    Doing this for my stepsons partner who is mad on Game of Thrones.

    All done in Vallejo and scale 75 acrylics.

    Tried the wet blending technique on this. Bit fiddly and requires practice but I like the effects you can achieve in a much shorter time and am going to continue with it. The lights a bit harsh but it's still early days.

    I wished I'd gone a bit lighter with the basecoat to make him look cold and use some blues but I'm happy enough with him.....I'll know next time.

    Also changed the way I do the eyes and went dark grey, brown, light brown. Seems the grey stops the iris being too strong.

    Del I have eventually taken on board your advice on the whites...I have tried in the past......honest.

    Going to try and wet blend the hair next then the fur. Looking forward to doing the leathers too.

    See what you think,

    Very good work so far. I'd like to do this bust justice as well, you have set the bar quite high. I think this character is deceptively hard to do well, but I like what you are doing with him.

    From another Game of Thrones-aholic.
