My wife is a big Harry Potter fan, so when I saw this sculpt by Pablo Ronda I knew I had to paint it for her, and that’s how I painted my first ever bust!

I used dark colors with subtle highlights (may be too subtle) in the robes to give the face more focus, and tried a slightly dramatic shadow in the face to reflect the duality of the character: hero and villain, left brighter and right darker side. Finally, with Pablo’s help, we prepared a nice box to store and showcase the model.

Overall I’m quite proud of this first bust paint, although I’m aware of how much I can still improve. But she loves it! So I consider it a success.

    This is absolutely brilliant.  My bride is also a huge Potter fan and something like this would fit nicely on her shelf of Potter books, Lego sets, wands, and all things Harry Potter.

      Thanks Mike! Glad that you like it. I know the feeling, she just got a showcase for all the Potter stuff :) I would recommend to asking Pablo Ronda as he has plenty of Potter items your bride may love.
