the neck downward. The areas that where distorted where quickly corrected with additional clay. The head and neck are still semi rough and...
Modeling the horse head using monster clay The Battle of Anghiari horse clay head sculpture was sculpted using monster clay. First I took the foam skull from the equine system and decided to separate the jaw from the upper skull in order to allow me to sculpt an open mouth horse. Open mouth subjects require more time if you intend to detail the inside of the mouth, such as the teeth, tongue and mouth ceiling. Sometimes it makes the mold a bit more...
Battle of Anghiari Armature & Studies for composition Like many admirers of Leonardo da Vinci art, I too am a huge fan of his works. In 2007 while searching the internet for images of renaissance style horses I came across the drawing of “Peter Paul Ruben’s” interpretation of Leonardo’s lost fresco painting. Over the years I would occasionally conduct a search to see if anyone had attempted to create a 3D/in-the-round sculpture of this famous art work. In 2014 my...
Wax positive inspection at the Foundry Visited the art foundry to inspect the wax positive for the bronze poodle sculpture. Over all I was very pleased with the quality of the work. There are a few minor corrections. 1. Special attention will be focused on the jaw in order to ensure it will line up correctly. 2. The left paw will be revisited in order to ensure it matches the original clay specs. 3. The over all hair texture looks...
For those interested in, “how to sculpt baby bald eagles” this is the place to learn. The embedded video shows how I created the eaglet clay models. Some of the techniques used are demonstrated. My choice of clay is the Chavant NSP Hard. Due to the hardness of the clay I use a crockpot to melt my clay. A brush and spatula are used to apply the clay to the armature. In addition a hot wax carver pencil is also...
The Poodle dog sculpture is ready for the foundry, but only after the client reviews the video and approves the final sculpture. The sculpture took about 3.5 months to complete. The foundry will take another 8-12 weeks to create the molds, create the bronze casting and apply the patina. The texture on the coat took much longer than I thought it would. The first 2-3 attempts I did not care for. Finally after a good night sleep I visualized the technique...
