    Hi to all!
    Here my last bust ...
    Simon de Montfort was born in 1165. In 1181 took over from his father with the title of Baron de Montfort, while the county of Evreux passed to his younger brother Amaury V.
    In 1190 he married Alice de Montmorency (? -1221), Daughter of Bucardo V Montmorency (? -1189) And sister of Matthew II de Montmorency (? -1230), Connestabile (Connétable) of France, one of the leaders of the Fourth Crusade.
    In 1199 he gave membership to participate in the Fourth Crusade together abbot Guy de Vaux de Cerney. In 1202 he opposed unsuccessful siege of Zara, to comply with the letter (lost) of Pope Innocent III. Let the Crusaders in Zadar traveled to Palestine through Hungary and Italy starting from Barletta then, returning to France in 1204
    My work wants to represent him in this time ....
    Made with mixed media for the face and leather, acrylic fabrics, metals made with printing inks.
    The job is not finished yet.
    I must still make the final touches yet.
    Suggestions and comments are welcome.
    To personalize this bust, I add mustache and beard.
    Thanks for your time and for your attention.

    Great work! If I may make one minor critique, the orange highlight on the red does not work well to my eye, you may want to experiment highlighting red with old rose or a very light brown or biege. Just a suggestion take it for what its worth :)

    Thanks Jason, your comment is much appreciated.
    For the highest light, I will consider your suggestion.
    Unfortunately the photos of the bust are not perfect and change a little bit the right vision of the work.

    Thanks for your attention.
