"You're a daisy if you do." Part 2

Well, if you hadn't guessed who the character is, I'll let you off the hook. The man and the pose come from the movie 'Tombstone' and the character is 'Doc' Holiday, played by the actor Val Kilmer. Not an exact likeness, and the pose is slightly exaggerated from the movie still, with how the legs are spread and back arched, but it gives a good sense of defiance. I'm really happy with how the folds turned out, so it helps to have some great pictures to go by as a guide.

"You're a daisy if you do." Part 1

This is a project I've wanted to do for YEARS. If your a Western movie fan, you may guess from the title what film the subject is based on.

Lincoln Bust

Lincoln is for the most part finished. What a wonderful sculpture, but a pain in the ass to paint. The detail on his features can be so subtle, that I was constantly finding something new to paint, even when I swore I just hightlighted/shaded that area! I think putting him aside for a bit, will give me a new perspective for the final touches later. The figure, by the way, is painted all in acrylics...Practically all the black and white colors in my collection, from cool to warm, are being used on him.
