  1. We all have talents! And yes, perhaps, some skills too. But it's only matter of some training. Glazes! Three days of work, because each layer (about 20) needs to dry before next one. Dwarf skin with white overall, then cadmium skin for more exposed parts of face and finally cadian fleshtone for merge everything and smooth the transitions.
  2. Thanks! Nuln oil again, this time with Drakenhof Nightshade (the color is black-blue) in deepest recesses. Marcin.
  3. Thanks Ray. Always doing my best. I repainted my shirt completely. It is not supposed to be blue, rather gray or khaki. Skarsnik green and light gray, then seraphim sepia: Same mixture (more gray this time) as a filter. Base color with black in the recesses. Wet mixed now. It's starting to look good. Greetings!
  4. I started with trucks and passenger cars in 1:24 scale, then some military stuff and one (1 )ship. I do not make airplanes because I do not have enough skills, they are better than me. I am currently painting busts and figurines. I think I'll stay There is nothing wrong with developing your passion in different directions. Whoever does not go forward, goes backward. In Poland, we have a proverb: with only one mouse hole, a cat dies. Greetings.
  5. Thank you guys for your comments. I personally am a great fan of Rusty Lake Cube series, and I'm very happy that this character is on my shelf now. Mor about RL and the cubes in his hands: https://rusty-lake.fandom.com/wiki/Rusty_Lake_Wikia
  6. Hi! The hat is a separate piece, and of course, the shape of brim is wrong, I need to improve this. I'll make it from a piece of cardboard soaked wit cyanoacrylate glue but every style has its own shape of brim, so I wanna know what style it is, to make a proper stencil. Rodeo or cutter maybe? Or maybe I'll make it using my imagination... More here: Britt Magnificent Seven WIP Marcin.
  7. And the style shown in my pics is...?
  8. Hello mates! I am currently painting a bust of Britt (Magnificent Seven) and need some advice on his hat. I have to build it from scratch, because the one proposed by the manufacturer is not compatible with the original. What style is a cowboy hat? Cattleman? Rodeo? Cutter? Nobody can help me here in Europe, so you guys are my last hope. Thanks!
  9. ... that is James Coburn. Rather reticent, but accurate. Except for the situation when he aimed at the horse and hit the rider . I'll have a little more to do with this. I will have to make the brim of the hat from GS, because the shape is completely different. I will have to spray it with the primer, because the face also seems a bit too square, too masive by te jaw - though I might be wrong. Painting can do a lot, and screw up a lot. Shirt very nicely detailed! Enjoy!
  10. After more than a year - the third. A fourth, actually. Because Harry Luck is the second in the team. Chris Adams mentions him when recruiting Bernardo to the group. Remember what O'Reilly replied to the remark that he was broke in the chopping scene? "Nah. I'm doing this because I'm an eccentric millionaire. Do you remember in what movie with Charles Bronson there was a similar scene of chopping wood? This bust gave me a hard time, washed and painted again several times, I was extremely reluctant to paint the shirt, some folds on it, in my opinion, unnecessary. I couldn't find the color for a long time. It got to the point that the resin was starting to decline and I had to glue small defects with plasticine. Similarity ok, according to the film frame. I have seen it painted differently and I am pleased with the result. Britt's on his way.
  11. As usual, I have the most trouble with shading hat. Basically no shading. I don't like large and flat surfaces. Well, I think I can call him done. The gallery soon. And the family portrait , three ready, five left.
  12. A small progress with skin tones. I had to mark the eyes because it was hard to set the contrast on the rest of face. Keep safe and don't believe everything the television says
