Quoted Text

Andrzej, nice work so far but ask your wife how to apply make-up. I think you gone to far with blue



Thanks Marcin! My wife checks the progress every now and then so don't worry - I'm supervised
I've been using boxart of this bust as a reference:

BTW, I started with more typical shape of make-up, but I've figured that whole thing may look more interesting the way Lorenzo Bartolomei painted it.

And some argue as make-up was expensive and luxury in that era. It was more important to show that you had it rather than to look natural.

Not mentioning that in Rome black unibrow was considered "beauty", so girls used to paint their brows with soot and as close to nose as possible to achieve that look...
Well, I am NOT going to do that

Seems to me the figure have been inspired from Polly Walkers character Atia from the HBO series, ROME?

Thanks Peter!
I really like the pilot. Nice work! What is the scale, is it 1:10 or something smaller?

I've finished my Matrona some time ago but had some problems with camera... anyway - here she is. I do hope you like her.

Andrzej It is 1/10 and there were a few inperfections on the face under the mask which I couldn't remove, but other than that it was enjoyable.

Now your work is outstanding. Very impressed. How did you find airbrushing the figure at the start?

Thank you very much guys! You're too kind!

As for airbrushing - I didn't use a retarder so I had to be carefull to avoid clogging of nozzle and spitting effect. It was difficult at first, but the bust is so nicely sculpted that it was pleasure to paint it.

Pete, some hardly accesable imperfections seem to be main issue with the one piece busts... (and smalle figures too). Fortunately my Matrona was in 5 pieces (torso, head, two pieces of hair and metal earring) so it was quite easy to clean even the minor imperfections.

Just a few new pics to show where I am at currently.....



Just needs the eyes re-painting, followed by a layer of Tamiya smoke then he(it) will be done.



Although I might leave the over drydrush on the eyes and see what a coating of smoke does anyway, might look intresting.






The base I came up with is constructed from the spare feet from our bathroom scales, sprayed with a very shiny silver which I gave a matt coat to and I am in a process of glazing with a light sepia tone to alter it's base colour.

Paul

P.s. Here is another I have been working on....

Congratulations to all that participated and those that finnished. Heres my contribution.

Its the Classic Fort Duqesne bust of Robert Newton in his famous portraying of Long John Silver in the Movie Treasure Island based on the Richard Louis Stephenssns novel with the same name. One of my favourite novels and Movies.

Heres the kit



And here is the finnished piece. I do admin that the pictures could have been better. Too much light.

Guys, I'm really really sorry for the delay in awards and my latest lack of presence on the forum.
Situation at home and at work keeps me far away from the forum, from the pc at all and lately even from painting (my models and figures are stored in the boxes somewhere in the basement (so is my Vader costum) and for the moment I don't even have a place for my hobby)
I'll do my best to give you your awards today or tommorow.

Once again: I've very sorry for the current situation...
I hope you all will forgive me!

Thank you, as well!

I think that most of understand that family and work sometimes can take a heavy toll upon us keeping us away from the hobby longer than we would like.
