    Hi guys,

    First shots of my latest project, 1/10th scale bust of Prince Hector of Troy (Eric Bana - Go Ausssie:D :D ) from the movie "Troy" by Young Miniatures.

    I've painted the base flesh colour in several thin layers of Vallejo acrylics (Flat Flesh). The eyeballs are painted Ivory and the iris Black Grey.

    I also have the companion piece, Achilles (Brad Pitt) and intend to present them together on the same base, facing each other.:cool:

    Hope you like it so far.

    Cheers

    I've spent the past 4 hours laying in the deep shadows on Hector's face and putting the finishing touches to his eyes.:rolleyes:

    Deep shadow colour is Brown Leather and Flat Flesh. Mid shadow is Medium Flesh.

    Thanks Mark,

    I'll be doing the facial highlights and the mouth area tonight and hopefully the face will "pop" some more. I'll post some more pics later this evening.

    Hi Mark & Marc,

    Thanks for your comments guys. Hector's coming along nicely.

    Mark, I did a bust of Mel Gibson as Braveheart (pics attached) many years ago. That must be the Aussie movie-hero trifecta!!:D

    Cheers

    Hi guys,

    I've now done the mid highlights and added some red skin tones.

    Still some blending to be done.

    Highlight colour is Flat Flesh mixed with Basic Skintone.

    Upper highlights still to be done.

    Cheers
