After finishing up my unscarred T3 bust, I knew I had to have Arnie with some battle scarring, and managed to pick up this great Stage 4 bust. Another chance to do some skin tones. :)

Bust primed, then endoskull sections hand painted with Humbrol silver, then masked off and spray painting with Halfords Chrome:



Skin tones applied. All done with a paintbrush. I used 5 different fleshtones produced by Warhammer, plus cream and blue/grey from Humbrol:



Blood applied:



And one with some spare cheap plastic dolls eyes in place to check out the look. I have just ordered correct glass eyes that match Arnie's, so these will be replaced when they arrive:



Any tweaks needed, feel free to give constructive feedback. :thumbsup

Next up will be the wig and eyebrows. I have the gregory wig already. And I'll need to be careful, as this is what can make or break these busts.

Great skin tones! The only thing is Arnie's eyes aren't blue. More of a hazel green.

Yep, got that covered. :)

I gotta say your paintwork makes it look like silicone. I thought it was a translucent resin at first. Really really nice work.

Thanks guys. I'm really pleased with how he turned out.

And yes, most of it is the citadel paints. Though sadly they have just changed their whole paint range and elf flesh and dwarf flesh (the two best skin tones they do) have been discontinued and replaced with other shades that don't work as nicely.

To reiterate what everyone else has been saying, these are some of the finest skin-tones I've seen on ANY bust, let alone a resin bust. Simply, utterly incredible. :eek

And THIS:

I don't own an airbrush. It's all done by applying paint with a brush and then smoothing it/rubbing it in with a finger.
...takes this piece to an astronomically, unprecedented level. My mind is blown. :eek :eek :eek :eek

I'm not ever going to be a bust painter, but I would LOVE to see a tutorial of how this kind of result is accomplished.

BRAVO. :thumbsup :thumbsup

OK, I've pretty much got him finished now.

I got the gregory wig glued down and the damaged section cut out (being sure to get the front of the hairline in the correct place for Arnold, compared with movie stills):


Admittedly, he looks terrible here.

Then I cut the hair:



Then I used some of the cut off hair to build the temple areas forward more, and used hairgel to style the wig:



Since this last photo, I have added the eyebrows (gluing on clumps of cut up wig-hair at a time), eyelashes (stuck on individually) and grey T-shirt. I will post up completely finished pics when his new correctly-coloured eyes arrive...
