    Did this in about 2 hours.
    I bought the Pegaso Gladiator and wanted to try some new flesh techniques before starting him.
    This bust is incredible well cast for 120mm and as it's just flesh tones, takes no time.

    I added abit of violet to his gums to add a diffrent hue than the red.
    I base coated an acrylic mixture putting in a wee bit red to give a pinkish hue.
    I pre shaded areas light and dark and u can see where the reddy bit of the side of his temple indentations where it's caught well I think.
    Thinking back now I might've painted (On pre shaded stage) some fine blue lines on his head to simulate veins but I can try that on another piece.

    The eye area was done with acrylics and then applied a base coat of a dark mix.
    A flesh base was then applied then highlights with the basecoat plus white.
    Still need to varnish the eyes and I'm going to apply sweat droplets as well once he's dried.
    All in all he's a great piece for learning to do flesh

    Great paint job, flesh looks almost transparent, did you varnish this.

    Hi Ron,
    No mate it's still wet.
    I did apply the shadow coat and then got most of it off so the base flesh was applied extremely thinly so I guess this must seem to make it look transparent also.

    Excellent work. He sure is ugly as heck though.

    Are you going to try and keep the wet look on the skin?--looks good.

    He was still drying when I took the pics. I will try some varnish effects to see what that looks like.
    Cheers,

    After the oils dry; a very, very light coat of boiled linseed oil gives a very realistic impression of sweaty/wet skin. I've used boiled linseed oil for this effect several times, and have always been happy with the results.
