    Hi All,

    I would like to present to you the bust I'm working on this moment. It's a resin casting by Fer miniatures which required almost no cleaning up!
    As always, in my case anyway, all is painted using acrylics and inks. At the moment I'm kind of bored always painting the same zenithal light, so once again I'm experimenting with directional light.

    I'm curious to hear what you all think of it, and all and any tips on how to improve my work are greatly appreciated.

    Cheers and thanks for watching,

    Looking forward to your next step.

    Hi Marc,

    How are you?
    Thanks to a new camera it's much easier for me to take pictures, so I'll be able to post more often and more WIP. Hoping to buy a mini light tent at SMC, so hopefully that will improve the quality of the pics.

    Take care and see you at SMC,

    As I made some progress on this bust, I can show you some pictures. By now I consider the face, shirt and the big rusted metal piece on his back, although some last minute touches will most probably made. The leather straps are base coated and have received a first layer of inks. Next is highlighting, shading and detailing these belts and then come the big metal cheastplate. Looking forward to that as I would like to do some freehand work on that.

    As always I would love to hear what you think of it and all tips & tricks on how to improve are greatly appreciated.

    Take care,


    P.S. Does somebody knows how I can make my pics appear after the text? No matter where I insert them, they keep appearing at the end of my post. Many thanks in advance.
