Hi all,

Included I post some pictures of a 90mm head a did a while ago for a friend/collector/figure painter. The head is by Andrea, 90mm and comes in white metal. I tried to give the head a very cold look. I hope it looks this way? As always everything was painted with acrylics and inks.

All remarks, hints and tips are more then welcome.

Cheers,

Gino

Hi Gino nice work on the head and i think you have caught the cold mood very well,i like the way you have captured the eyes they look tired and worn.

Great painting of this cold face Gino! Would you mind to share your mix that you use to create this cold look. Because I'm going to paint some figure of the retreat from moscow in the near future.
