Second try at posting
still a bit to do
Aha, you've got it!
VERY nice work so far Ron. LOVE the pictures BTW. You were either really enjoying painting again or you're just that fast of a painter
Very nice work.
Maybe some toning down the white on the bearskin.
the photo does show a lot of light on the bearskin Marc ,but it is not so on the
model ,just my poor photography at one point I thought there was not enough
but keep the comments coming I am here to learn,
Jim this one has been a pain from the start perhaps beginning to start back with a Hussar has been a bit ambitious, looks simple enough but every stage
has brought on a sweat.
Great work so far Ron! To tone down the intensity of your light source try taking a light weight piece of white cloth (like a white t-shirt) and place it between the light source and the bust. This should soften the light source and give you a more natural look. Still, the bust looks great!
A white paper tissue works as a light difuser too.
will try diffusing the light source next time
Ambitious or not Ron, you are doing a FINE job on this bust. I look forward to your completing this as well as your experimenting with diferent techniques in your photography.
Looks like you are making good progress with this bust Ron.Taking good photos is not easy, took me a while to get to grips with them and I could still do better.
Still a bit to go, I should have done some extra work on the cross belt as in the box art as on its own it is very plain, but have since put on the oils so it might be a bit late to alter.
Picked up a stack of 2X2 oak, ash and cherry squares today, dressed on two sides so need a little work but they will make nice plinths,got them at a place near carnwrath.
Nice work Ron.
I look forward to the result.
