Bust – 1:9 scale

Warrior of the North

Another big bust. This is a 1:8 scale (slightly bigger than the typical 1:9) and created by Andra Miniatures. To continue the learning process, I chose this bust as it is sold in a nice box that includes a nice DVD with the video tutorial that shows most of the painting process. I still have a lot to learn of course, but I am very proud of the outcome as I think I started learning doing the glazings. Doing glazes is, in principle, a simple thing, but in practice it is not at all as this requires controlling the amount of water/paint mix. What I learnt is the "the less, the better!

My first "big bust", that is a bust with a scale about 1:9 (200mm). This is not exactly the typical "military miniature character" and similarly to the previous pieces, I decided to paint this due to the availability of an outstanding and extremely detailed video tutorial by Ben Komets. I strongly suggest you to give a look at the whole series available here https://www.youtube.com/user/paintingbuddha/ This series includes many other tutorials, although most of them are about fantasy miniatures. Learning by watching is an extremely effective way of learning, and in this case I really learnt a lot, so... kudos to Ben to provide such good explanations. And if you want to know more about Ben's painting style, I also suggest…
