    A wonderfully detailed 1/9th scale resin bust from
    www.mitchesmilitarymodels.co.uk, mounted on a Pete's bases block.
    painting all in acrylics.

    The base colours have been blocked in and first sketches with some highlights and shading to the face only so far.

    Hope you like him.

    Excellent start to an excellent bust from MMM. When you finish, I would like to hear about your flesh color pallette since I have 3 or 4 woodland Indians to do.

    I can tell you now using Vallejo colour names...

    Base colour is Cavalry Brown and Brown Rose with a speck of green to kill some of the 'Orangeness'

    Two washes of cavalry brown and violet red for first shadows at the temples under the chin and cheek recesses.

    A touch of German camouflage brown black for the deepest shadows in the inner eye corners, inside the nostrils ears and the split of the lips.

    The stubble areas and beard area is the flesh mix plus dark Prussian Blue thinned to almost water and brushed across the area and allowed to dry and repeated to build up the tone.

    Adding basic flesh for 1st highlights.
    future highlights will be largely yellow ochre and Iraqui sand to give the yellowish tones of his flesh as in the pic above.

    Well
    ...that's the plan :D

    Hope it helps.

    Paul.

    Agree about the shaved head effect ... any idea how many washes that took ..I also stipple sometimes using a tiny bit of blending medium and the colours you used .
