Figure Sculpture!

So I've wanted to try figure sculpting for some time now but have never had both the time and the opportunity at the same time. Recently however things have come together and I'm sculpting from a real live human at the Art Students League of New York, and it's fantastic! These here are shots of my second attempt, which could use some more work, but the pose is over - on to better things.

And I was wondering if I could get some opinions on this: I like the academic work I do, and I like to share it, but it feels pretty mismatched with the general content that I have here... how do the humans that look at my business feel about it? Do you guys like the more academic "Look! I'm painting!" "Look! I'm sculpting!" is it preferable that it go by the wayside, or maybe somewhere else. Thoughts? Opinions? Irrelevant statements?

Depending on the consensus, there will be more paintings and sculptures shortly.

Oh, and just for kicks here's a couple shots of attempt No. 01 at this whole figure sculpting bit:

That's all for now.
