Primed and ready for paint. Can’t wait to get started.
Looking forward to seeing your take on this one Tony.
It’s a lovely piece Tony
I shall be watching with interest Tony.
I hope you enjoy him as much as I did.
Thanks gents, laid down some base coats of flesh tones tonight. Focussing on smooth blending.
Geoff, your bust was what inspired me to get this one. It’s a beauty.
Lovely flesh tones so far Tony.
Very nice flesh tones Tony, I take it that you are using acrylics.
Many thanks for mentioning me and I know you will do justice to this lovely piece.
I shall be picking up the Grieve Blues and Royals bust at the weekend while at Bugle Call, so really looking forward to painting that one.
Keep up the good work
Ooooh this is such a great sculpt ..a classic and a must IMO for all bust modellers !!
You will do a cracking job on this
Following with interest ..especially the tartan...and medals !
Thanks for sharing
Thanks for your comments chaps. I’m about to start the next stage of painting the flesh tones which involves the stippling of thousands of tiny colour dots. Looking forward to doing this, as I just zone out listening to music. Sometimes I can start painting at 10pm and still be going at it when the sun comes up the next morning.
Enjoy the stippling ...plenty of liquid refreshment ..
Look forward to updates
Following your progress with this one Tony.
Nice progress Tony.
Nice bust, coming along nicely......
I have been watching a lot in the wings lately.
But hopefully this is changing back to sticking my two penth in.
This is turning out to be a stunning piece of work, Tony - the man's face is full of character.
Wow! I can see the purpose of all the pointillism dots now Tony, you’ve replicated the slight orange peel texture of adult skin perfectly.
Lovely work Tony, it looks impressive even just in primer. This looks like it’s going to be a belter mate.
