“Glad to see you are creating two movie busts.”
I don’t know yet if that will be possible! For now it’s just an idea, mainly because of the long deadline, which would allow it.
I love that other bust of Rudger Hauer in Blane Runner, but there are other factors involved, so will have to see.
For now I’m starting with Lawrence of Arabia (should receive the bust next week, if everything goes right), but I still lack of some essential tools, including oils that I don’t have yet for the entire painting (I already have some, but not all that I need) .
Oils take a long time to dry, so usually working with them is by phases. Hence painting a bust with oils is usually a long time project.
“Dolf, hope you will show steps of how you create these. I am new to, and very interested in, this modelling genre.”
Yes, I intend to do that, create a WIP thread, as the painting goes.
Notice that I’m also absolutely new to this, I’m now learning, so it will be my first bust, and my first experience painting a whole figure with oils (I’ve used oils already, but only for flesh on some figures, and imitating leather, that’s it) .
Furthermore, I’ll probably be using a technique that is not the one more often used, so… will see…
