I present you my first project on P&P. I just finished the amazing bust of Budicca (thanks Pedro Fernandez !). I painted it with acrylics and brush.
I hope you like it

    it such a beautiful bust and I think you did her justice, you have some very nice textures going on :)

    • Laurent Aubry aka Pisco

      Thanks Nils ... I work more and more with texture ... doing this I avoid large homogenic surface

  • Marc Mussat

    splendide le buste !
    cela vaut bien de l’or !

    • Laurent Aubry aka Pisco

      Merci Marc !!! En tout cas, je suis au taquet sur ce buste !
      Comme tu vois je découvre P&P, je prends mes marques !

    • Marc Mussat

      dès que ton buste aura quelques votes, il apparaitra dans la rubrique “popular”
      du coup il sera plus regardé.
      ceci étant tu verras vite que l’historique est sous noté par rapport au fantastique, qui semble plaire davantage sur ce site.

    • Laurent Aubry aka Pisco

      Pour l’instant, je comprends vaguement comment ça marche ... mais ce que j’apprécie c’est que contrairement, à Facebook on puisse d’un coup voir les oeuvres de chaque artiste sans que cela soit perdu dans le temps.
      J’ai vu qu’il y a bcp de fanta comparé à l’histo ... justement je cherche l’inspiration pour toute une série d’orques que je veux peindre ...

    Good work!
    Super the fabric representation, one believes to recognize the type of fabric.
    I like it.

    • Laurent Aubry aka Pisco

      Hi,
      I’m glad you like it. When I can i tried to paint the fabric. It brings more realism.
      Thanks !!

  • Clive Jackson

    Nice job! I like the brown hair on this bust for a change, and also the nice little touch of the freckles on the face!

    • Laurent Aubry aka Pisco

      Hi Clive,
      Budica was known as a woman with ginger hair, wearing colorful clothes with a spear.
      In the version I saw Budica as very reddish hair and I tried to change through a more auburn version.
      I tried to don’t make the same as Pepa Saavedra to the box art but he clove must be green to contrast with the hair and the tunic must be in neutral tones ... so I work on the fabric to add my personal touch
      And thank you to teach me the word “freckles” !! in french we say “taches de rousseur”.
      I saw the freckles effect on my version of Anne Bonny’ bust and i realise that imperfection points can avoid a make up effect and give to the skin a more realistic touch ...
