    Really nice work on great offo's work. It is great to see gradual work, the more so that painting is not one of my skills, the better I look at such WIP threads.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers Borek

    This sculpt is on it's way to an impressive bit of painting. I agree with the slow relaxed breathing. But make sure you're not holding in a fart when it come to fine detail; even if your wife is looking over your shoulder.

    I would have cheated and printed one out on a PC, having said that you have done a very good job.

    That is truly excellent work, Kev. It’s rare to see so much detail on a single figure, even a large-scale bust like this one (excepting Napoleonics, of course) & you’ve really gone above & beyond here.
    Keep safe & keep posting!
