More blue!! More base coating and some preliminary dark areas - tons more to do there. 

 

I discovered that Heather Blue looks totally gross as the mellowing hue for Dragon Blue. Midnight Blue and Twilight blue do well though.

Nice! I wouldn’t mind trying my hand at a animal bust (humanoid busts never interested me much )

 

looking good so far

 

He wasn't a costly one. 16pounds. However, shipping took a while, and casting quality is so-so. Also not mounted so I had to build that part and I don't have great tools for it. I am holding him by two nails that are loosely elmer's glued and sticky tacked to the back, and will be removed when it is time to mount this. 

I chose a critter for easier practice before tackling my human busts. Hopefully I can hide less-smooth transition areas in fur texturing lol. 

 

Blue is... because I wanted to.

Figone. I think it is one that the owner of Figone sculpted instead of distributing for another company.

If you order, just be prepared for a bit of a wait. Not CMON bad... but it seems like Figone is run as a one-man show, and from what I read, he lives in a small area of France and has a two hour bike ride to where he ships from, so he only ships every two weeks. If he misses one, you get a longer wait. Not a bad fellow, and did communicate when I inquired, but I wouldn't order stuff on a deadline.

looking at their site, that cape buffalo is tempting, i've always thought of them as really cool, majestic animals

 

There also very mean and vindictive!

Considered to be one of the most dangerous animals in fact.

 

And they will remember you!

 

That aside, yes beautiful animals.

I have been thinking about these busts as well, but right now I have like 12 busts waiting unpainted..

that's part of their charm! nothing more entertaining to me to see bully lions getting chased by that which they tried to hunt.

Plus buffalo will RESCUE each other. how cool is that? Instead of just fleeing when a fellow buffalo is being attacked, they'll come charging in as a huge group

 

there, i ordered it. I only have 2 busts, the dragons from RCon, so this'll be another i can try my hand at

I recently painted a Boxer Dog bust as my pet Brutus.( see Sig)

A few years ago I got challenged by Ub3r to paint a bust or large scale mini, I have grown fond of these since then.

      This is the end result of me trying ~2.5 sources of light for OSL. Red from magic runes below, teal from a flame in hand, and some moonlight from above.
      The character is our magic user (archivist/wizard/mystic theurge for Wee Jas), who got pretty beat up last session - but he got better. Hence title "revived". His familiar is an Aussie magpie, which was so vexing to paint, because instead of just a black bird, she has some spots. Gah!
      The character is pale, with black hair, and wears black and gray.... so I had a bit of an adventure trying to work around that too.
      The figure is a converted version of Dark Sword's Stephanie Law "Male Mage". I took it off the base and put it on a new one (I think MicroArtStudio?). I also filed off the tiny beard to make it just a little more different. I then took off the staff, and took the Bird on a Rock from that kickstarter and put it on the hand. That thing is on there with superglue, greenstuff, and prayers.
      The red OSL specifically wouldn't have been possible with my Reaper reds; that's Kimera paints. I tried Reaper Blood Red and it just wouldn't go bright enough. On the palette, it looks the same as Kimera's "The Red", but The Red is just sooooo much more vibrant. I thinned the heck out of it and started glazing it in.
       
      Weakest point I think is the bird, but eh, that's okay.
       
      Photos aren't perfect, but still better than what I used to get. Going to fiddle around with stuff again soon.

      This is the resin bust for the upcoming hair and makeup class at ReaperCon. It's a bit under two inches tall. Standard MSP paints for the hair and flowers. The skin tones are the new Bones paints - Ruddy to Pale Flesh.
