    Wow Guys!!

    Thanks for all the comments! I am very flattered!


    Im not sure excactly how long the whole bust took to paint, In day's it took about 4 days of painting. The face took little over an hour, I know this as I was chatting with my good friend Costas (Maj. Goose) at same time, as for the rest I am not sure, maybe a total of about 10-12 hours of effective painting.


    It really isnt all that complicated, just break it down and paint it in a logical order, then it will seam like a breeze. If it offers you any help, here is how I painted it; eyes, face, red studded part, shirt, beadwork, white thingies, horns and last the feathers.

    The feathers were pretty daunting at first, but in reality, they were some of the quickest parts of this bust to paint. The only thing I really wasnt sure about was the round thing on his chest, there are endless possibilities to paint this one up and they all have to match. The color decisions and hoping you made the right one is pretty tough and I just started painting and before I knew it it all came together. It isn't quite as colorful as I would have liked to paint it, but I tried to stick with the more traditional and "authentic" look, wether or not I managed this I don't know, you tell me!


    It is all in the dillution ratios, after you apply your initial high's add some midtones made from the previous colors to soften the borders up, then just continue to build the paint up in thin layers until it is has smooth transitions, then do the same with the shadows.


    Yeah I will, are we meeting on Tuesday or Wednesday next week?

    Thanks again guys! I really appreciate your comments!

    Thanks again guys!


    Ahaha like I am the one on the dark side!


    The mix I used for buckskins was something like this:


    Base: 856 Ochre Brown + 875 or 876 ( Beige Brown, Brown Sand) and a tad of 837 Light Sand.

    Highlights: Base + more light sand.

    Shadows: Base + 875 Beige Brown and deep shadows with black added.

    btw, How was your vaccation?
