Oils CHE GUEVARA - HISTORIA Miniatures (completed)

    Hello to all PF members.

    I would like to present my new and second attempt in oils, this beautiful bust of Che Guevara, from Historia Miniatures. The sheen on the jacket is because it is still not completely dry and I keep putting him in and out of the drying box in order to avoid excessive heat since after all it is made of resin.

    I have posted a small SBS in the WBench area of PF if anyone is interested in seeing how it progressed (http://www.planetfigure.com/threads/che-guevara-from-historia-miniatures.55943/).

    From the begining I wanted a black and white version with blue-ish and green-ish colors only for the hat and jacket, and red for the star. The cigar is brown-ish with a couple of red/orange/mutated yellow spots for sparks to keep balance with the star.

    Hope you like this version, all comments are welcome.
    Thank you for your time...

    Very nice work.
    I think you can leave the bust in the drying box for 8 hours. I have no problems so far with resin in the drying box.

    The painting is of the highest quality but I am sorry to say the combination of Black and white and colour does not work for me. One or the other.
