    Hi guy's, hope all are well this new year. Here is my start on John Belchers Sergeant-155 Pennsylvania Inf. Regt. 1864. I have gone with a ginger haired guy just to try and have a different aspect to John's box art version, still much to do. cheers Les

    Nice so far mate, I guess you have still to put in the contrasts, fair skinned tones can be tricky.

    Rob, Marc and Tony. Thanks for your feedback. Rob have a little more to do on face but as a fair skinned person wont go too far, to be honest the pics dont show up tones that well on this fig. cheers Les

    Hi Pete an John, thanks for your comments, John although this bust is taking too long I have really enjoyed it, by going for ginger hair it had its own problems, as a very fair complexion was needed. cheers Les

    Hi guy's, well I'm calling this bust finished, unless there are some obvious changes needed. I found this to be a difficult paint because of the colours, so used to drab military uniforms. comments welcome.
