    I got this for a bargain price a little while ago from Sambaman ( thanks Jay! ) and after Euro started working on it!

    Used an Airbrush to lay down the 4 basic colours and then I have been working on him between other bits and bobs, probably 6 sessions and about 12 hours to this :)

    The skin areas are virtually finished and hair and eyebrows are to do ....

    Pictures!

    Great to see one of Derek's old pieces again. He was certainly a big influence on me when I first started sculpting. I still enjoy seeing his work and seeing it painted to such a high level has really elevated this piece.

    Fantastic painting! Looking forward to seeing this complete.

    One question. Have you and Derek (RIP) ever met my "X"? How did you manage to capture her likeness so well? :confused: :lol:

    Sorry, couldn't resist...

    Some lovely work on this Mark, very painterly (y) On the eyes though, check the size of the iris.
