Beautifully painted with really nice color transitions. I like how you painted worn leather. And very professional photos with nice backdrop.

Great work!

What a superb job my friend!!! I HAVE this kit, but have not yet begun to paint it or even block out the colors in acrylic!! The bust is one of the best I've seen in my many years in the hobby in both quality of the casting and in the sculptors work - The expression on this old veteran - most likely from one of the many European wars of the 13th to 15th centuries - is nothing short of magnificent...it shows a man weary of the killing, the dying, the diseases, the days and weeks of little food, water and rest A man at the absolute end of his endurance...all he wants to do is go to his home -= if it's still there. Your artistry has made this bust come to life!!! Reading the novels of Bernard Cornwell in the past year or so has given me a greater insight into the realities of military campaigns during the time frame mentioned above...This bust bring the warriors of those years alive!!! I would like to see a detailed story of your technique sometime....again, EXCELLENT Work!!!
