This is the first bust I have painted, the Soviet WW2 Tanker from Life Miniatures.

UPDATE: I uploaded some better pictures taken with my DSLR camera.

    Beautiful work, Paul! Nailed the skin!

    Great painting, although distracting background. Tablecloth?. Easily fixed though.

      I originally used a solid background but my camera phone would do some very strange things to the face. I think it is the automatic facial enhancement. The patterned background seemed to help a lot. Unfortunately, the only decent coloured backdrop was, yes you guessed a table cloth. I am working on a new better lighting and camera setup using a DSLR. So in the future the pictures should be a lot better.
