This is my first bust project after painting skirmish and board game miniatures for some years. I did a lot of preparation prior the project by learning about the technique of the Spanish painters (Sergio and Arnau mainly). The bust is called "A moment of serenity" by Massive Miniatures (sculpted by Peder Bartholdy), and the first time I saw it, I knew this will be my first project, even though I already had quite a few busts in my collection :D.

My plan was to almost exclusively use earth tones for the project, and portray the minotaur as a gentle giant who wandered into the forest and meets a squirrel the first time. I feel like I could have done a little more with lighting, but hopefully next time I can improve even more.
