    I decided to share with you the beginning of the painting work on this beautiful 1/10 scale bust, the latest news from Crecy Models.
    This will be the alternate version (official Boxart being worked on by Cipriani Arianna) representing the Teutonic Grand Master Urlich Von Jungingen during the battle of Tannenberg.
    As always, I work all in acrylic.
    The sculpture is so beautiful that it is a real pleasure to sit at the painting table; stay tuned for the next steps.

    How did you achieve gloss on lips?

    thank you, I am very pleased that you like the beginning of the work. The bust is very beautiful, so this also makes painting a lot easier and pushes you to enhance every detail. The open mouth is definitely an unusual detail that makes this expression interesting. I painted the mouth with normal Vallejo acrylics, and once the work was finished and dry I gave small glazes of gloss vallejo to recreate the moist effect of the inner cheeks and lips.

    Great job on the face! I have to say, the surfaces of the bust don't look very smooth. OK for the cloth, I guess, but it looks like it would be hard to get a nice finish on the armor.

    Hi Enrico in your last post you let us see what amazing work that you could do with 1/35 scale, you have now moved way up in size and you have totally nailed that face, I will be following your progress with interest as medievals' would be my thing, great stuff.

    Looks like 3D print layers are visible in the armour.

    Beautiful painting of the face!

    this is the first bust digitally made in 3D by this company, so I believe they will certainly have a way to improve their quality even further. There are small signs of the print, which are noticeable only in small portions of the smooth surfaces. But I'm confident I can hide this effect with color. We will see how the painting will continue.

    hi Nap, thank you. If you mean what kind of colors I used, I tell you that mainly I always work with colors from the Vallejo range and some rare colors from Andrea. Honestly, it is more for the sake of ease of finding the colors of this company than the other. I believe that, with a little practice, in the end the difference is more the color control than the pigment itself; different speech instead for metals, where a too glittery finish is not good as a final effect.

    Impressiv face, like the beard too.

    I thank you for the nice words spent so far.
    Let's go a little further, starting to work on the metals of the mail and the helmet.
    I don't like armor that is too shiny, because I believe that at the time the metal, so much that it was worked well and also because of the intensive use, always had a more opaque finish than certain chromed armors that are seen around today.
