I had seen some previews of the sculpt by Lucas Pina on the Spira Mirabilis facebook page and immediately knew I had to get one as soon as it was available… I loved both the subject, style and actual sculpt. It also looked like the cast was great too, so when I saw that it was out early at the world model expo it was one of the first things I bought!

If you’ve been following Stockholm Warpaint over on our facebook page you might have seen this bust already… I posted an album with the finished bust against a dark grey background a while back.

This 1/12 scale little guy was a complete joy to paint and I actually took my time on this one and took proper pictures of every painting-step for a tutorial that is on it’s way! For the time being however here’s the finished bust!

I’ve painted a couple slightly larger pieces recently and it’s a lot of fun being able to add more detail than you normal would be able to when painting smaller stuff. The freehand pattern and texture on his shirt and belt are examples of this, as well as the aged skin with all the liver spots etc..

It took about 20 hours to finish this one (but that’s including all the extra time it took photographing all the steps and stuff…)

Thanks for checking this out! For more stuff from me and my friends visit www.stockholmwarpaint.com

    Easily the coolest version of this incredible sculpt… Your different spots on the skin make this look extremely realistic and interesting… Gold again! :D
