This a very beautiful figure sculpted by the talented Signor Gianni La Rocca and researched by Marco Giuliani and Michael Gohl. The figure is a 90mm. Roman Gladiator "Thraex". After a long break from painting, I finally decided to start this figure. I painted the Galea " broad brimmed helmet crested with a gryphon head" , and the Ocrea "bronze carved greaves". They still need extreme shadows and highlights. Bornze Base = Liquitex acrylic Iridescent Metalic bronze + a bit of Liquitex acrylic raw umber. Medium Shadow = base + more Raw umber and a touch of black. Deep Shadow = Raw Umber + black. Medium Highlights = Iridescent Metalic Bronze. High highlights = Roses gold powder. Extreme Highlights = touches of silver here and there. The Perizoma is undercoated in red acrylic and ready fo the oils. Cheers Roc.
