Regimental S4 Arab Girl Bust

    Here is a fun little project I have had the pleasure to do recently. This is a piece from The Regimental S4, sculpted of course by Nick Majerus. It represents, I believe, a ficticious Arab girl from a book that Nick found and he calls her, "Protector of the Harem". This is the box art for the release, and it was a fun piece to paint. I tried (for the first time for me) to get a somewhat transparent look to her top (likely not "historically acurate" given she's of middle eastern origins, but this is a ficticious piece, so what the heck!). I wanted her top to look like embroidered lace and again, be somewhat transparent (the pictures of her back are crap and I lost the pattern due to them being to "hot"). I also wanted to give her more color other than just say traditioal black, so the purple is what I went with. All painted in oils as per usual, the metalics are printers inks. This piece is cast in typical beige resin, and comes in 3 pieces (base, bust and knife), ans scales out to a typical 200mm bust size. It was super cleanly cast, and had little to no clean up at all. I think the possibilitites with this piece are vast as far as colors and patterns. It could be simple, or have very intricate patterning depending on the painters desires. Hope you like it, Nick out did himself on this one! Thanks for looking!

    Why Nick, you sly old dog you...superb. And no better way to show off a good sculpt than to turn Jay loose on it. Beautiful!

    A hearty thanks to all for the kind words!! This is a fun piece to paint and I think it shows.

    As for the pattern Tommi, here is what I did. I painted the shirt first as I would normally (including her "see-through" nipples). I let it dry completely. I then used straight T-white (oils of course, so I could make corrections as I worked if necessary)that I had thinned just slightly to free-hand the pattern onto the shirt with one of my smallest brushes, being sure to keep the lines nice and thin. I then used the mid and shadow tones from my shirt mixes as a "drop shadow" on each of the small embelishments I painted in white. I saw it as an embroidedred pattern, so each of the small bits of pattern would be just slightly raised from the base sheer material. I stuck with the overhead lighting technique and only shadowed the bottoms of all the shapes. It was quite labor intensive, but worth it I think. I just wish my pictures did it justice, they look better in person! I hope this makes sense! Thanks for asking,

    Jay H.
