    1/10 scale resin bust, my first attempt at an Andrea Miniatures figure, also my first attempt at non metallic metal on the sword (darn you Ben Komets) and second proper try at loaded brush technique for the face (Ben Komets has a lot to answer for), all painted with Vallejo acrylics and Army Painter inks, predominantly strong tone and soft tone on the Dire Wolf fur cloak.
    I hope you like him.
    Regards.

    Mick.

    Very nice work. The muted palette is very effective, just enough drama. (y)

    Very nice Mick! The NMM effect on the sword is very well done and the face is great.

    Great bust,
    Ken

    Brilliant as ever Nap and guess who's been added to the stash, love the Vallejo paint list in the tinned busts, made ordering another thirty quids worth of paint a doddle, bless Sean at SnMStuff.

    Nicely painted bust. Would have added a bit more shadow to the face to get more depth but I'm nitpicking really. There's a great video on YouTube that shows this bust being painted. Well worth a look.

    Hi John,
    I managed to get the DVD on how to paint him by Julio Cabos, will get round to watching it soon, but tried loaded brush ala Ben Komets, I made a lash up on the u boat commander trying to push the contrast so stopped this one when it looked ok.

    Hi Mick for me the face is superb. There is a tendancy to push the contrasts too far for artistic effect resulting in faces that are more fantasy than reality. Glad that your efforts were rewarded.
