Sinestro, the Yellow Lantern (Anonymous bust)
Javier González; "Arsies"
I have since a couple of months an "Anonymous" copy of this bust from Alfonso Giraldes, waiting his slot. As I become stopped some days due logistic troubles (a couple of shippings with my next commisions should arrived, but still none) and I'm a bit oxidated from the Christmas Stop, I decided to give it some relaxing time.
Hardest was to find something Alfonso didn't yet on it with his one million versions painted. He don't make it easy for us... The anatomy remids me some kind of thin bad guy, and I don't know why (As I'm not a big Green lantern fan or something) The bad guy, Yellow Lantern, Sinestro, his Nemesis, come to my mind. Conversion is not hard at all, just some dressing,the neck, the simbol, shave him and painting.
In fact the ending is not bad at all, i like it so much and it's very funny to paint. It's curious because as most Alfonso's works, first looking shows a fast skets did like to expend some time, but as deeper you get on it, you can see so many things thought behind that have a purpose very well thinked (as the million paintedc busts, that are one hour and a half sketches but very controlated and some of his best things for me lately).
I think is the funniest mini I painted for a while so Alfonso, if you read this, take it as a compliment, I loved to paint it! :D
