I present to you my latest work on the bust "Old Barbarian", produced by Black Sun Miniatures and sculpted by Freeman .... I wanted to transform this barbarian bust into a viking bust. So I created a new shield and remade the head of the hammer as well as the belt buckle. I took off the bracelet of the right forearm which holds the hammer, creates a bracelet on the right wrist, removed the bandage on the left bicep, decrease the muscles of the back and the abdominals and raise the pectorals a little. I hope these changes will not upset the creators of this bust.
Transformation is a way to learn sculpture little by little and it was really nice to try this ....
The painting is done with Vallejo acrylic and W&N brushes.

    As said to you earlier; I’m really impressed by the freehand painting on the Viking shield - I also love the ‘wear and tear’ effect. Great job on the conversion/sculpting of the character too! BTW: The ‘White’ hair looks very realistic! Great paintjob all the way! GOLD!
