This is such an extremely helpful thread, thank you so much for sharing all of this! :wub: I've wanted to start working on a bust I got as practice before tackling the Morihalda bust I got at ReaperCon, but been kind if intimidated. I'm more used to approximating facial features due to the scale on 28mm minis, so your excellent face painting tutorials you've done give me courage! ^_^

 

Huzzah!

I've got some pics of my old busts from before photobucket ate all my wips.  I can try to post some of them here and show where I put things if it would help.  I feel bad- I'm trying to replace all my old tutorials but the sheer number of photos is killing my desire to repeat all the work.  Plus my hard drive died and took all the edited photos, so I have to go back to the original camera cards.  Which since I'm a hoarder, I haven't wiped yet.  yay for hoarding!

 

One place I go to look at how people paint busts is cmon.  kiril (yellowone), pepa, jarhead and nakatan are all in the top artist section and they do really stellar work on skin.  I go look at their eyes and textures especially.

 

thanks everyone!!!

The one picture of yours that I know I've seen but can't find is the one where you have a bunch of non-standard flesh tones that you demonstrated on the Bones cloud giantess.  This tutorial is probably enough to compensate on it's own, though.  

 

As always, thanks for being so generous with your time.  Your tutorials are amazing!  ^_^

      Sea Storm is a resin female pirate bust from Altores Studios in 1/9th scale. The piece is basically the head/body, the hat, pipe, and a loop earring. I replaced the earring with copper wire. Apart from some mold trash where the coat and torso meet, there were no major issues. Primed with my dwindling supply of Floquil Railroad Colors' Gray Primer and painted with Reaper acrylics.

      Wellcome to our biggest miniatures ever! Blood and Skulls ork rider is the largest and more detailed miniature in 70 mm scale that Nocturna models released in all of these years. This project is really monstruous and we need your help to fund it.
      Take a look at all the figures in the campaign, all of them are in 70 mm scale. Blood and Skulls is 28 cm high!
        28 cm total size

      So I gotta say... the cast quality was so so on this. So I decided to hide that with "kinda dead". Very loosely inspired by Salem from RWBY. I put the figure down about 25% done for over a year then slammed it out in February as a "get it done" and to practice white hair before going to the next Vancouver paint club figure. Sucks that this one somehow also felt a bit like a self portrait by the time I was done.

      This is the "Soul Stealer" bust from Artisan Guild's welcome pack on patreon. I printed it on my Elegoo Mars Pro resin printer.
      This might be the first bust I have ever painted, not counting an Orc bust from the very early days of Forge World that I started but never finished and sold off at some point in the distant past (oh, the Folly of Youth).


      So why this newfound fascination for busts? I hear you ask.

      Well, it's the RCL again. "Bust" is a quarterly category, and since Reaper only make a very few busts, none of which are readily available at the moment (there will be a few released after Bones 5 fulfills later this year), the fine folks at Reaper have decreed that bust entries are not limited to Reaper product.

      Did I mention that the RCL has been a fun way to choose what to paint? It really helps to keep things fresh and to motivate to finish the pieces I start. And now also to paint other stuff than I usually would.

      I do not buy busts as they are generally outside my scope of interest. However, I do own one or two busts as .stl-files that have been parts of patreon bundles.
      And with such an extensive library of files at hand, once I decide to do one, it does not take long to make supports and print one off.

      But what to choose? Tentacle-face or a human face?
