Hi Guys just finished this bust , a very enjoyable experence.
For once I am FIRST I hope anyway
Dave you have created a gem IMHO
Great to see it finished Davie and I think the cloak looks great and the design on the edging stands out.
I agree with Ray "Its a gem"
Beautiful work. Agree with Don the colour and tone of of the cloak is perfect.
The whole piece is a beauty but the eyes... WOW!!
Indeed it's the perfect finish at Great.
The fresh tone and the metal tone are very excellent.
The gradation of a surcoat is also very smooth.
Indeed a professional work.
I congratulate completion.
Very nice work David! The colors are great, the eyes are fantastic and this has always been one of my favorite helmets! Well done!
Thanks Ray,Don,Derek,Roger,Mitsutaka and Jay its always nice to get positive feedback glad you all like it.Now its onto something new.
Fantastic work David, congrats.
Please explain steps for the helmet.
Thanks Christos and Paulo for your kind words.The helmet was finished with a mix of acrlylics from Games workshop&Vallejo. First Gunmetal was applied and while still wet small amounts of Gunmetal blue was dropped in.The gold parts were started with Tin bitz and then Shining & Burnished gold.I then done some shading with various shades of brown and black oil paints, final highlights with gold printers ink.Hope this is of some help Paulo.
