After David Mitchell painted this figure and showed us, i know it immediately. I wanted that figure and also paint it. With the help of Tommi Worton and David Mitchell i good buy this bust. The casting is great (not smooth all around) and fitting is a dream. I needed not a drop off putty. After cleaning and priming i started painting with acrylic and then turned to the oil paint. The metals are printersink with oils. So, the entire figure is as always painted in oils with a underlayer off acrylic. The colors are on my screen a little warmer then in reality. So i hope your screen is better.. Maybe i should tweaking here and there, but i cannot find a spot. So, positive comments are welcome. It was a joy to paint, and maybe i'm to proud of this one, but untill today this is my best figure I THINK .
