Some Progress and Experiment

Image
I started painting the body of the bust- and the helmet. I decided to add the "scrim" or camo material. It is from a fine weave bandage, I'm not sure it will stay.

Cape and Hat

Back on the workbench.... I sprayed the cape and hat flat black- I masked the painted areas with blue-tack and saran wrap. Then on the hat I started brush work of applying highlights and dirt.. Used English Uniform, Leather Brown and a pink color to highlight.

Back From Yosemite

Image
Spent a week in Yosemite National Park. It had snowed while we were there. We were lucky that the roads were passable without chains. My Canon 30d broke on the first day. I used my back up point and shoot for the picture taking. Lesson- carry two bodies!



Artist Preservation Group

Mike Stelzel asked if I would donate a figure to the APG for auction at next year's APG show. So, I immediately thought of this figure. The APG is such a great group and cause. I hope they raise lotsa mula for this one. http://www.artistpreservationgroup.com/
