    Took a break from painting Caster and started this little fellow from Alexandros Models.
    I liked this one from the moment i saw it here at the planet, although i can see some peoples' view about it being a bit fantasy (well he actually looks like a body builder with tits). The kit comes with the helmet and half of the face. So i sculpted the head (warning first time trying to sculpt anything), with some advice from my good friend Chris Panagiotopoulos, and then i thought about taking it a step further and painting the head bold. Alot of work to be done on this one but i think you get the idea. Criticism always welcomed.
    Regards

    freaking fantastic work. I'll be watching this one progress as I have my eye on this figure also. Did you sculpt the face also?

    Thank you all for your comments. I m really glad you like this one, cause i really have my worries.
    Mike my friend, the kit comes with the face cut just above the eyebrows. It s a fantastic face to be concealed under the helmet IMO. But you can still attache the helmet without the front face part and have the face visible.

    Yeah it looks like a great face that would be a shame to cover with the helmet. Great job on the reconstruction of the head.

    Dimitrios, I have to say your tricks of highlight and shading are absolutely glorious. If this results in painted subjects looking a touch too 'Arnold', so be it. Rich depth and wide range of tones are always celebrated in this hobby and other visual art.

    Since this very kit depicts a muscular person, this painting style pays off in every way. In fact, the frontal view of the torso is so well rendered it almost matches state-of-the-art computer graphics that populate Hollywood productions.

    Finally, look fwd to learning more about the 'Morning Star' project.

    Dimitrios, what a wonderful start on this fine figure! I think, that the flesh tones are like always a high class, but the face and head is wonderful and much needed inspiration for me. Looking forward for more pictures:)
