CAESAR HEBREW WARRIOR SAMSON.

Hello all,This is another older piece of work.Every now and then its nice to have a change of subject,painting everything green or brown can do your head in after a while.Caesar Hebrew warriors They do not exactly call this figure Samson but its a bloody good guess that's who he is meant to be.
This was a simple project,(well its not the Sistine chapel to be honest).De-greased him,removed him from his base,glued him to a big red cap (like a big thimble)to let my sausage like fingers hold the figure.A quick undercoat and a wash of flesh and and sand for the loin cloth.The hair was one of the most fiddly bits to do,use of a magnifying glass was needed for the ends(split ends) and red bits.All this was given a wash of burnt umber and a little weathering powder.
He was mounted on a bit of finest Dorset stone and one of my back drop pictures put up for the final pictures.I have a stash of background pictures because I live in England and the weather in cobblers,so a nice sunny day or blue sky is only a sheet of A4  away.This was a very quick effort for a sunday night and is something different.I will get round to painting him some mates (or foes,or even Delilah)one day.

Looks like he needs a haircut!...No, just a moment that wouldn´t work would it? :-)
This one I really like...the simple set up really makes it, anymore and it would have not shown him off to his best.
Cheers
