HELP Glitterwolf Decide which BUST to paint next!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I love painting Busts and large scale minis ( I blame @ub3r_n3rd).

Just finished my 5th.

 

Now which one shall I paint next?

I like them all, and have trouble deciding, since I'm a slow painter I know I will be taking my time on it.

Here are the candidates.

I would appreciate it if you give your opinion. Maybe in a top 3 or something?

 

Here are the candidates Pics in spoilers.

Help me decide please.

 

1. Athena ( Albaster Bust - Greek Goddess of Wisdom)

Bonnie Anne!

 

I wouldn't mind seeing the Shieldmaiden painted, also, but...   

I seem to remember someone else doing an absurdly good version of that a while ago...

Ben Komets did a series on the Painting Buddha channel on YouTube some time ago. Which is definitely worth a look even if (or maybe especially if ^_^) you never plan to paint the bust yourself.

Nakatan here on the forum did the most amazing conversion and paint job of the Shield Maiden (Chaos Maiden) I have ever seen, wish that the bust actually looked like the one he did. :wacko:

One reason why I didn't list the SM on my list even thou it's a fantastic model. I do believe someone else did one as well. Just more or less, something different for me.

SGHawkins is currently working on one too. She's doing a fantastic job with it.

Yeah, that's the absurdly good one. 

Even made me toss money at his Patreon. 

 

I'd advise anyone who has any plans to paint it up to competition level to avoid that thread altogether, because it'll crush their confidence.

 

Anne Bonnie is a great sculpt, even if they may have overdone the bust part ever so slightly(did I write that? what the elf is wrong with me?), and the parrot adds a lot of possibilities for playing around with colour you may not use all that often.
