    One of the figure's I did last year is the "Viksoe" bust from Romeo Models that I've changed in to a full 200mm figure. It's the first time I do something like this, but I'm quit happy with the result. Forehead and hair are sculpted, as I left the helmet of, and all beneath the waist. The horn stiill needs a bit of whettering. I'm sure there are guys out there who could do this a lot better than I, but I enjoyed doing it and I hope you like it at least a little bit. Thanks for looking,
    Eddy

    Very interesting transformation, good job.(y)

    My critique will be regarding the arm hair, looks strange special the left arm, looks like he shaved the entire arm but not the top part.. the hair does not match

    Many thanks for the kind comment, guys! Much appreciated.:)
    Rodrigo : It still need some updates on the horn as well. I can give the upperarms a little more hair, but as I look at my forearms, I too have more hair on my forearms and almost none on my upperarms. I didn't shave them dough. Perhaps it's just me.;)
    Cheers,
    Eddy

    You're turning into a bit of a 'Jimbo' with your sub-torso extension.
    Very nice sculpting .... I like it a lot.
    All finished off with your usual excellent painting and presentation.
    Very, very well done Eddy.

    Cheers,

    Hi Andrew, many thanks for the nice feedback, much appreciated.:)
    And you're way to kind for the resemblence, but I am no match for Jimbo, who was an inspiration for me on this one, and who's work I admire.
    It was a bust that was easy changeable, and I enjoyed it very much, not at first, as my first impression
    when just started was "Eddy, where have you got yourself into now again...:rolleyes:
    But at the end I was quit happy with the result.
    Cheers, mate,
    Eddy

    Hi Keith, thanks mate, indeed a whole new experience, I really had a lot of fun, and that's what it's all about.
    To many people takes themselfes way to serieus in figure painting, as all we do is putting some paint on a bunch of little toy soldiers.
    I don't know if it will be the last, but it sure gives more convidence when you do minor changes.
    Cheers,
    Eddy
