US Marine Corps Vietnam Bust

    Hi,

    Another recent bust I finished is from SK Miniatures of a US Marine Corps in Vietnam. After seeing a youtube video of how to create rain effect I decided to give it a try. So the rain effect was created using fibre optic cable & Humbrol Gloss Coat. The rain drops on the bust itself was done by using Transparent Pebo Deco paint. The bust itself was painted with Vallejo acrylics & Darkstar metallics. The water on the base was created using Deluxe Materials Solid Water & Making Waves, with a little paint added for the color. The leaves & plants were fish tank accessories. At a first attempt trying this effect I was happy with the result.

    Comments Welcome

    Cheers

    Steve

    Great finish on the bust and I think you've pulled it off with the rain effects too.

    My only criticism is that I think the leaves are too bright and garish. I'd have airbrushed them in duller green tones to make them look more natural.

    I echo the above about the leaves but the "rain" effect works really well.
