Venus bust by Artisan Guild, included with the AMAZONS! Kickstarter
Skin was a base coat of MSP IMEF Olive, layered up with an airbrush through the MSP Bronzed Skin triad. I added some red and green to the mix for the lips. Hair is MSP Walnut Brown/Harvest Brown/Tanned Leather. Eyes are Ghost White/Leather White with thinned P3 Brown Ink for the iris. Toga is MSP HD Tusk Ivory, shaded with VMA Earth Brown and some other darker neutral browns. Highlighted with Linen White. Gold accents are Pathfinder Katapesh Gold, highlighed with Vallejo Metal Medium. The pillar is Tuck Ivory with Secret Weapon Dark Sepia.
This was a fairly quick job, though I did stick around to finish her off. The hair in particular I didn’t spend much time on, though it actually looks better in the photos than I expected. The actual purpose of this bust was twofold – 1) to practice painting on a bust that didn’t cost me $60, and 2) to experiment with a new skin color. I was aiming for Latino skin, but went a bit too light and ended up in the Mediterranean area (which is what the Bronzed Skin triad is intended for, so that makes sense).
