WIP Critique Hero of the Soviet Union, MMM

Discussion in 'vBench (Works in Progress)' started by Eludia, May 17, 2015.

    Hey again folks,

    Here is my latest WiP, one of the Heroes of the Soviet Union trio by MMM. It is a fantastic sculpt by our very own Pavol Ovecka (Offo) and has been a pleasure to paint so far. He is painted in water mixable oils over acrylic base coat. Metals are done with printers ink.

    The red star on the base is a cheapie from ebay but, after polishing, I think it came up ok (there was a much more authentic looking WW2 era star on there but I didn't fancy paying £55 for it).

    Comments and critique are most welcome, as always.

    Thanks for tuning in :)

    Thank you for your kind comments guys (y)

    I'm having some trouble deciding whether to paint the back of the bust black, like I normally do, or to leave it as it is. Mrs E says that it looks good in olive drab. What do you think?

    I look forward to see you just bust this painting.
    It's my favorite and I have not seen it in color.
    Good luck and I look forward to continuing.
