Czar Nicholas Painting Update..







Here are few more pics of the face after a bit more work done today. Most of the highlights are in and I've started adding some tones in the cheeks and eye area and the first shadow layers. This one is a challenge!

Czar Nicholas Painting




Just started painting the boxart for a future Michael Miniatures bust. This one is Czar Nicholas in 1/9th scale. It's a bit larger size which will demand even smoother transitions. Just starting the face with the first couple of highlighting steps done so far. Much to do....




12-15 Update

More Progress 12-14











Here is another update on Santa Ana. I've started the epaulettes from two round discs of sheet plastic with putty underneath to support the fringe detail that will be added later. I've also lowered the hairline a touch and done some work to the mouth area that I now like a bit better. Of course, the lace work continues.....

Santa Ana - APG Raffle Piece
















Here are a few first, and still rough, shots of the 200mm bust I'm sculpting for the last APG Show raffle prize winner, Randy Myers. Randy selected the subject and has also asked to paint the finished piece. This has turned into more of a collaborative project and one I'm very happy to undertake. Randy is a great painter and sculptor in his own right, so the pressure is on to deliver a nice piece. Still in the roughing in stage at this point, but coming along. Thanks for looking and more updates soon.

Montezuma and Cortes - Completed!







Hi! It's been a while, so here's an update. These are some pics of the Monty and Cortes pieces I finished the day before the Chicago Show. Pics of Cortes taken by Bob Sarnowski at the show! Also is one of the completed Joker bust I had at the show as well. Not sure who took the other pics, but thanks!
