    Good morning Sergey!

    I so enjoy following your work! The eyes are excellent and the weathering gives the piece a great sense of reality!

    The treatment for the steel, making it look so realistic, is the true secret of this piece though IMHO. This is how I would like the steel on my Border Reiver bust to look (or at least an approximation of that, lol). Would you mind giving us a bit of an idea of how you accomplished it?

    Very nice piece!!

    Thanks for the feedback friends!

    Kevin. Metal - acrylic base. Then painted with oil paints - black and Mars. I worked semi-dry brush butting. To create a mottled texture and smoky.

    Sergey, this is an amazing painting and I REALLY love your metal rendering.
    What color do you use for acrylic base?

    Great bust, having a choice of helmet is a terrific bonus and of course that's excellent painting as well, Sergey.

    I like this one. The medevial Swiss are a heavily unterrepresented species and this guy can easily pass as one of "my" forefathers.

    Although I'm not a bust fan I'm tempted to get this one.
