    Face uses Vallejo flesh acrylics very much like Jaume Marc, except I substitued Cadmium Red Umber for the red tones in the face around cheeks, chin & around mouth. Brown toning is from Sunny Skin tone. Probably took me almost 10* hours to do the face & hands at least.

    More over at MedRom.

    Robert my friend you are the guy doing the inspiring, with your Commodus keeping me going ;-)

    Thanks for the kind comments and you are right the box art does not do justice to this figure, however it is almost 20 years old so sometimes you have to look past this - 'don't judge a figure by it's boxart' :)

    Happy you like the detail on the figure as I know this is something that I've admired on your work too. Yep face is tiny & you never quite know what will come out of it as you flick the paint around, but a few sculptors like Adrianno, Roger Saunders & Andrea Jula really can capture the character of an individual, it just needs paint to bring it too life. Not sure if you knew but Mike Blank used to use lots of heads by Adrianno - he had a spares pack directly from him and swore by them.

    Best away too work.

    Kindest regards,

    Mike
