    18 months away from brushes, and you can produce a work of art as such as this. Wow.
    I think I'll give up.;)

    >Bob,
    Thanks a lot for your comment! :)

    >Marc,
    To tell the truth I was really disgusted with my painting 18 moths ago. Really.
    So I decided to take a long break, completely away from brushes, and I've been focused on sculpting while I'm away.

    I read a book about the fine art method which is called "Learn painting without paintbrushes", a Japanese art book which teaches the theory of learning curve difference between artwork and sports. Art learning curve is not as same as sports, practicing over and over every day does not always bring you a good result.
    It tells that if you want to paint a good fish, you'd better go fishing and slice it, learn anatomy of the fish, and then watch fish in aquarium. Then go back to the canvas you will find you are better at painting fish.

    So I stopped painting, learn sculpting and anatomy.
    It helped me refresh to back to my brush again. :)

    ask40000,
    Answer #1) My real name is Kazufumi Tomori, but I prefer to use my shorted name Kaz Tomori, which is easier to pronounce and remember. :)
    Answer #2) I mixed field grey from Carbon Black, Warm White, Ultramarine Blue, Cadmium Yellow. I changed the mixing ratio and lastly I stippling small dots over highlight area.

    Alex,
    Thank you very much for your warm compliments, Alex! :)

    You'd never tell, to look at that masterful painting! Not even a little rusty!
    Really superb work, Kaz. Glad to see you're back painting again (y)

    Amazing result! The helmet decals were usually painted over - especially the decal with the national emblem was completely removed earlier due to high visibility. I understand that it gives the artist a chance to add som color and interest to the helmet.;)
    Congratulations to this outstanding bust - as a sculptor and painter(y)!
    Cheers, Martin

    > Nick,
    Thanks a lot for your comment. Yes, I'm glad I can have a feeling of "painting is fun!" again.

    > Martin,
    Yes you're right, decals are usually hidden, painted over.... but as you said, I want 'colours' as an eye catch. :)

    Magnificent, to have sculpted it then painted it to such a high standard, what can one say, but amazing.

    > Mike,
    Thanks a lot for your compliments, Mike! Yes this is one of my digital sculpts with ZBrush. I'm thinking maybe Digital sculpting + Hand painting is my way to go.

    > Chris,
    Thanks a lot for your nice comment, Chris! :) I'm not satisfied with my skill but I broke the wall I was struggling against for a long time.

    > Jason,
    Thanks a lot, Jason. I tried stippling technique which Jason Zhou and Krill Kaneav are doing recently. It's very time consuming technique, but I think it brings a good result.

    > Gellso,
    I spent a lot of time on painting flesh tone, so it's great to hear such a comment. Thanks!
