Finished Young's Roman Bust 1/9th

    Okay fellow Planeteers, I've finally finished.

    I really enjoyed this sojurn into the Roman period, despite the inaccuracies. The only thing that I have to do is attach the ties that hold the horse hair crest to the helmet, not quite sure how best to do this at the moment so until I can find something that will give the right look I'll leave well alone. (which will probably mean that I will never get around to doing it!!)

    Once agin sorry about the quality of the images and the distracting background. I am in the process of sorting out a better photographic set up and camera.

    As always comment and critique most welcome and please don't hold back from pointing out errors or things that you think I've done badly. (or else how will I be able to improve if all I get is positive comments!)







    Thanks for looking.

    Kind regards

    Tim I believe that you did a really good job on this bust. I would like more contrast on the face though, as he looks a bit flat without any deep shadows. Other than that, nicely done.

    Very good painting Tim!
    keep up

    he turned out nicely! I would agree that maybe the fleshtones need just a punch more contrast to the shadows, but over all this guy is spot-on! It looks like you went in and gave the crest just a touch more highlight, nice! I really like the choice of the purple for that. Forget the inacuracies, I like this piece and what you've done.

    Great work Tim,

    Maybe the colors look to flat by the light of the window. I think it was to hard.

    Thanks for your post, it might be due to the window light, as in real life everything does seem to have a bit more punch.

    I really must refine my photos, as well as get better at my painting!!
