    Hi all,
    Here are my attempts at these two beautiful 1/9 Busts from Evil-miniatures. Mainly in oils.

    I have almost finished the flesh tones on Drogo but everything else has just been base coated. The only change I have done to him is I repositioned his nipples as they were too close together originally. IMG_6195.JPG IMG_6196.JPG IMG_6197.JPG

    And now Daenerys, Her flesh tones are almost done, I think they need a bit more but not sure where, she is supposed to be quite fair. Her leathers have had the first round of oils and her hair is just base coated until I start on the platinum blond look. I did thin out here neck as the original was too manly looking, it will also be half hidden by a collar section of the leather bodice IMG_6198.JPG IMG_6200.JPG IMG_6201.JPG

    Hi there ,

    Very nice tones on the flesh like the chest hair and the menacing eyes

    If anything I would put a little more shadow where the beard will meet the cheek area and also run a wash of red into the corners of the eyes

    ...whats the other bust like as I can only see 1 at the moment !!...I see her now ...must be more patient!!!!

    Thanks for sharing

    Hi Again ,

    Nice set of busts you are working on ...like the young lady , as for the flesh I think it needs more work in the cheek area /shadows etc , I would define the lips more.

    The leather is going to look good , I watch with interest how you deal with the hair colour .

    Thanks for sharing again

    Off to a great start, Ben. I see what you mean about the sculpting and braiding on Daenerys' hair, they're both nice sculpts.
    Keep the progress pics coming, mate.
    Cheers

    They look Ben!! I think the skin tones of Drogo are great! Daeneys I think it's good,
    maybe a touch in some place or another needed.
    But you are doing great!

    Regards

    Great skin tones on both figures. Viewing through the thumbnails on the main menu, this even stood out and attracted me into the thread. You got good depth on the leather as well. :wideyed:

    HI Nap,
    Thanks for the tips, I definately think you are right about the eyes, and I will be doing it. You are probably also right about the cheecks, but I will finish off his beard/hair first and see how it looks.
    Yeah, I think she needs to be a shade darker in some areas. Trying to keep in line with the TV series where she is made up to look quite natural with no lipstick or makeup, even though she definately is.
    Thanks for looking
