    Hi Guys ,
    Here is a EVD bust that has been floating around my bench for a while , my mate Jimbo extended the torso slightly .

    Mainly an exercise in Blues and NMM but looking back I did enjoy the painting ....

    If I was to do it again I would put a medal on him !!!!

    Painted using Acrylics and Water soluable Oils


    Still a few final things to do , the epaulette and buttons are NMM( and look better in real life ....sort of!!!) , this was going to be a SBS but moving house got in the way !!!!

    Waiting a suitable base and nameplate as well !!!!

    Thanks for looking all comments welcome(y) or :thumb down: :D

    Very nice work Kevin.
    Did you paint the epaulette with non metalic paint???
    As you write before. a SBS with that technique will be very welcome.

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for all the comments the pictures do not show the NMM up as good as I wanted ..too much light/flash will try and do some more

    Marc ,
    NMM I am still learning but I will try and do a SBS , it is very satisfying when it works !!!

    Carl ,
    I would welcome your comments at BC ..look forward to seeing your great work as well

    Hi Kevin,

    Great job mate. Lovely colours on the uniform. I think the mouth could do with some shading between the lips to help define them a bit better.
