A nice relaxing piece I painted to get back into the groove again. Hope you like it!

    Well done! He really feels very harmonic from the color choices and very natural. Lovely texture on the leather and fabric parts. The skin feels a little bit too well blended for me in his face - nothing wrong with that - but it feels a bit unnatural somehow. Like there is a softener filter from a mobile on it and I know it isn’t. It is painted that way and I personally do not see a medieval bowmans skin treated so well without any flaws, without any texture or scars or at least a little bit of a beard shadow. Nonetheless a really good version of this bust! Keep on happy painting!

      Hi Roman, thanks for your input! It’s greatly appreciated. Youre right. I purposefully gave him a very smooth and young face as a lot of archers were very young, they started their training at 10 years of age and by 18 were battle competent. I also find it amusing that apparently their right hand side was often much bulkier than the other due to all the training. In hind sight im still happy I painted him very young but perhaps I should have added dirt and maybe scratches or bruising…...

    Well done master Jay :)

    Lovely painting !
    Maybe a little extra shadows on the bottom of the face imitating an early beard could have given him a more authentic apparence ?
    Well done !

    I like how you rendered the clothes and all of the various materials. It feels very worn out and the textures feel good for the materials used. Awesome work!
