    Hello.

    Finally I found some time to paint, and started a Legend Productions bust - Korean Generalissimo Chosun Dynasty.
    The kit is very similar to one of Young's products, actually I'm not sure which one was first :)

    So, the skin is almost finished (as I can see from pictures, few minor corrections are needed). The beard is just basecoated. I didn't paint the area behind the ears, as it's gonna be covered and not visible.
    Your opinions are welcome :)
    For reference I attached a boxart photo of finished bust.

    I like it very much. I'm currently painting my first Asian. I'll echo the earlier question. Acrylics or oils?

    Skin painted in oils, rest of the model will be painted in acrylics.

    Very nice one indeed, I have the MIG Prod version on my desk, bit too long on my desk I'm afraid, but will finish soon - love your skin tones they are very lifelike.:)

    Rob, Gordy - thanks for comments :)
    Rob, you're right - the similar kit is MIG's, not Young's. My mistake. I hope you'll finish your soon :)

    Great flesh tones Simon! Looking forward to the finished piece. I also have Young's version he did for MIG. Love the armor on this one, probably why I like this piece, a real challenge!

    Simon,

    Great start on this one: excellent face.
    I particularly like the very realistic eyes. The twinkle is small and extremely lifelike!

    Cheers,

    WIP Peer Critique Korean Generalissimo 1st update

    Hallo.
    Here's an update I've been expecting for a long time:).
    Not much progress, but it's all I've got. Face and beard ready, so is the helmet (99%). The fur trimming is actually done, but I'm not happy with the result, so probably I'll try to improve it.
    And official warning ;): do not start to paint this model, unless you have a really much time for painting. Extremely time consuming.
    Cheers.

    Looking really good, I too love the flesh tones. I was going to say after your first post that the beard needed more contrast but you have updated your post and added more to the beard, looks great now. I think the fur lining looks spot on.
