Hello friends! It's been long ago since I painted something. I am more into sculpting but sometimes I have a sudden necessity to change a bit my usual work Last weekend I was invited for a short sculpting masterclass at Lviv Scale Model Fest and I took all my grey army out of the boxes. Among them was Athena, a bust sculpted by me a year ago for Alexandros Models. I remember starting painting the metals and whites but after I abandoned her because of the huge amount of sculpting work. This time in this wonderful season I felt the necessity to paint her! So here we go! I attach first two photos (sorry for the quality...still can't manage the settings of the phone in order to show the real result, in a picture she is a bit more pale than in reality) I seen some really wonderful versions of her, some were more fantasy and some more classical. Some artists painted her as if she was transforming from the bronze statue into a Goddess In my case I decided to paint her in more classical version. I am working on the pale skin tones and transparency of the chiton. Nevertheless I want Aegis to look more fantastic, not as a simple metal. Lots of work ahead but I hope this bust will turn out nice! Thanks for watching! All comments and tips are welcome!
