    Dave well done, some very worthwhile additions to this beautiful bust...it looks great, but even better yesterday in the flesh..

    I really like the effect on the hat, and the eyes are impressive, considering you were unfortunate enough to have a little damage to one of them...the red on the jacket is also stunning in the flesh..not as good on my screen though (and I have that new monitor)..

    Keep those conversions coming mate...you're on a roll.

    All the best..Roy.

    Hi Dave,

    Your bust brings back memories to me of the old black and white movie of 'Captain Blood, starring Errol Flynn. I loved this film very much when I was a youngster.

    Great work !

    Dave,
    this guy turned out fantastic. I really like your idea for the conversion. This was an inspired piece. I have a couple sugestions, and I certianly don't want to take away from the piece but I just have a couple passing thoughts. I think the lace of the collar and the feather look like they could use a light wash of a darker color for a bit more contrast, though it could be the photos. I think the red on the main shirt is FANTASTIC! The eyes are also outstanding! I think he could stand to have some eye-brows added. It also looks like he might need some darker shadow tones under the nose and in the nostrils. This could also be the andgle of the photo though. Over all this turned out great! You are fast to boot! Thanks for sharing!

    Looking good Dave, you always seem to get a warm tone to your reds ( something I always struggle with) , he has a slight resemblance to Gerard Depardieu in Cyrano de Bergerac. Brilliant work mate keep it coming.

    Hi Guys

    Thanks a lot for the comments, they are very much appreciated, as I felt a little disheartened when I started painting this one, as that is the result of the fourth time I had painted the face.
    Obviously its not quite finished as of yet...

    This is only my second conversion, so I am glad you guys think, I havent done too bad. I can see little bits I would do again if I had the chance, but why run before you can walk.

    Hi Jay, thanks mate for the critique and the comments, Always welcome. I can see what you mean, it is partly down to photography, I am not a very good photographer. But I need to finish a lot more of the figure as of yet, you are right about the collar and the feather, feather especially as that is just primer as you see it. Also the hair needs to be finished and as you said the eyebrows added, So I hope to do that this weekend. I will post finished images when it is done.... :)

    Thanks again guys

    Dave this one looks super from where I am sitting. Certainly looks as if the conversion bug has well and truely bitten you on the jacksy!
    Look forward to seeing what you consider will be the finished version. I especially like the way all the colours used really compliment each other. Yoe certainly have a keen eye for that sort of thing mate, well done again.

    Dave,
    Aren't my cheeks red! I see you have things well in hand. I thought you were a bit further along than you really are. Sorry 'bout the pre-mature commnets there! I'm sure you will top this one off!

    Hi Jay

    Dont say sorry, you rightly pointed out a few things that I hadn’t pointed out myself at the beginning, so there isn’t a problem, I hope...... :)
