Hi guys, I've had a much-needed break from modelling recently and have just started back again. My latest effort is this very good likeness of Tom Hanks as Captain John Miller, 2nd Ranger Battalion D-Day 1944 from the movie "Saving Private Ryan" produced by Young Miniatures. The facial likeness is very good and although I wish the bust came with a helmet, I believe the bare head will enhance the final look of the bust. Just started a couple of nights ago laying down the basic acrylic colours for the face and some preliminary highlights and shading ahead of the oil washes. In keeping with the washed out colour palette of the movie, which gave it a wonderfully drab, realistic and historic feel, I'm planning to keep my colour palette on the drab side. Still early days but a fun start. Have to watch the movie again the weekend for research purposes!!
