    Hi PF friends,

    This is another bust I finished painting recently. It is a 1:12 bust from El Greco Miniatures - "Deus Vult (God Wills It)" A great open box review of this bust can be found in a previous thread Nap posted at http://www.planetfigure.com/threads/deus-vult-bust-from-el-greco-miniatures.59829/

    I paint this bust as a Templar Knight who wears a white surcoat with a red cross and also a white mantle with a red cross. In order to prevent the two white parts from resembling each other too much, I painted them using different color tones for white and as materials having different texture (linen vs coarse woollen) to bring some artistic difference.

    As always, any comments and feedbacks are welcome. Hope you like it. Thanks!
