German Bust

This is guy completes the German MG34 team that I purchased last year. I tried some new techniques on this guy, like using oils for the coat and face. I'm not sure I like the effect, but at least it is complete.


  1. He looks very lifelike - just like he stepped out of an episode of Band of Brothers. I don't think I'd be brave enough to use oils on a human figure, but if you don't take risks, you don't learn.

    1. The surprising part was that the oils looked smooth initially but dried a little splotchy. I had to use thinner after the fact to even them out.

  2. Yep - that's one heck of a job.

  3. I appreciate the comments guys. I guess I'll take him to the show, flaws in all.

  4. Nice John ... I'm looking forward to see your stuff in person! Always cool seeing everything up close and getting to pick out all the details the cameras miss. Only a few days now man 8)
