Hi guys, I've been rather busy lately working on other projects so I haven't been able to put much time into my painting. My latest project is a new bust from Young Miniatures depicting a Greek hoplite holding his helmet and shield. I really like this bust and the opportunity to do some crazy design work on the shield. I also like the Kurt Russell face and the potential to really make this guy look like a battle scarred veteran. So far I'm just laying down the base coat on the face, with some preliminary highlighting and shading, and defining the shape of the eyes.
