This is on my workbench now, Life's Miniatures Rommel Bust.
This work will get some articles for the Michigan Toy Soldier Blog later on, but I wanted to show some WIP also. The kit itself is amazing as you would expect from Life Min.
Primed the bust with Mission Models Black Primer :
Now went for Leather, using Vallejo and Abteilung's 502 oils. After the first step is dry, will work on light and shadows for the coat.
Base flesh tone (Tamiya Flesh) :
Now, Oils were applied for a base flesh tone. my workbench has a powerful warm light and my phone saturates the photo a little bit, also making it warmer than it is actually, but we can have an idea.
Now, light & shadow done.
Also did a very subtle recent shaved beard and hair. Next is lips and eyebrows.
Lips are done now :
Comments are welcome :-)
