    Hi Guys,

    Still looking at the dress colour not 100% about it might be the pattern needs tightening up although the blue seems to work with the blanket colour ok ?....

    then going to finish the awards off...then the flesh work going for a hardened veteran who his daughter just does not want to go away ...maybe never to come back ...an image so often acted out in all conflicts.

    All comments and suggestions welcome

    Thanks for looking in

    This thread is becoming silly.

    The silliness cant disguise the great paintwork and conversion you're doing on this pair of busts. I'm looking forward to seeing it completed.

    Hi Guys,

    Verbal update , finished dress now a lighter violet blue with pattern , base colours on flesh area's.

    Awards done on chest ..adds something extra.......

    Next port of call for the brush probably cap , then papa's flesh then his daughters (might add a few spots!!)..then her blonde hair .

    Going to leave the greatcoat and backpack to last so I can rest the bust on these area's if needed.

    Ordering the nameplate .."trying"to get this finished for the Sutton Coldfield show on the 14th..but maybe not!

    I will post pictures tomorrow.....in between painting

    Thanks for looking in

    Tell me what you want it to say and I will give you a translation.

    Папа, обещай вернуться! - Daddy, promise to return! (Without "Papa", it was Anastasiya's original working title of the bust anyway)
