And so we begin! So I settled down to watch my Kirill video and try my hand at painting in his style… Here is my experience.. Let’s start at the very beginning (which, as they say is a very good place to start*) and as is to be expected, I started with the primer. This … More Highlander part 1 – his face!

This bust by Alkemy/Kraken was my entry for the large scale (54mm and above) category in the Crystal Brush competition at Adepticon.
