    Hi pF friends,

    I've 99% finished my latest project, "Panzer Commander 1940", sculpted by talented Yury Serebryakov. 1% will be added after I heard the critiques. :)

    Hi Kaz,
    I love the overall tones on the face looks very natural. The eyes for me are the stand out and right on the money, a great job, I wish I could aspire to eyes like that.
    My only critique in viewing the face is with respect to the 5 o'clock shadow - above the top lip looks a little too clean for me in balance to the chin area.
    cheers

    Sweet! You nailed that facial expression and I see no reason not to call it good, love the 5 o' clock shadow too. The cap appears a bit plain, but not much you can do there but maybe add some slight highlights for more definition. Them eyes are spot on and very well done. You ain't kiddin, just a touch up or two and you are finito!


    Cheers, Ski.

    Nothing to Critique there Kaz ,Splendid paint job< I wouldn't worry too much about the top lip as he is fair headed.



    So five o clock shadow would not be that pronounced anyway.

    Thanks a lot for warm critiques, everyone! I'm really glad! :)

    I take advices from Richard and Marc, I applied a bit highlights on mouth edge and added a very thin layer of 5 o'clock shadows on upper lips but I applied only a very very thin layer so it's hard to notice the differences from the previous version. These were my 1%. Thank you very much.

    I set the bust up on the base and this maybe the final version of this bust.
