    Hi guys,

    Here are the final pics of my Mayan bust from the movie Apocalypto, superbly sculpted by Chun MeiZhou from Linjo Models.

    Painted in oils over acrylics.

    As always, I welcome any feedback.

    Tony really like what you have done with this bust mate, painting looks great and the photography is first rate.
    I have Apocalypto in front of me now and was thinking of watching it, after seeing your bust I will make the time to view it now.

    Not having seen the movie (yet - must skip anything with chunky red sauce, apparently)

    he looks like a dignified, commanding person of his time.

    Skills with paint brushes, a break must have been needed!!

    Cheers

    Hi Jamie, thanks for your comments mate. Yes, a break was definitely needed, and you can see the results. Pleased to see my painting skills have survived more or less intact.

    Cheers Mark, looks like the eyes have it, eh?

    Hi Scotty, thanks mate. I'll certainly bring it along for our next meeting. Thanks also for resurrecting this thread. I assumed it was dead.

    Hi John, that's a compliment I really appreciate. I always strive to achieve a realistic style, so its pleasing to have you say so.

    Hi Don, thank you very much for your comments. I appreciate you sending your comment to me.

    Hi Pedro, thanks mate. I'm pleased you think the skin tones are realistic. That's what I was aiming for.

    Hi Grant, thanks for your comments. I was pleased with the way the eyes turned out too. I used Mark Bennetes' tutorial on how to paint eyes and it worked beautifully.

    Hi Guy, I'm sure that's a very long list you have mate. These Linjo busts are superb and every bit as good as Young Miniatures in terms of quality sculpting and clean casting. As they increase the size of their range of busts, I'm sure your list wiull get even longer.

    G'day me ol' China Plate, you hit the nail on the head. A bit of a break has renewed my enthusiasm for my hobby and hopefully that shows in this bust. Thanks for taking the time to comment and I'm pleased you like my latest. I'm hoping to get started on the new Young Miniatures Roman Cavalry bust soon.
