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
