    Hi all , its been a long time since painting anything due to work load and a new baby on the scene :sleep: Any way after a trip to Euro I was re inspired and got to work on this Alexandros Models bust of Vasily ( Jude ) .
    Painted in Life colour acrylics with a lot of air brushing .
    I've seen some improvement to be made to the left hand already.
    Thanks for looking critique away

    Hi Sam, Very interesting techniques used on this figure and from looking at your website it seems to be a departure from your usual painting style?. In my opinion the mix of colours and the way you have applied them captures the grime and dirt of war superbly.

    Hi Keith , thanks for commenting , yeah I used a retarder in with the paint it helped give me more working time so I move the paint around more plus I air brushed the shadows on before hand giving figure more depth .
    Thanks sam
