Hi all

Recovered from the lurgy ( Started with a cough on the 2nd Jan ) so pulled this little gem out of the stash after seeing something Carl Barton is working on ( )....

I made a couple of tiny modifications, removed a couple of the badges and filled all but one of the holes in the T-shirt....

Primed with "Double-Acrylic" car primer I sprayed a set of base colours on..

Base AV Mahogany Sand
Mid AV Sunny Skin Tone
High AV Basic Skin Tone

Then I added some AV Dark Prussian Blue to her eyesockets and to the scalp area as a base for hair stubble.

GW Blood Red was used to redden the nose, cheeks and lips.

Over these crude base colours I used Hair brushes to build up and refine the skin colours with the addition of..

Top High AV Light Flesh.

The eyes are conventionally painted except you may notice the pure white highlights are also on the whites of her eyes, this has hopefully made them look bright ( and young )

At this stage I still need to get some of the transitions a bit smoother and then I'll be adding the eye make up and the stubble on her scalp








As ever feel free to do any of the 3 C's

OK, this is not a German, well at least not a German soldier. Are aware of that?
Please excuse me this stupid joke

Looks awsome so far. One question, how did you painted scalp? was it thin layer (filter like)?

Lookin' Really Good, bro...I LIKE the eyes - you can do SO MUCH MORE with busts of this size...I'm preparing to begin a couple of Young Miniatures busts as well as a "Pony Soldier" Australian Light Horseman in what seems to be 200mm and needed to see this one for guidance on the eyes. I used to paint the Phoenix Phollies (80mm babes) - I like doin' those type of figures (babes) because there are NO rules, and you can let your imagination & brush run wild!! Keep up the superb work - lookin' forward to seein' the finished bust....BTW - who's the manufacturer???
