    Here are some pictures of a Murmillo Gladiator bust the I converted and painted a few months ago. The red version is entirely painted in oils and printers inks, the blue is entirely acrylics.

    Except for the colour of the shield, you can hardly tell them apart despite the two different mediums. Congrats to you for mastering both oils and acrylics. Do you find one easier than the other?????

    Thanks Ben. I don't really find one medium easier than the other, they're just different techniques. What I do find is that I prefer some colours in oils to those in acrylic and vice versa, red and blue being the main two. I tend to paint a lot of my figures now using multiple mediums to try and utilise their properties and my technique to the best effect.

    Greetings Alex:

    Oh my gosh, what a talented artist you are. Lovely and
    very atmospheric photos too. The name plates is just
    right for these two beautiful busts. I particularly am
    impressed with the bronze "coloured" helmet. Outstanding,
