  1. I hope this is ok as it is outside the fantasy/sci-fi realm but this is what I've been working on while taking a break from the Bones 4 core set. This is a 1/10 bust from Young Miniatures sculpted by Young B. Song, Templar Knight YH1837.
  2. Here's another historical project that I'm working on. I haven't done a bust in over 3 years, so I thought it would be a nice change to do one again. This is a Prussian Hussar from Young Miniatures. They make mostly busts and their sculpts are all really well done. I was particularly drawn to this one because it's dramatic and has a lot of action/movement for a bust. The bust is only partially assembled. He's got a right arm swinging a sword, but it blocks access to his face and chest, so having that in place would make painting him a lot more difficult. I began on the face, of course. His expression is pretty dramatic and I decided to take a high contrast approach to go with it. It's a larger scale figure so conventional wisdom says I should use less contrast. But, as long as you use high contrast on major features and not overemphasize every shadow, I think you can get away with it even at this scale. For the darkest shadows I used a mix of Mahogany Brown, Rosy Shadow, and Burgundy Wine (roughly 70/20/10), then into Chestnut Brown, Rosy Shadow, and Burgundy Wine (similar ratios), then into Rosy Shadow, Fair Skin, Fair Highlight, and finally a touch of pure white. After that I went back with glazes of red, blue, and purple to add more color, deepen shadows, and create the look of stubble. Since the figure is a good deal larger than most of the stuff I work on, I tried to put a lot more detail into the figure. You'll notice that most clearly in the eyes. And, for a look at whole figure (though still missing the right arm) and a quarter for a sense of scale.
