    Hello everybody !
    I am currently working on this exceptional bust released by Alexandros models (http://www.alexandrosmodels.com/categories/spqr/spqr-90-roman-draconarius-iii-cent-ad).
    I only have to say that the bust is amazing in detail and precision.
    In my opinion, the challenge for the painter is to show the dozen of the sculpted details on the helmet, the colors rexflection and shadows of the metal parts and -above all- the face of an experienced, roman veteran elite warrior.
    The surfaces of the bust -sculpted by Adriano Laruccia- promote such a painting.

    Great work so far Theodoros. Love the metal work. The face shows determination with a hint of melancholy in those eyes.

    Magnificent and to be honest, I am struggling to recall a figure I have seen which had a better (and more realistic) looking face.

    Incredible work and artistry.
