    As many of you know who have visited my studio I quite often paint more than one figure / bust at a time and I thought while I had mixed the flesh formula for the Young Sioux bust I would also do the Pegaso Sioux bust at the same time.

    Using the same Humbrol #121 undercoat and afterwards with Windsor & Newton oils I also fleshed out the Pegaso Sioux Warrior bust also by Carl Reid. Here is where he is at right now with the flesh dried and the next step to follow.

    As I did with the Young Sioux I also did for the painting of this bust was to crop out the box art photos for the detail areas of the bust. My colors may vary from the box art tho.

    When I first saw this figure I knew my version would have war paint at least on his face and maybe his arms too. Here is my "War Paint" references for Sioux.

    Interesting to see how the pair from the same sculptor will look by the same painter!!!

    I don't know why but IMHO the Young's bust looks so much "Indian" then Pegaso's? Maybe the painting "altered" the sculpting so much?"

    Keep us posted Guy.......

    Thanks Ray. In my opinion the box art painting has distorted the native American look of the bust. Below are photos of the master and you can clearly see the Native American look is there.

    Guy,
    This actual headdress appears in Thomas E Mails "Mystic Warriors of the Plains" and was owned by White Bull who claimed to have slain Custer personally. Can't wait to see your version finished old pal.

    Good start Guy,

    I'm curious to see how this bust, and the Young bust progress together. Two very fine examples of Carl Reid's awesome sculpting talent. I'll be following your progress with great interest.

    Thanks Dave. I have been saving reference for years on all of the Native American tribes. Both internet images as well as books.

    Guy, as usual excellent work. I was wondering, if you are useing or have used water soluble oils in your work. I have developed an intolerance to turps and am looking for some insight. Again, great work, can hardly wait to see it finished.

    Thanks James for your feedback. I use Floquil thinner for my oils and enamels. It does not have the strong "Turp smell" and is more tolerable to the nose. I have never tried the water soluble oils. Can't help you much there.

    Most of the progress made today on the Pegaso Sioux was to base coat the colors in for the Buffalo headress as well as the bone breastplate. This will all get a second coat before going on to the next step.

    I chose to go with brown for the Buffalo head dress as here in Oklahoma the Buffalo's color will vary from black to medium brown depending on the age of the Buffalo when killed. With brown I can give it more contrast than the box art version of black.

    The beads on the breastplate were given a medium gray base coat to give the beads depth after they are painted white and blue for others on the tops.

    The bone breastplate was painted Humbrol Linen and after the second coat will be given a wash with black to give the breast plate depth.
