Kirin- 150mm Celt

    I've had this on the bench for a year or more. Finally got around to finishing it. It was one of the hardest figures I had ever finished. Of course its not perfect and I could do some more corrections to it, but at some point you have to just go on. I did add some extras such as getting rid of the helmet side shields and sculpting in some hair, tears in the shield and knee, groundwork, new blade on sword. One of the hardest problems was his torso. Even though this is a finely sculpted and casted figure, the torso must have slipped in the mold or something. I had major sanding around the ribcage on both sides.

    Anyway, i hope you enjoy. All comments/ critiques, good and bad are welcome.

    Great job, Brad! I couldn't tell that you had problems with his torso - he looks perfect to me! Love your flesh tones and the tats are really cool. It's an excellent figure - thanks for sharing!

    Excellent work on all the different patterns. The complexity really adds to this figure, Brad. The blue contrast on the flesh is pretty cool.

    You work in oils, right?

    In my humble opinion, you've brought it to life.

    Everyone - Thank you for your replies.

    Sharpie - Tartan lines. Very, very slowly. I use acrylic paint so I let each color dry completely (1 day) and I use a flow medium added to the paint so it wont dry to fast, and I can erase paint kind of like oils. Sometimes, if I like what I have at certain points, I will seal with a flat of satin to help protect what is done.

    Keith - believe it or not I used acrylics. I use mostly Vallejo, but dont limit myself to just that brand. I also use Andrea, Ceramcoat, Liquitex, Jo Sonja, Polly Scale, Gunze, and some various watercolors.

    Hello Brad,

    Your hard work to finish this project was worth every bit of it. You did an extremely fine job on this figure bearing in mind its scale :eek: . Very lifelike face. I also love the colour of the tattoos.

    Best regards

    Johan ;)
