Ok, so maybe I'm a bit behind, but I just learned about a new film from one of my favorite directors, Ridley Scott. This one stars Russell Crowe as Robin Hood and if it's half the movie Gladiator is, it'll be great. It seems promising from what I've read. I believe it's due for release in May 2010. Cate Blanchett is also co-starring. Woohoo!

Here are a few new shots of this bust. Having a great time on this one. I definately have to do more fantasy pieces. I used oils on the flesh to smooth out the acrylic shading and highlighting that I did first. It made for some added depth the the skin and a nice bit of sheen that is more realistic than just the acrylics. I'll need to experiment with this technique on a more human shade. I wasn't sure about the red sleeves, but quite like the effect with the green. Something floral looking about it which sort of suits the subject.
