Young Miniatures - SS-Schütze, LSSAH, Ardennes 1944

_
You can say that I'm really "Busted" for this month of September as I side-track once again from the SS-Brigadeführer sculpt to finish painting another bust from Young Miniatures.
I suppose the main source of joy in painting a bust is that it truly allows one to focus their attention on what I deem as perhaps the "most interesting" aspect of the human figure, i.e. the head and shoulders. It seems that anything beyond this region is mostly regarded as a chore; which also fundamentally explains why there are so many half painted full figures residing in our cabinets as well.


Selamat Hari Raya,

Calvin

Hi Calvin

I've been admiring your works for quite a while, and this one's no exception. Beautiful paintjob as always. I like the tones you used on the face.
