    Hello Everybody...

    Finally got a chance to finish this wonderful iconic 200mm Spartan Hoplite bust from El Greco. What can I say? It's a classic, I absolutely loved painting inch of it, and hopefully I've done it justice :).

    There is a pretty detailed SBS on how I painted the skin tones and face over here.

    Thanks for taking a look,
    Phil
