    Hi everyone,

    As I had mentioned at the end of my earlier Wyatt Earp Bust thread, here is my latest project, a 1/12 scale Wild Bill Hickok bust also sculpted by the talented Mike Good for Jaguar.

    This was based on a popular black and white photo of Hickok and the colors are a best guess. I followed the box art pretty closely and went with shades of brown especially since my Wyatt Earp bust was primarily blacks and grays.

    The bust is pretty straight forward and nothing was changed. There were however, several air bubbles in the casting and the right side of the nose had to be reconstructed. This was fixed with Vallejo plastic putty and Apoxie Sculpt. As usual, it was painted entirely in acrylics.

    Thanks for looking,
    Ken

    Thanks Tony, Mike! My first pass had more drastic highlights and shadows on the jacket but it was too overwhelming so I used a wash/filter to tone it down. Getting the right balance for me is always a challenge.

    The rumors of my demise are highly exaggerated. Talking about me in the past tense is a bit of a downer. I am still at it! :cool:
