thanks, well due to illness I haven't done much until recently, last couple of weeks I have my second wind back,
heres a bit of a walkthrough on a killer klowns bust, this bust is interesting as its not my sculpt but taken from a casting of the movie mould, here we have a raw casting fresh from the mould
Image

after I glued on the ears and blended them in I started painting, it starts with a white basecoat
Image

then I start adding washes of colour to bring out the details
Image

after that I break out the airbrush and start adding details, heres the bust with the veining and noodling done and the eyes painted in
Image

heres the lips and nose done
Image

and finally the hair added all done
