    The Three Titans!!!

    Post  Ray on Sat Mar 29, 2014 10:41 pm

    These 3 Busts, whom I named The Three Titans :)are currently on my Painting Work Bench as they are being done for Three Very Dear Old Workmates of mine, with whom I shared some GREAT MOMENTS in the "other life", that is, during my 7years Catering prior to my Police Service :)where we ALL Three worked at the same time at La Dolce Vita Restaurant, in St.Julians. I vowed to GET THEM READY, BEFORE ANYTHING (GOD FORBID PLEASE) happens to EITHER one of us & I will regret it, if I won't be the 1st one to GO DOWN SmileSmileSmile

    So without any further ado, I will explain what they will each be in the Original Manufacturers' respective photos Smile

    Stay tuned for more in the coming DAYS SmileSmileSmile



    1/10th Scale of Young Miniatures' bust of Captain Jack, from the film Master & Commaner...he will be depicted as he is, but ,with the nameplate reading Royal Navy Captain, Geatano Spiteri 1806. Getano Spiteri is a Seaman by birth & nature as he is the son of Men of the Seas & he has sailed some high & rough seas in his heydays  I'm sure he'll love this Ancestor of his who bore his same name way back in 1806  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy 


    Pegaso Models 1/10th Scale bust of a Spanish Armada Admiral...he will be depicted as he is, but named Jean de La Vallette 1565 as David Caruana, believes he is bred from the Grand Master's Blood Line  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy 


    Young Miniatures' 1/10th scale Bust of a Spartan...He's the ONLY one to undergo a Conversion/Transformation as he will be depicted as Poseiden/Neptune/Nettuno, the Greek God of the Seas  as requested by Daniel Cauchi the son of Michael  Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

    Just my opinion Ray. Love the bust itself but not the bebbux on the base. Somehow they don;t look good, you make the rest of the project look a bit babyish. Just my opinion i repeat. The beauty of the bust calls for a more serious base.

    Brian, you may be right as I somehow feel some of your "thoughts"  pale  pale  pale 

    But.......there is NO TURNING BACK now as I am running out of time & keeping in mind he's gonna be a GIFT & I'm sure the beholder would look at the bust as a NOVELTY, which after all is the way I TRIED & TRY to see things.......not always RIGID & BORING & UNIFORM  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad 

    He is MY VERSION of Poseidon as I said  Twisted Evil  Twisted Evil  Twisted Evil  I ended up with surplus of putty on 3 or 4 occasions as I tackled the hairdo & beard  Laughing  Laughing  Laughing & TOYED with the SEA SNAILS on the "seabed" &, the "StarFish & ShellFish Crown"  pale  pale  pale  & kind of "liked" or rather "I pitied throwing away the surplus putty & the effort & time I consumed" & WENT AHEAD & EMBEDDED them FOREVER  lol!  lol!  lol! 

    ISSA LI HEMM HEMM Bri  lol!  lol!  lol!  lol!

    OK as long as you are not offended by my criticism. It is not the stuff in his hair that put me off but the stuff on the base.

    Not at ALL my dear Bro Brian  I love you I love you I love you 

    You have every right to disagree & we all AGREE to DISAGREE don't we  Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

    He's all painted up & ready, but will reserve the photo session for later when they are ALL READY  bounce  bounce  bounce 

    Wanted to get him out of the way sort of as he was the LEAST rigid & uniform & could go about employing an "unrestricted hand" like painting the "whites" of the eyes BLACK instead of WHITE to give him a SINISTER look, something which I learnt from a Fantasy Painting Book & thought of doing it since he's the GOD of the SEAS & thus dwells in the ABYSS of the SEAS  king  king  king

    LOL ... enjoying this debate, though I understand that this subject is not a 'historical' figure I feel Ray let out his imaginitive flair on this one to be more artistic and continued to blend into the base ... [we already had a debate re varnishes about this haven't we ...] ... different colour and material somehow sometimes distract the overall impact ... so we await the final session ... keep them coming, I am more on the look out for Jean Smile

    Time to hijack this thread for the good of everyone and especially to maintain the high level of our modeling. I do not think anyone should refrain from criticism. What good is the forum if all we write are nice words and no critique whatsoever? When one thinks that something is not right and should or can be done better, it should be stated out. NO ONE should be offended by diverse opinion or constructive criticism if it is put forward politely. That, I think is the way to be more successful. Anyone who gets offended should not post on any thread. The main reason for posting should be for others to see what you are doing and possibly gain something from it, to check out your work and also comment. If we are as mature as we always say we are, then criticism should be welcome and a way to better our level. End of hijack story.
