    Prince John of Eltham

    Post  Ray on Thu Oct 29, 2009 6:53 pm

    Hi to all Shocked

    Here's what I'm currently working on for the upcoming C.S.M.S show in Catania this December from the 4th till the 6th.

    Pegaso's 54mm Prince John of Eltham IMHO is one of the classics of Pegaso Models and has withstood his ground some 12/13yrs (I stand up for correction here) after it was released. Here is Adriano Laruccia at his best.

    This will be my 2nd Prince John after 11yrs and when I finish this one, I'll post some pics of my earlier attempt which is now at my brother's, as I gave it to him way back in 1998. Prince John was also my first ever 54mm and had always vouched that "I will paint him again" Twisted Evil

    He's been standing in line for some paint splashing since the end of 2007 Sad so when the prospect of the Catania show emerged at the begining of this October, he was the most eligible candidate for the reason above even though I seriously contemplated on Romeo's Scottish Piper and Ghulam Knight respectively, they were set aside and re boxed as the time frame was too short for a cleanup, construction and painting Suspect

    Hope the pics are a slight improvement on the recent CRAP I shot, and hope to keep adjusting/improving with the next photo batch Sad

    Just a small update........I kept not liking the lower lip and upper chin area, I knew I "short cut" sort of due to the very small area there, but that was just a senseless excuse and I knew it Evil or Very Mad also that sort of wedge between the eyebrows was "missing", kind of giving this exceptional face a bland sort of look so this morning I tweaked these areas.......no more nightmares I hope Twisted Evil

    The first 3 pics are "before" Sad
    The second 3 pics are "after" Laughing

    Warm Regards to all........

    Coming out great and photos not bad at all, only when you enlarge these are hazy, are you taking in a small dpi format?

    Isma one slight cmment, but though this come out when you enlarged the pic, between the eyes the shadow on top the nose looks too dark, might be the picture and angle creating a shadow, but the guy looks like he has a bridge of hair between the two eyebrows, mhux ma jistax ikun imma ma jkunx sexy hekk hux IMO

    Otherwise the contrast looks as if blended with oils, bravo again!

    Good move on the lower lip!

    Amazing what a stroke of a 'ooo' brush can do! He looked African before now he looks European.
