Nice job. The tutorial is excellent.
Thanks Paul. Yes, I can’t recommend it highly enough to people starting out on busts and larger scale figures. I’d like to do it again in another few years to see how I’ve improved, or even try a version in pure black and white or sepia tones.
Very Nice! Gold!
Wow !! You perfectly followed the Sang-Eong Lee’s tutorial, your bust is a success !!
Thanks Bran for your kind words. Glad you like it!..I pretty much stuck to the tutorial except for adding a bit of light to the headset cord and outer parts of the shoulder-boards, and also stippling in a diagonal pattern on the tunic. I found the helmet to be the most difficult part to paint owing to the slight satin/low gloss finish of the black base (it made it difficult to tell where highlights had or hadn’t been painted as it was naturally reflective). I ended up putting matte varnish over everything except the medals and headset pieces.
Great job ❤️
