    Hi! Dimitrios.
    The amazing fresh tone!
    And indeed a facial contrast is wonderful.
    I also liked the feel of a material of the mantle very much.
    Indeed a perfect work.
    I congratulate completion.

    Good God Dimitrios! Your painting keeps getting more and more incredible. So tell me, what does the devil look like? :)

    Thank you guys for your kind comments. It s been very fun painting this one and i m glad you like the result.
    Mike i m not familiar with the expression "what does the devil look like? " but i take it it refers to the bust, So i have to say that the sculpting of this one is really amazing and everything about it is a joy to paint. I know you have painted one of your own and i think you d agree with me.
    Foxyboy the helmet was done starting with a black acrylic undercoat. Then i mixed gold ink with Winsor and Newton Vandyke brown. Applied lights and shadows and blended. Then for deeper shadows i used a mix of Vandyke brown, Pthalo green and Cassel earth with a stippling motion. Last for lights a mix of gold ink and pthalo green was used. Alot of blending and waiting for oils to dry in between!

    Hi Dimitrios,

    In my opinion, this is better than the box art, and considering you painted the box art, that's quite a compliment. I love the way you've made every little muscle and vein pop.

    Thanks Dmitrios, I have taken note of the colours, however what shades are Pthalo Green & Cassel earth, perhaps a dark green and earth colour -- sorry to sound complicated but have never heard of these shades.;)
