Yeah know Oz to me it doesn't. But i've never seen a rusty head sculpture before.
Put it on something that is more likely to have rusty metal on it like a metal beam or something.
That should help me judge it better.

But hell its a good material.
Ill check back in a bit.

Love your work Oz. Big fan.

No to me it looks like dry paint of various colors. And it depends what you are going for too. Some srtucture under the see would have rust in a different way than rust on a car. All I can say is look at more reference pictures:)

Well...I think the problem for me is that there is green in it. This suggests that the surface is copper, but then you have red/orange in there, which only happens with iron. I think the pattern is amazing, just tweak the colors!

i may be no expert, but to me the bump mapping seems to regular and uniform, perhaps a greater diference in the size range of the bumps would give mor realism.

and i agree with the copper/iron colour comment.
