I have worked to transform a young looking bust from Nocturna models (Aileen) to make it look older. The last picture is from Nocturna models homepage of the original sculpt as a refeerence.

Learned a lot on this model and really enjoyed to paint it.

    This is one of my favourite projects on Putty&Paint; since a long time. Changing a character this way is so impressive. Gold and Editor’s choice from my side!  A very unique project!

      Thank you Roman, you have been one of the people that influenced me the most since the course in Arvika. It was the first course that I attended. I feel grateful for your praise.

    I love how you have taken this sculpt in a completely different direction. It’s been great to watch it come together. A well deserved gold
