It has been very hard but i think i have done justice to this bust. I've tried to make it look as much as possible to actor Russell Crowe. It took me about three weeks, a week and a half only for the head. This has been my first bust, the truth that has cost me to adapt to other methods of painting but I am finally satisfied with the result, it has been exciting to paint it and try again to leap and improve my painting. At the time of painting this bust, I have taken as reference to great masters of painting like Kirill Kanaev and Pepa Saavedra, who have very different styles but all are wonderfull. Greetings to all, I hope you like it.

Bust: Roman General.
Brand: Young Miniatures.

    Very interesting NMM style you’ve showed here. I like it very much!

    • Jose_A_Alfonso

      Many thanks, mate! The NNM has been an adaptation of what I normally do on the 28mm scale. This bust being bigger it was more difficult to apply this technique. A regard.

    Hola jose
    Fantástico! Si siempre he admirado sus figuras de 28mm, usted ha demostrado con este trabajo que también domina el polo grande. Sé el primero.
