Hey folks.

I started working on painting a Tony Barton head sculpt I've had kicking around for a couple of years, first time ever attempting one of his sculpts, hoping to do it justice!
Here it is after getting some washes on to cover the cast and block out the colouring.

I'm using acrylics, run of the mill dollar store/ walmart brands.
I was able to get a decent chunk of painting done while my kid was down for a nap.

I got the eyes whited-in, and stubble started, too.

Not entirely sure what the head will actually go to as of yet, but it's good practice. I may be having 2-4 commission figures upcoming using TB heads.


This is not 1/6 (half that scale, around 1/10 or 1/12) but I also finished this guy during that nap. Lemme tell ya, doing eyes on that scale can be a pain in the butt!

Amazing! I wish I could paint so well.

Aw, thanks a lot guys, I really appreciate that! Painting has always been trouble for me, especially being colourblind. The more you do the better you get, though.

That is really nice work.

Cheers,

Peter.

Okay, I have to ask. Being color-blind, what do you see? Any colors at all? My Dad was color blind, but only for certain colors. How do you paint from dark to light? I know I’m probably being too nosy, but I find it fascinating how people can over-come limitations like that and still achieve good results.

Heh well thankfully I'm only partially colourblind, what's called a Red/Green deficiency, but if affects everything in the spectrum.

My grandpa and one of his brothers were both totally black and white colourblind though.
My little brother and myself both have a red/green deficiency.


I took traditional animation in college, which included a lot of traditional painting and colour theory.

But basically, I ask questions...but some people can abuse that and tell the wrong colours as a joke.

In figure painting, I read other people's tutorials and follow what they list as colours and their steps.
I try to to keep my painting pretty basic, however if there's no one to ask I'll look up references and colour mixing recipes and try my best to get it to where I think it should be.

In the words of Mr. Spock:

Fascinating!


Thanks for sharing. I'm always curious about that. I know my Dad's second (ex) wife used to have to bundle his socks together, because he couldn't differentiate between black, brown, blue. I didn't even know that much about him until I was probably 15 or 16.

My pleasure, happy to!

Heh, reminds me, my grandpa used to have a raspberry patch. He'd pick little baskets full quite frequently, however my grandma would have to go through and get rid of the ones that weren't quite ripe. I'm not sure if he picked by feel or just whatever he could see, haha.

Little update. Refined the face a little, starting on the eyes.

Ahh the eyes...the smallest part can be the biggest pain especially with my broken eyesight and shaky hands !
So far looking so good though - I dont think you'll have anything to worry about tbh
looking forward to more updates soon !

Heh thanks man! So far they are a lot easier than my smaller Star Wars toys, so that's nice.

Also I think I've found what I'm gonna do with the head, gonna re-vamp my 'Nam Medic!

Looking good so far. I gave up trying to do eyes by hand since there are those iris decals out there.

Ooh yeah I forgot all about those eye decals!

I took my time and used a brush. Think it turned out okay for my first time.
Here he is pre-sealing.
[WIP] First Tony Barton head sculpt repaint. 41636651330_5f1194e6ef_c

And post-sealing, with some floor polish used for gloss on the eyes, mouth, and some sweat areas.
[WIP] First Tony Barton head sculpt repaint. 41636651290_811d07df5e_c

And fully assembled.

He's on an old Sideshow body modded to accommodate the Barton neck. The uniform is an old ACE one, which was so terribly sunbleached, it was almost white. I sprayed it with some OD spray paint, gave it a boil in some salt water and it was all set.

It worked out beautifully with the finished kitbash!

Absolute Great. Don´t forget Friends.... the pictures are not 1:1 . They are enlarged. So the real paint job looks better.  Love the Pictures. Not to have a Tony barton sculpt is a scandal, after watching Your pictures i really need one Very Happy

maybe Mr. Barton can do some sculpts with Silicon ? Will be easy to do some mods with that

Heh thanks! The sculpt paints up so nicely. I'm sure you could really kick butt with one. You could always try reaching out to TB and seeing if he'd do some in silicone...couldn't hurt!

This was definitely good practice, for me. Now if my buddy can decide which TB heads he wants for the commissions I'm gonna do, I could put in an order and get 'em painted up.

Looks good, PM. He kind of reminds of a young Peter Falk.

Nice job!

I find Darren Carnall on Patreon to be very helpful and inspirational. It'll cost you $5 a month to see the full tutorials, but, it's well worth it. Here's a sample of one he did:



Enjoy!

CHEERS!
