Samurai bust, 18th Century

    Hi guys, I am painting the first bust made ​​by a friend of mine.
    It has some imperfections being the first bust (I'm sure it will become a great sculptor!) and I'm trying to mask the defects with painting. I started with the face, thinking of a samurai 50 years old, at the end of his glorious career. Sorry for the horrible photos...

    Hi Fabrizio ,

    Saw this before when you posted about the sculpting , a good 1st sculpt for sure , well done for putting paint to this .

    He does indeed look like he is at the end of his career , remembering the glory days ......of battles he fought and memories he has .

    If I may the flesh needs more shadows and then look at the highlights again ...are you using Acrylics (if so can I suggest you use a retarder (...W & N blending medium ) to give you more working time to blend .

    I like the look of the mouth area ..has he any teeth still ?

    Thanks for sharing and looking forward to seeing what you do with the armour

    I made ​​some progress with painting, I finished the face, beard, hair, and started to paint the keikogi.
    The sculpture, as mentioned in previous posts, is not beautiful because it is the first work of a friend of mine, but I'm enjoying it a lot more because I think it is a challenge to paint this bust and try to disguise the defects.

    I like it and as a first sculptd it looks good to me, I think you picked an excellent way to paint it I'd maybe tone the cheeks down a little but it might be the pics too
