The torso was pretty straight forward to paint, though I was bit disappointed with the slightly crusty finish on the brass parts. I've exaggerated the blue somewhat to introduce a bit of colour - the tunic should be more blue/black, as in the film still.

Very nicely done and a higher level of contrast than you normally go for. Now you will have to get the others in the series.

Thank you the John's

Strangely, I wasn't deliberately trying to up the contrast John B. I think the extremely shiny nature of the blue paint meant that I judged the tones differently. I was quite surprised with the result once the matt varnish had dried.

I like this one a lot. I do feel your bust work has come on leaps and bounds. Are there different techniques required to paint a bust compared to a figure?

Peter,

The colours and variation in the face are superb.

Thanks for the kind words chaps.

Steve - I'm not aware of using different techniques when painting a bust. It's all equally as difficult, and I just use what means are available get the job done. I suppose that the larger they get, the more opportunity one has for exploiting detail, depending on the sculpt, though I have found that over 1/10th / 200mm my 'technique' is less successful. I'd also say that the size difference between 120mm and 200mm isn't that great, so there's not much adapting to do - the busts still feel tiny to me. It's going down in scale, especially to 1/35 that I find problematic.

Peter.
