    Another bust, also in 1:6 scale, and of course, a boat captain... in this case, a fishing boat captain.

    Thanks Kev; I really appreciate your oppinion and permanent support.

    Painting is a process that I like, but an actual pain in the "low part of my back" for me... I've tried a lot of techniques, but I've never reached a convincing result for me, so I generally use a combination of different techniques.

    First I use the Vallejo Face Painting Set, following the order in the Life Miniatures Painting Tutorial of the "Desert Fox", but not to the letter... then, I apply different filters or washes for the beard, cheekbones, nose and eyes socket, with acrylics very diluited, and controlling the borders.

    ... and here's the cap as it goes up to the moment.
