    Excellent sculpt and paint. Note to all:its the artist not the tool (refering to digitial vs old school) just because you can work with a computer program doesn't mean you are an artist. Really well done Kaz :)

    > John,
    Thank you very much for your compliments! It's a great honour to have such a comment from the artist I admire, I still learn from your sculpted works (Maybe I owned almost all of them :)).
    I agree with you about digital vs old school thing. I read an article that some of your 1/35 US figures for PMC Miniatures are done by digital (If I'm not wrong) but I can see your touch in them, no difference between digi or old school.

    > ask40000,
    In Kanji, Yes :)

    > Ski,
    Thanks a lot, Ski! Painting skill is not rely on physical ability like sports so as long as you have concern with painting and keep brushing it up in brain all the time it won't get rusted, in my opinion. :)
  6. A few things to add to what has already been said about this fantastic piece.

    • The helmet is very realistic, from the washed out look to the chipping and rust
    • Rifle wood grain very believable.
    • And of course the flesh and facial expressions.
    I imagine it took you some time to complete? Such great, great talent you have!

    Brilliant work, Kaz! You have accurately captured the feeling of a tired solider in cold winter atmosphere through your realistic painting. Looking forward to seeing more sculpts and paintings from you in the future.

    > Larry,
    Thanks you very much for detailed comment, I like that.
    Answer to your question is yes, it took more time than I usually spend on painting one bust.

    > Jason,
    Thanks a lot for your compliments, and I must give you special thanks. :) I strongly inspired and motivated by your face painting of SS tanker bust which is posted on FB.
    Of course I cannot paint the skin like you, but I tried your 'stippling dots' method for the first time. It makes me very irritated first, but it gave me a good result.

    That's pretty fantastic Kaz! The face looks very realistic. Your time investment paid off!

    Recognize what you say about learning art vs e.g. Sports. Art is in the mind. Practice is needed to understand tools and materials, but the mind is needed to make it look great, rather than just 'skillful'. This bust of yours certainly is great.

    The overall painting is fantastic, but the face captivates the eye totally.

    > Adrian,
    Thank you very much for your comment, and yes I agree with you art is in the mind, of course practice needed to use materials and tools freely but mind is more important IMHO.

    > Andrew,
    Thanks a lot I tried to put my soul into it. :)
