    I was able to finish the eyes last night and finally get the chance to take a few photos.

    Hello Guy,
    That's looking great. Excellent fleshtones. May I ask what you did to get the rosy cheeks? Very nice effect :)
    So, what do you think of this bust? From all of the pictures I've seen, I like how it looks. But that's no substitute for having it in your hands.
    I'm looking forward to seeing more of this one from you.

    Thanks Craig.

    The rosy cheeks is done with a dot of titanium red to the center of the cheek and then blending it outwards with a soft brush.

    You all don't see me do many Roman subjects but when I saw this it was a "Gotta-have" and became worse when I got it. I put the bust right into the bench with the already several figures I had in progress. I can usually wait .........but not this time.

    Thanks Roc and Luca. I appreciate the feedback

    Here is the latest progress with the Centurion. The face and helmet is done along withthe plume. The rod the plume mounts on is drying and the cheek guards are primed and ready to paint.

    The head has now been fastened to the chest and the wolf skin has been painted and drybrushed.

    Guy,

    That was fast. I like this bust. You have done a wonderful job on this one. Might have to consider it for myself. What did you use for your metal?

    Thanks Brad..........I used Floquil Gun Metal followed with a black wash followed by drybrushing lightly with Floquil Old silver.

    Hope this helps.

    Guy,

    Thanks. Even though I am an acrylic guy, I do own a handful of Floquil paints. They are really excellent.

    Great work Guy,

    Now that all is together i like it. When i first saw the face i thought this must be more highlighted.
    But no, it is allright when all comes together.
    Great work

    Thanks Marc. I am never happy with just a painted face until the colors around the face are done. Its hard sometimes to get it right without the rest done first but I look at other completed figures in my collection before starting to determine the flesh tone needed.

    Finally getting some paint time today I was able to finish the crest and mount to the helmet. The cheek guards will be next.

    Thanks Kenneth.....I appreciate the feedback. The wolf pelt was painted dark gray, given a wash of Engine black. After the wash dried there were 3 seperate dry-brushes done:
    1....medium gray all over
    2.....light gray to the highlight areas
    3.....white to the very highest points of the pelt and the edge of the pelt.

    The detail is there to really bring out as you can see by the previous photos of the pelt primed.

    Hope this helps
