Bust from Spawning Pool Studios (https://www.spawningpoolstudios.com). Sculpted by Sheridan Doose, based on a character from the Catacombs of Time novella by Dylan Doose.

An absolute pleasure to paint! The level of detail in the sculpt is intimidating, but the 1:7 scale makes it accessible.

Tried to push myself with colour and lighting on this piece. If I could go back, I would do some things differently. But overall I am happy with how it turned out.

Brush with Derivan Matisse artist acrylics (Structure range). Primary colours with black and white.
