First take on a bust: Dwarf Bust

    Hello! This is a 3d printed bust that's ~80mm tall.
    I approached my first bust with the explicit objective of exploring the natural shapes - specially on the face - and work a passable white skin tone while having a more sketchy style, without bothering much with soft transitions. Of course that means brush strokes should be harmonic and not detract from the whole.
    I am aware the NMM gold is quite half-assed.

    Other than the uploaded files you can see a bunch extra suff on this album:

    There's also a short clip of the bust being moved around here:

    Hi Lucas

    Big welcome to PF

    This looks good , you've achieved your aim for sure

    What flesh mixes are you using ?

    As for NMM , looks okay to me ...what mix did you use for that ?

    Thanks for sharing

    Why not enter something into FOTM as well as voting in the previous month

    Happy benchtime

    Thanks for the welcome and the kind words, Nap!
    I'll surf around the forum and check FOTM!

    The flesh was done using the Skin set from Scale Artist + some FW/Liquitex inks (mainly for adding colors to shadows) + some weird brown mix I had in my wet palette
    The gold was done with the same weird brown mix as a base color + vallejo's heavy gold brown + offwhite + white ink, mixed in different proportions.
