    Hi Gang
    Finished these two a couple of weeks ago and thought you would like to see 'em
    Both EVD busts painted in oils over acyrilics and printers ink used for gold and other "bits"
    Very enjoyable project and quite a challenge especially the fabric on the queen
    As always comments and other views welcome
    Cheers

    John

    PS I wonder what Santa is bringing me! What is he bringing you guys?

    WOW that's a really amazing paintjob. I especially like the woman. Excellent skin under the dress. I love it.

    great work John,

    How you managed the highlights on the gold. I use printerinks also but never can get them so real.

    That Nefertari is awesome. Specially the fabric.

    John,
    nicely done indeed! Both are nice, but the translucent fabric on the queen is particularly nice! I think the flesh tones are very nice, it looks like the golds in particular, and possibly the colors in the neck pices could use a bit more dynamic lighting, but over all both are fantastic!

    Thanks gang for the comments

    Marc;- The highlights on the gold were achieved by mixing a slight touch of pure titanium white into the ink mixture also I think that the mix of ink and thinner is important. too much thinnner and the ink goes pale I like to get the mix of ink a bit like single cream Also its a bit of trial and error!

    Jay;- The neck pieces were a bit tricky because I stripped the queen down to bare metal from a previous paint job and cleaned up the necklace a bit too much with files and emery cloth resulting in poor surface to paint on! The Pharoah was not a particulary good cast around the neck and proved a tricky paint job
    When I had finished I wasnt very happy but overall thought that I had achieved a good job so I left it.
    Glad you like 'em
    Cheers

    As a non-painter, I marvel at your achievement! Nefertari is particularly stunning. You deserve to do well in competitions with them!

    All the best,
