Working on United Empire Miniature's 1/6 Scale bust of Plato

I've started work on a 1/6 scale bust of Plato by United Empire Miniatures. I've been using acrylics for this project.  I think the eyes and skin tones turned out pretty well on this one.

Finished up some Pulp Figures

Working through some of the stash and I finished up these Pulp Figures.  I believe all of the sculpts are made by Bob Murch.
The figures painted very quickly and are really nice sculpts. Nice detail on all of them.

Marvel Crisis Protocol: The Hulk and M.O.D.O.K are completed

Finished the first two figures from the new game Marvel Crisis Protocol.  Both of these were rather fun to do.  I did about 80% of the Hulk's painting with an airbrush. Hadn't done anything like that before so that was fun.
I'm looking forward to do the next set of figures from the game.

Part 1 of Pegaso Models 200mm Pirate Bust

I spent some time this past week while we were away on our Spring Break holiday painting the flesh tones on Pegaso Models 200mm Pirate Bust.

I used all oil paints on this piece.  I primed the model using Black, Grey and then White for a Zenithal priming effect.

Here are some photos of the process and the palette colors I used.
The palette- Naples Yellow Hue, Cad. Yellow Medium, Cad. Orange, Alzarin Crimson, Burnt Umber, Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna, Ultramarine Blue, Titanium White

The primed head.

The first layer of color. I ended up not liking the hair color and switched to a Pale Blonde color instead.

Shadows and Highlights added as very thin layers over several days to build up the color.

Starting work on the eyes.

The pale blonde hair looks better.

The face and hair are completed. Just needed to add in the pupils.

I hope you liked this. You can jump over to my YouTube channel and see it with a little better definition.
