Okay Pete you're on the right track. That looks good!

Don't forget that this is an experimental process.

I tried a trick Nigel suggested by edging silver with white and I like it. Well actually, I mixed white (60%) with silver (40%) to make a platinum silver and it turned out very well.

I can only advise you to continue the path you are on currently. Its serving you well.

It's very hard to capture the highlights as they are very subtle, but if you squint you can see them lol

Now I'm starting to paint in the details, a bit of red around the chest and knee, and blocking in the stock on the grenade launcher

I keep layering on the grey in really thin coats on the high spots, I want to try and make the leather look shiny without using varnish

It's really tough to highlight the black, but I'm quite happy with where it's heading, still a ton of detail painting to do, but I should finish it by the weekend

Thanks Mike !

I'm treading really softly so I don't overdo the high lighting, using white as a highlight on silver is a great idea
I might try it on the metal areas on this figure once the details are painted on

That's looking very nice. The khaki that you added in there, added that little bit of brown that comes to mind with a beat up leather jacket like that. Keep up the good work.

Cheers Kenny, I think it needs a little more Khaki on the edges of the belts and cuffs of the jacket.
It's tough as everything is so small
I am looking at these pics as I post them and thinking "why was I struggling to paint the details" everything looks much bigger in the pics lol
This figure is 54mm which is pretty much 1/32, I don't think I could go any smaller without the optivisor, I'm afraid to say age is taking it's toll on my close up vision

Be very careful with the white. Use an old dry brush, put a small amount of white on the brush, then on a piece of tissue brush it off. Drag it on your skin, if you don't see any use it on the model in one direction across the edges.

you need do no more to the jacket, if it looks good to you then stop.

I like the way you soved that Pete. Blue & grey. Brilliant. Slate Grey is exactly that. One dry brush of Slate grey, concentrating on the edges, followed by a light highlight of Light grey and a touch of white.

Good to see you didn't forget about the boots, nice one. [thumb]

Have to have more tests done, and stronger meds.Thanks for asking. Might ask the nurses if they have any methylated spirits going spare in their cupboard. Do you want me to ask if they have any insulated tin foil, don't want you getting a head cold.

btw how's the cave coming on?

Cheers for the advice Nigel I can imagine it would be easy to overdo the white, i would never had though of using white as a highlight for silver, but it really does add a little extra

The jacket looks good to the eye I think it just needs a little wear on the edges of the belts and cuffs, I will have a look at it in day light tomorrow, it is difficult to know when to stop

Hehe the boots did look too clean, I don't know what else to do to them to make them look like a different type of leather to the other parts

I hope you are feeling ok, fingers crossed the meds sort you out mate. Lol a winter tinfoil hat sounds perfect ! Winter is moving in up here and I could do with some warm anti ET headgear

Pete

PS

What's ET short for ?

















He's only got little legs

Omg, that's bad.

The boots, well have you got any MIG dried mud? If you have powders then rub them directly onto the paint, don't seal the paint with Klear, it will also make them look matt.

Lol ! It's not the greatest joke in the world

I have only got one of the MIG powders and it's Vietnam Earth, I ordered it online and didn't realise it would be red, I am planning to get some more at Telford though, they go on really nice

The grenade launcher strap got painted Khaki then a tiny bit of highlight with green grey

I used a tiny bit of umber wash here and there, and used a bit of pastel dust to ad a bit of grime on the boots and clothing

The effect of the pastels is subtle and doesn't photograph well, but it looks ok in hand

I found it really difficult to highlight the black clothing without overdoing it, I think it needs something else, but I can't work out what lol
So I'm calling it done

The base got a coat of alclad steel, then a dusting of jet exhaust for shadows

A silver pencil was used to highlight a little of the tread plate on the floor

A bit of orange and brown pastel dust

I painted yellow on the panels on the electric box to add a bit of colour

And added some stripes with a black pencil, I used a pencil instead of a sharpie as I wanted a worn look, I also added scratches with an 8b pencil
