Well boys and girls, I haven't posted any work for months - so here it is! I have 3 projects in the works right now and this is the first one to finish. This is the long-gone Warriors Billy the Kid bust. Sculpted by Kent Kidwell in 200mm. I picked this up from a friend of mine a year or so back for a song, and to be honest, after looking at the box art I was a bit scared. The piece itself looked nice but there was something about it I didn't quite like. Once I figured out he looked a bit dorky with his hat on, I decided to do a tiny bit of modification. I added the hat strap in lead foil and decided to have his hat hanging behind him on his back. The hair was already sculpted with detail luckily, so it was an easy conversion and really added to his over all depth and look I thought. Oils over acrylic as usual. I am really suprised at how much this guy starts to look like the one "confirmed" picture of Billy once the paint gets on him! A good likeness after all is said and done. A really fun piece to paint. Kinda gets me in the mood for more Westrn subjects. Thanks for looking, any and all comments and critiques are welcomed! Jay H. OKC I couldn't resist having a little fun with Photoshop!!!!!!!
