Sikh Bust - Finished

Ciao a tutti,

I've finished this little gem, has been an absolute pleasure to paint this little bust.

I used this bust to experiment few techniques and new colour schemes.

I highly recommend this JMD's bust, I've found the sculpture amazing especially the face.

The only flaw is that is completely missing any historical or uniformology information, finding info on the net is not so easy as well..

I hope you like it, let me know what you think.

Ciao

Sikh Bust - Step 2

Ciao a tutti,

Here I'm again with this nice JMD bust.

I've almost completed the torso, I just need to finish the gold shoulders patches.

The jacket has been made using a stippling technique, using various shades to depict the "english uniform" going from sunny skintone to black.

Has been a nice experience and I think I will try it on other busts as well.

Calvin Tan did a magnificent bust using this technique and Hardy tempest does something similar with oil colours, and he is a true artist.

Leathers are done using oil colours, to give the shiny/translucent finish.

Let me know what you think.

Ciao

Giovanni

Ciao a tutti,

Has been long time since I've updated my blog.

Many things are happening, the biggest one will be revealed soon.

For the time being I'm painting this splendid bust from JMD, should be a fairly quick painting for my standard.

The sculpture is amazing, particularly the face.

Flesh tones are done, beard as well, maybe some touch up will be done.

Let me know what you think.

Ciao
