Beyond Miniatures.

Modified the bust as I was mainly interested in painting his face and felt that the bust was out of balance from the body part to the face. Just my personal feeling. So I changed it. Really a great face to work on. Enjoyed it a lot!

Hope you like my version!

In private collection.

Keep on happy painting!

Best Wishes

    Truly a rude face! Like a brawler or a veteran fighter. Awesome job! I like the idea to revisit this bust! Gold for me.

    I love this one Roman. So much cool variety and texture on the skin. I also want to experiment more with this. Gold :D

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Thanks a lot! Yeah I really enjoy working mainly with texture as it allows a more natural variety I think, but it is also a question of style. I sometimes wonder if I could paint as smooth as you, but I am open for new experiments. Thanks!
