    Default Congratiulations, it's a boy... ahem, I mean "bust"

    Hy there folx,

    to say it with the words of Monty Python: And NOW for something COMPLETELY different!

    I finally finished my first bust! It's a murmillo gladiator from Pegaso Models I found some months ago at the german "Duke of Bavaria" event. I absolutely love this bust, especially the helmet. I quickly started to paint the bust but lost my motivation at about 75% completion. I must admit a bust is a bit static for me. I missed a fancy base or some customizations to make this a unique display object. SO I had to force myself to finish this little fella. But in the end I am quite happy with the result. The skin was a bit tricky, because I never painted anything that big, but hey it was a challenge.

    Hope you like the bust.

    Not quite as exciting as some of your previous entries, but still technically brilliant! Skin tones are perfect.

    Excellent as always ! skin is perfect, and so is the leather, it reminds me of an old WW1 army dress belt i had.
    its a shame how the right leather strap going over the shoulder follows the contour of the clavicle, its the only bit that doesn't look real. But I cant think of any other way they could sculpt it without doing a GW

    Is that because of the lack of boobs?

    @Avelorn
    I used polishable metallic paints. I can't remember which brand i used but you have to spray them on with an airbrush and when dried you have to polish it to get a nice realistic metall tone. Then you can begin weathering it with whatever you want, glaces, pigments, washes and so on...
