Fantastic fabric texture, eyes and fleshtones !
Wow, your photos came out much better than the Crystal Brush photos. Great texture work. Congrats on your crystal brush!
Yea I was kind of sad about the crystal brush pics since the face was complete in the shadow, but it did give it a darker feel. Oh well…thanks though! I really liked your bust too!
Grats!!! Well done young warrior !!! Lol

Did I mention this is amazing. So happy for you. All that talent and this time it does NOT go unrecognized. P.s. me and my lady always love the Facebook posts of your lil guy. What a treasure that little time is.
Thanks John! I’m pretty stoked to get bronze and for my next steps of growth as a painter. I really your enthusiasm and encouragement! And yup the kiddo is a blast haha
What a treasure that little tike is. Tike ..tike stupid spellcheck. Talk about stoopid I’m the moron questioning a micro computer.. :-/
Had to use google translate but thanks!!
Hi anthony. you asked me about my opinion so here it goes. I
think the overall look of the piece is good. but you have a lack of definition in many areas. not smoothness.. i mean DEFINITION. one of the main reasons is that you use always the same diffuse lighting. the face is a great example. due the position and the helmet that should affect the face.. to have so white illumination there looks odd, and the way that you made every volume so rounded also looks a bit fake. nevertheless this is a big avievement . so i am very happy and proud of you. hugs
Thanks for the critique brother! I appreciate your mind and how you think about representing different volumes and light. You’ve always been super helpful in helping me grow as a painter, much love!
Gold for me
Fantastic painting work!
Great version of this bust!
Thanks Roman! It was definitely intimidating to paint this bust given the amazing box art
