First Id like to say sorry to all for the trouble with the busts - the Geisha had a bench accident (she lost her head) and it turned out that a remodelling of her necklace would be too difficult (anyways, thanks for the hint, Frank!).
Recently a "plan B" landed on my bench, so Ill give it a go - I recognized that AG started a similar project too, nice.
Yury Serebryakov is an incredible sculptor, and the bust was a real bargain. Not cheap but for what she is, it would have cost much more elsewhere... great. And it has tons of details to take care of - especially the fur. Ill leave the eye/nose protection shield off - just look at his face, would be a real pity to hide it.
Except for metal areas I use Vallejo and GW paints - as always.

I added a scratched nose protection, and painted the fur. It had been painted wet-in-wet, that means grey base coat, with brown washing while it was still wet. I let it dry, added another brown washing, then drybrushing with grey/light grey and white (decently!) followed.
Sorry to hear about the accident of your "Japanese Girl". Yes,Yury Serebryakov' works deserve all the consideration and you made a good job there (the eyes particularly looks excellent). Keep it on, my friend! Nicolae
