    I dedicate this figure to all my Greek friends around the world.
    Ancient Greek Civilization was the light of the world.

    Guy,Georges, Marc,Virgilius,Pat,Theodores,Jon,Matthew,Thanos,Jay, Roberto,and John thank you my friends your kind words is very appreciated.

    John, this is how I painted the breastplate.
    1- Undercoat= acrylic brown with some dark green mixed into it.
    2- Base = Liquitex irridecent bronze with a little dark brown and dark green
    mixed into it.
    3- Medium shadows = Base + more brown and a littlle more green mixed into
    it.
    4- Beep shadows = Medium shadows + more brown.
    5- medium highlights = irredecent bronze.
    6 - high highlights = medium highlights + a little golld powder mixed into it.
    7- Extreme highlights = A glaze of gold powder mixed with Liquin.

    Cheers

    I like it too. The light blue is well done. Makes for a nice change from the darker colors often seen on these types...:)

    Thanks Ray, I appreciate you looking.
    Nice sculpture, but as you can see from your casting the torso is hollow and comes in two pieces, definite draw back for me.
