    Hey Gang,

    I just finished up this private commission piece.

    Wesley Snipes as Blade

    A 1/1 Resin Cast Bust

    This was my very first attempt at an African American flesh tone.
    IÂ’m really happy with how he came out.

    The owner of this piece has a screen used costume for this character,
    and plans on putting him on display in her home.

    Thanks for Looking.

    Thanks Guys.

    I hand brushed the tats with black watercolor,
    then misted the fleshcolor over the top with
    the airbrush to help blend them in.

    I just want to step in here and thank Jeff for tackling this project for me. His paint up has far exceeding my wildest expectations. Every detail is perfect. I am just torn now. He looks so great I don't want to hide his eyes behind sunglasses ;)

    Thanks again Jeff.

    * that's nice work....the tattoos are amazing...the color on them is perfect...did you base the way they look on tattoos you have?...because the fade on them is incredible....they look like mine (not the design...but the color of the blackwork)...skott

    WOW Gang.

    Thanks for ALL the GREAT comments. :)

    The tats were a challenge. I used black watercolor paint to
    apply them. The great thing about watercolor is being able
    to remove them with a little water and retry. When you have
    them the way you want, spray them with a light coat of
    Dull Coat to seal them forever. Once I got all the tats done,
    I lightly misted over them with the flesh color in my airbrush,
    to blend them in.

    The hardest part was getting them the same on both sides, I did one
    side then held a mirror up to it to see them from the other side. B)

    Thanks Again Everyone.

    Excellent. It "pops" just enough to look artistic, and is realistic enough to make you do a double take. Great work.

    At the risk of repeating a lot of what everyone else has said, you really did a fine job. The skin creases in the neck shots look awesome (quite realistic). Of course the tattoos are awesome, as everyone has said. The skin tone is great too, especially given that its your first attempt at an African American tone. I'm thoroughly impressed by your talent. Keep up the great work.

    HOLY CRAP.....this arrived today. All I can say is THANK YOU Jeff. It looks more spectacular in person. See I told you there was a very specific reason I was waiting to have this piece done by you. Thanks again.

    I will post some pics of the whole blade once I mannequin him up.

    Hey Shannon.

    Good to hear he made it in one piece. :)

    Yes, please post pics of him when you get him set-up. B)

    It was a pleasure to paint him up for you, and I hope you enjoy
    him on display in your home.
