    Roman Busts

    Hi guys,

    These two busts were ready last December, in less then three weeks Evil or Very Mad and were starting to collect dust as they lined up for some photography so here they are Embarassed pale

    They are cheap local commisions, half price commisions infact, so both faces are 75% of my usual effort, while the rest is 50% of my usual effort Twisted Evil

    Not a bad bargain for their collector, who is still to collect them and pay up Sad since Good Friday lol!

    They are so beautiful Ray, i don;t know about the level of paintwork but it looks brilliant. How i wish i could paint half as good as that!! It is really brilliant. I LOVE Roman subjects.

    Since the original collector won't come up for these dudes after more than a year eluding me in futile words "dalwaqt nitlobomlok dawk ta".....in English for the benefit of our foreign brethren "I would soon be asking you to bring them over ok" (I mean he's already fooled me I know Shocked) but if I can help it he won't fool me again anymore Evil or Very Mad so I decided to move them up a notch, by tackling the armour & wolf/cat cat fur on both of them and the horse's plume on the Centurion, to make them look sweet enough to put them up on show & who knows who/what will be next for them Laughing
