Hiya folks! This is the Mongol Warrior from SK Miniatures, the idea behind the paint job was to have to sources of light, the warm fire light from the front and the cold moon light from behind. I've tried to continue the cold and warm feeling of the bust through to the general colour choices (red and teal) as well as the highlight and shadow colours (blues/teals and oranges/yellow)

Thanks for voting!

    Just WOW!

    Very great contrast between the light and dark part of the bust. Like the bright face.

    Hey John, great to see him finished. I can not remember how often I saw the figure during the progress and I really enjoyed the idea that you executed here. I enjoy the colours and light situation that you used very, very much. What I like even more is the bigger idea behind your version of this piece: Turning a historical figure into a movie hero, straight from hollywood, like out of the new ultraepic movie “Dschingis” where such hordes pillage and burn in day and night ... just my thoughts.

    Honest, direct feedback:
    Well, I would change the gold of the plinths pin. It is distracting from the light situation that you painted. I like the contrast of the face but I think some wrinkles are too dark ... just my thoughts ... no offence, buddy.

    Great work in the end and I think you learned really a lot on that one!

    I love how you are playing with shadow / light and contrast in general on this bust. Great work matey!

    I love how the forced contrast works to enhance both play on diff ambient lighting from back and front. Excellent
