    The face painting process will be avalaible in an SBS article on the Vallejo Acrylics blog. I would like to say thanks to the Pegaso staff, that gave me this incredible piece through my Art Girona friends to do the article. Also, I want to say thanks to my friends Rafael Gil Garay and Jean-Luc Galliano, experts on Napoleonic Uniformas that helped me documenting the beautiful uniform of the 5th hussars regiment.

    Hope you like it!

    What a masterful painting!!!
    Fernando, this is simply spectacular! Worth to study for quite a while, I am excited by the flesh tones, the face is so beautiful and still can´t understand the smooth blending you have achieved here. The rest of the bust is also pure perfection.
    best regards,

    An absolutely perfect job, especially in the face and eyes, which have a crystalline effect. Best of all, Fernando, is that you also have your own style, and it´s unmistakable.
