    Apr 21, 2009, 1:09 AM - WIP: Darth Maul Bust #1

    Just got started on painting up a Darth Maul bust for Mirax. This will be pretty much the first thing I have ever painted. Being severely color blind, I am a bit worried about getting some of the details right (supposing I even have the skill to do the painting). So far, it is looks good thanks to a very good base.

    It's the one that Cyberman did, isn't it?

    You're doing a great work on it, I think the colours look spot on. IMHO the best one ever painted is the Gino's one. I say that because you should look at his pics for better reference.

    Well done Art, can't wait to see it finished, Mirax willbe really happy with it

    Yes it is and yes, Gino did an amazing job on his for sure. I doubt I can match it as this is my first time painting pretty much anything, but we will see how it goes. Here is a slight update.

    I can't wait to see more, well done Art! Just a Q, does it come "skin colored" or you have applied a skin color before the black and red paint?

    Another project to add to my "to do" list! The skin texture looks amazing on that bust, and your paint is coming along wonderfully!!

    It comes slightly off-white. I did paint it a fleshtone before painting on the tattooing.

    I can see a subtle hint of the flesh around the eyes, looking solid Art!

    It is really amazing what ppl are doing. Very good job. I would love to do a bust myself, but I guess my parents would not like to have it in their house haha.

    Art, are you going to add the piercing on the ear, as the actor had? I think that it gives to the bust a nice touch, also to the character

    You gotta add the stud! That is what makes this bust even more awesome than it already is!

    Look at my avatar! I have felt in love with the Maul costume, and it's all your fault! Also Gino & Cyberman for his costume/bust!


    Well, what can be do? If it's done, it's done

    Very nice progress. Keep it up. At first the red look too light and orangy, but with more and more of the black pattern painted in it really looks just about right.
