A new 1:6 scale bust of a sailor in his rain suit, enjoying his pipe after the storm.
Face painting in acrylics...
Great sculpting as expected , so full of features , like the pipe
Again the painting is bringing him to life even more
Look forward to more on this especially the oilskins he wears
One question ...are these sculpts you do based on real seaman ?
Be great to see all of the sculpts together
Thank Kev! I'm glad you like it.
The painting is all in acrylics, as in the Fishing Boat Captain.
No real seamen; none of them. I look for faces in the internet; specially old men's faces. But the main source of ideas for the expressions is my face... I usually sculpt in front of a little mirror; so I imagine an expression, I coppy it from my face, and put the wrinckles and textures according to the pictures I get from internet...
