    I am squeezing this bust in with some other committments and have started the process. Here is the box art painted by Mike Blank. Here's hoping I can come close to Mike's quality.

    I have primed the main parts and you can see the detail that Joachim has sculpted into the bust that were not as visable when I did the kit review.

    Here is a pic of the flesh base coated with Humbrol #121 which will dry before I do the flesh in oils.

    I did the flesh last night and it will sit for a couple of days to dry.

    Guy,

    What is your flesh mix? It may be the pic, but the face looks really yellow.

    lol........the flesh is not done in this picture Matt. Plus the light is hitting the flesh area to harshly. I shall take another pic this afternoon to give a better idea of how the flesh looks.

    The flesh still needs to be highlighted and is not wet but here is another shot of the dark complected Buccaneer. His hair will be either black or gray ( haven't decided as yet and this will make a difference on how the flesh looks ).

    The flesh mix is:
    20% Burnt Sienna
    40% yellow Ochre
    40% raw umber

    Cadium yellow is blended into the highlight area and white later (haven't done this yet) is blended into the highlight area.

    raw umber is added and blended to form hair line or 5 o'clock shadow area.

    HTH

    Yep. Pics are funny. They never seem to come out like reality with figures. Keep us posted on your progress. Looking good so far. Do you go back in later and "pink up" the flesh with some reddish tones? Trying to think back to my oil days before turning to the dark side.........

    Thanks Matt,
    Yes, I do go back in and "pink up" the flesh depending on the race of the figure. If he were Native American he would pretty much stay this way. The lighter the skin tone the more I go back in to highlight later after the flesh has dried. Always seems to work better after the flesh has cured in the drying box and then highlighted.

    Thanks Joachim,
    I use Floquil R9 gray primer in the spray can. Have used it for years and am very happy with it.

    Following Mike Blank's Box art will be a tough act to follow but I hope to have a respectable version done in a couple of weeks.

    Guy,

    With your skills it shouldn't be a problem at all.
    Good luck with this great bust.
    Hope to seeing more real soon.

    Thanks Marc and Gary for the feedback.
    Gary ~ Sometimes there are too many "Irons in the Fire" but I hope to get out from under soon and go into some of the bigger projects in the works and planning stages.

    Guy, He's looking good. i like the stipped cap, very cool.~Gary
  19. nagashino New Member

    Love that hat! :lol:

    Very nice work so far Guy. He looks pretty aggressive even without the cutlery in his mouth - from what I can see you could possibly leave that out and he'd still look good.

    Excellent sculpting by Joachim. Looks like it's a pleasure to paint.

    Cheers
