    He's by FER Miniatures and i think his name was "Jamel" as he was a fantasy bust.I added the collar and chain.
    I undercoated him in Humbrol 93 Desert Yellow ,and then used a mix of Warm Sepia,Naples Yellow and Tit White and Lamp black and Naples Yellow for his hair and beard etc,.I always try to keep my colours as simple as possible,hence Warm Sepia and Naples Yellow is a great starter for black skin.

    I know what you mean, painting can take your mind of things and I am sure everyone will agree it can also melt your head, but that's whats good about PF there is always inspiration to help us along.
