    Doing this one for a collector in Denmark. I created the battle damaged skin on this guy with my dremel. He didn't want a plain Jane Arnold

    Mottling stages are VERY realistic looking. I love seeing your threads on these Arnies!

    Very realistic skin tone - looks like real skin - and nice progress so far.

    I would however suggest to alter the shape of the inner eye corner near the nose. That pinkish flap seems to be way too exaggerated - it could do with a little trimming down, which would also show more of the white of the eye in that area.

    From the title of the thread I was sorta expecting to see the character from the cut scene, with beret and all.

    WOW that hair is really great for a wig. Did you cut it Steve?

    Yeah I cut it. Unfortunately they don't make "Terminator" wigs, so the standard Gregory wig has to do.

    I'm not saying this to be mean but I think the skin color looks great but the scars.....not so much. They look fake, maybe too much red (blood) around the wounds. Maybe you could add another color onto it to make it less reddish.

    The eyes look great and your skin tones get better with every paint job you do. :thumbsup

    I would really consider scrapping the stick on eyebrows you use on your busts though. I appreciate that it's a much quicker/easier way to go, but given the good paint jobs you do, they bring the look of the finished piece down. Especially on an Arnie bust, where his eyebrows should be really heavy and thick. Unfortunately, sticking on individual strands/clumps of hair to build up the eyebrows looks MUCH better, even though it's a royal pain and very time consuming.

    I'd also consider cutting his hair shorter and gelling it lightly. I've done it on this bust, with this wig, in the past and it makes a huge difference. :thumbsup

    I've never really hand laid eyebrows before. Not sure how that would turn out. I'd probably prefer them sculpted over that. But hey I have to learn sometime right? I've handlaid a moustache and beard on a Jack Sparrow and that took FOREVER!! I swore never to do that again. LOL If I did that every time, I would have to charge much much more. I try to stay affordable to the mid range collectors who can't pay Howard Senfts prices.
