Feels a bit like I am catching up on missed time while working on my MSc this year, but hey, once in a while some distraction is actually beneficial. So I bought this bust 2nd hand (had already been primed). This is my first array in depicting plate armour on this scale. The skin and clothing is done in oils, while for the metals I used a variety of metallic paints (Mr Metal colour base, highlighted with Ushi van der Rosten polishing powders - for the gold an intermediat highlight with gold oil paint). Still a work in progress, but now focussing on details. Looking forward to any comments.
