Fantastic Costas. Love this figure (you´ll be glad to hear ). Great depth on the details on his chest, eventhough they´re quite bright. The shadows on his sleeve are also really well done ... even in images of this size. Nice one.

Very, very nice!
Once again - perfect wood texture (not mentioning the rest of this amazing bust).

Congratulations again Costas!

Costas my friend you have such an original way of painting. Your flesh tones are very good!
This figure reminds me of those old velvet mexican style pictures that I remember seeing in mexican restaurants as a child. Such an awsome bust. Keep up the good work!
