Edward Plantagenet "The Black Prince" 1330-1376

My latest paint figure "The Black Prince" 1330-1376 Edward of Woodstock, Prince of Wales. 75mm metal figure painted with acrylic's. This figure was a big ambitious protect for me, time consuming and most definitely a labor of love. Most of the figure had to be painted and assembled as went. But it all came together in the end. I enjoyed every hour I was building it and painting it. Once I could see it coming together near the end it got more fun.

Chevalier Italian XVI Century

This is my work in process, I have been at this bust for a long time. I think it is very close but still refining. I do believe it the most detailed bust I will ever have a chance to paint. Happy with the progress so far. Chevalier Italian XVI Century, 1/6 scale bust made by Le Cimier, France. Sculpted by JM Danel I do not know of the sculptor but he deserves a medal for his work on this bust.Finest detail I have ever seen on a bust.
The casting was also excellent.
