Here is the latest work from my bench.. Young Miniatures B-17 crewman. Thanks for looking....
Hi there Matt
Very nice work , like this bust the back offers a great chance to get some great designs done as seen in your version
Thanks for sharing
Fantastic work on the skin tones and leathers.
Superb, I especialy love the leather and how you've got all the letters on the back to look so uniform. Congrats!
Matt your painting on this one has captured all the different textures to produce a very convincing miniature and the way in which you have detailed the back of the jacket looks great where you can see traces of the brown leather showing through the bombs and lettering to obtain a worn look.
A pleasure to look at.
A stunning piece, like Terry said the back of the jacket has a typical worn look with the leather showing through.
A spot on look, congrats sir.
Excellent! Could you discuss how you achieved that worn leather look?
All the best,
First class Mate, awesome.
Fantastic - wonderful job
Wow, that is some awesome looking work! One of the most realistic looking bust ever!
Love the texture, color, detail. Man, this is definitely one to study!
Thanks for Sharing!

great painting excellent job
Great piece of work matt
Excellent and the leather is wonderful.
Beautifully painted Matt. s others have said the leather jacket is a stand out, and you've managed to achieve some very realistic effects to make the leather look worn. The only constructive criticism I would make is that I think the lambs wool lining of the jacket could do with a wash of English Uniform or Raw Sienna, to really capture the texture of the wool and to break up the monotone colour of the wool. Please feel free to ignore my comment if you're happy with the bust and don't agree with me.
Gteat work Matt.
superb work matt
Great painting all round . Like it .
I'll try to explain- Base coat of Black and burnt umber, very thin. Then another coat (thin) of same. Then washes of black and spots of raw seinna and other lighter browns. But I tried to keep the dark blackish brown base. I used some Vallejo colors to break up the color a bit. The sleeves of the jacket had more raw sienna, orange brown and flat earth.
Tony, the fur doesn't photograph well. It tends to over expose. In person there is more definition to the fur. I appreciate your comments.
