    I thought I'd share some progress of my photojournalist. I have just started on the cameras but the rest of him is getting close to complete. I made his skin very warm to contrast with the green jacket. For some reason all the various tones and shades don't photograph well. Let me know what you think.

    Whoa Mike, that looks seriously well!
    How about a blue or red background? Maybe that contrasts his colours to bring some life to the pictures.

    The skin tones look very nice... but I think the white hair is something that really catches the eye on this bust. Different, but really well done.

    I like it a lot Mike. It might be one of your best bust up to date. I like the jacket especially very much. There is only one thing that may need attention in my opinion. I am talking about eyes, you could try to bring them to live a little bit more.

    Very nice work Mike, your higher contrast style of painting really suits this figure it brings a bit of life to the figure.
    Looking forward to seeing the finish.
