    Hi friends,
    It has been a long time since I posted my last work. Finaly after a 9-months of painting crisis when I ruined whqt I have touched, I give you a wonderful Young´s bust of Athenian Warlord. I was very much impressed by the boxart made by Sang Eon Lee, so I adopted his colour scheme. I would be very thankful for every comment, so feel free to do so:)

    Hi Robert,

    Great to see you back in action & on this bust which I you admired so much.
    Beautiful work especially those flesh tones. Front quilting is a bit bright & harsh perhaps a light shading\dusty wash may help tone this down - mix of Yellow Ochre & Raw Umber.

    Hope to see you back on MedRom too :)

    Thanks for sharing,

    Mike

    Very well painted. I love soldiers who look battleworn. The armour looks well used and the skin tones look brilliant.
    A great level of painting skill.

    This matches or could even be a bit better than the impressive box art that comes with the kit. Awesome work.

    Thanks everybody for a highly positive feedback. It fulfils me with new energy. Hope I will bring more figures to you in the future, as the time allows.

    to Mike: thanks for the tip, in fact I was quite struggling with this front quilting, I was overdoing this three times, it was a nightmare:) the wash with raw umber is already in there, but parheaps as you said I could add gold ochre in it, it would have better, sandy look.
