    Hi Guys

    Just started this one this morning and what a bust this is, the casting and sculpting are exceptional, all I can say is, buy it and give it a go.

    Please let me know what you think

    Man Dave, that's enough work to last me at least a week. Nice looking fleshtones though. Very subtle color transition lines. Please tell me you did this with an airbrush?!

    Looking forward to the rest,
    Jim Patrick

    Hi Jim

    Yes I did this with an airbrush, using acrylics things can take a little less time.... :)

    Hi Ross

    NO, I can say hand on heart that Rob Hendon has not turned me to the dark side, to be honest this kind of bust, needs to be done with an airbrush. But it does give a good base for the finish work to be done with a brush

    Hi Callum

    Yes I should be doing the Ashigaru, but I needed to do someting slightly different, as Roy said the dragonflies were getting to me. And of course I had a really stress filled week at work, so needed a day painting to relax me completely and this was the result...

    Thanks for the comments

    Okay, Dave, you just made my jaw drop. And it's bruised from hitting the floor. Fantastic airbrush job! I prepped this figure for painting a while ago and I've been wondering how to attack it properly. Of course, now that I've seen your absolutely amazing work - I'm scared!!! It's just so good!!!

    Please post pics of the finished figure when you're done - my jaw should be ready for another drop by then!! :)

    Hi Callum

    I use the Deville Bis Aerograph 63 with an A body, its dual action, its about 35years old, and you can spray down to about 0.35mm line thickness, you can spray using very low pressure as well, as it is gravity fed and not suction fed. Its a lovely airbrush, one of my prize modelling tools, luckily you can still get all parts for it, there is a new version on the market, the Aerograph 93. And both parts and new versions are available from Bell Creative.

    http://www.bellcreative.co.uk/aerograph_ai...es_contents.htm

    Hope this helps.... its worth buying a decent airbrush, the best you can afford...

    Looking great Dave (y)

    I can't believe you only started this
    a day or so ago.

    I'd still be working out what
    colours to use.
