Kudos to Michael Lee of Miniature Art Studio

I would like to extend a shout out to Michael Lee of Miniature Art Studio for keeping the Singapore flag flying with his remarkable tally of a Gold and a Bronze medal at the 2017 World Expo in Chicago last July. Michael is in my opinion perhaps one of the brightest stars of the figure modelling scene in Singapore and has been consistently churning out outstanding pieces in these recent years. Well done Myker!

Young Miniatures - Waffen SS Dispatch Rider, Ostfront 1944

Pleased to say that I am finally done with this piece. A very beautiful sculpt and a very nice subject to paint as well.  Pure white and black were not used directly on this piece. Taking a page from Cezanne's play book,  to depict white without the use of actual white paint, the illusion of intrinsic light had to be conveyed - i.e. the appearance of white under yellow and blue light. I personally find that this approach of painting is particularly effective for a bust as it helps to elevate the atmosphere and mood of the figure.
