Couple of Busts

Discussion in 'vBench (Works in Progress)' started by Brad S, Feb 2, 2011.

    Finished a couple of fantasy busts for fun. I was inspired by Jay Hallopeter in Atlanta last year. I had not done a bust for quite some time. So, unfortunately, I dont consider this my best work, but I still enjoyed the painting process.

    The pics are not the best, but I hope you all enjoy.

    All Types of comments will be well received.

    Thanks for looking!

    Thanks guys.

    The headress went through 6 re-do's, and even though it looks pretty good, I'm still not completely satisfied with it.

    Jay - yes, these will be in Atlanta with a flat and hopefully a little 54mm and maybe vignette that I have never taken to a show before.

    A diversified display!

    "not my best work' - consider yourself sold short, they are great ! Well done mate and enjoy the show.

    Interesting works!

    I certainly haven't thought about doing the first bust in these colours, and this style. An owner of two of these for strange reasons, I have been quite tempted to try red for one and a cow-pig cross over for another. What's on display here is quite something else!

    Rob - Thank You! I may have been looking at them to long. And know every little speck.

    Michael - I thought about red too, but quite a bit different than the box art. Then I thought blue, then albino, then yellow orange. Then I just let it flow and let it be what it is. Ended up being more of a natural color. I would still like to do another in a red, blue, albino though. Even adding some chains or other accessories to it. But I kept it simple this time.

    Thanks for your comments.

    Amazingly vibrant colors.
