    Well many moons ago I posted this pic of Elite's Highlander bust:

    I've actually managed to finish him now, so here he is!
    (I may try different backgrounds in the future...........)

    In summary; the brow, crows feet and bags around the eyes were reculpted with magic sculp, and the beard added with kneadatite. Also, I used Mr Surfacer on the bonnet to add a rough wollen look.

    painted with acrylics, except for the belt (oils) and bonnet (enamels) and brooch (graphite pencil).

    Some of you saw him at the Expo, but please, constructive criticisms welcomed and positively encouraged!

    oh, and pimping for Coolmini votes HERE

    Awesome work Rob..........all good things are worth waiting for. You have done a super job with this bust and I can not see anything wrong in what you've done........sculpting or painting.

    now....off to cool mini.....lol

    All I can say is WOW! Wish I could see this in person.

    Even has chest hair!

    I will make one minor critique (and it may be the photo as the light is shining directly on the eye) in the first painted bust pic his right pupil seems a bit cross eyed. Pointed in to the nose? Does that make sense? :eek:

    You got my "10" vote on CoolMini (y)

Now when can I see this one in the flesh? I really need to make it across the pond one of these days if nothing else, just to see you and Frank ;) .

    Hi Rob
    You'v done a brilliant job on this bust and the face is outstanding.If i had to criticise anything about the figure I reckon his shirt is a bit too white but believe me thats a minor point.Hope your going to Euro as i'd love to see him in the flesh
