Baron von Münchhausen

    A merry Christmas to all of you all over the world.
    Just in time with Santa’s presents, I more or less finished my work on my latest project. It’s Baron von Münchhausen from Fan Art Models in 1/9 scale. A cute bust of great quality and with a lot to offer for any painter. I tried some new things, e.g. I wanted to give his coat some texture without getting overboard with it. Maybe the result is too subtle.

    With no uniform color chart to follow, this bust gives you total freedom with regard to your color choice and I was very happy with that.

    Hope you like it and again, Merry Christmas to all of yo from Berlin.

    Excellent work, Sven - I like what you’ve done with the highlights & shading on the scarlet coat, & the pinstripes on the waistcoat look superb, very precise. Well done & thanks for sharing here.

    Nicely done! The Baron is a favorite subject of mine (as shown by my avatar), and you did an excellent job on this bust. Someone else pointed out your pinstriping on his vest, and I agree, I'm impressed with your results.

    Regarding the color of his coat, it's true that traditional depictions put him in a Prussian blue Rock. But Terry Gilliam dressed his Baron in a red coat, and I've always wondered if that wasn't a reference to the real Baron, who was in the Russian service in the 1740s and served in a cuirassier regiment. If I'm not mistaken, the Galarock of that regiment was red. But the red coat looks cool, whatever the reason.

    Again, well done!
