WOW! Thanks for the coments. Speed was not the option from the beginning (a good figure, especially a bust takes soe time), but I had loads of fun painting it and although it seems to be not the case: the metal parts were pretty simple to do.
Is it allowed to throw more than one bust in the GB btw? There is a certain bust I want to repaint since some months now, cause Im not too happy with her. She looks a bit flat-toned, to be honest.
Yes, you heard right - its a FEMALE. Good to have a female bust around, until now the GB pretty male-orientated.
Maybe some of you remember her: its the "Pacific Belle" aka "The Geisha".

Wow, Lucas, this is fantastic, absolute stunning job you did here!! The details are great but what are they worth when not bringing to life like you did? The colour composition fits in perfect and the accuratesse in painting is expeptional. Great work, Dude, absolute great work!
But back to you first picture: The priming with black and white? You airbrush the black on and misted the white over? Or did you drybrush the white??
Its both from a rattle can, the white gives highlights as needed and is simply slightly sprayed over. It wont have an effect for the metal parts, but for the face and scarf it works simply perfect. ;)Furthermore I dont use such brands as Citadel, Vallejo black primer etc, but car primer and stuff - more simple to buy, and in most cases better recipe (but that doesnt mean that brand products are bad - theyre more expensive and I save money where I can, it will buy me more figures to train on ).
This is top shelf stuff mate, man I like the feathers so much ! Featherlight feathers, stunning how you achieved this look ! The metal parts the same, so cool ! When I see this kind of work I know I have a long way to go in Figureland or Bust country ! Congrats !
