Karl von Fasbender Bust Completed

I spent the weekend completing this box art for Ulrich Puchala's kit of Karl von Fasbender. What at first might appear as a simple subject without much color soon shows it can be an interesting subject for the painter. The fun little details were the shako crest with it's enameled Bavarian crest and the challenge of realistically representing the glasses hanging at the front of his uniform.

I really enjoyed this kit and plan to paint many more from this wonderful line of busts. Thanks for the opportunity Ulrich! Now on to Zeppelin!
