Stunning work Nige, just brilliant. Have always marveled at figure painting and you seem to be all over this, the next level.

Cheers

Thanks Martin,

I've been away for so long my projects are still in a big queue. Strange because ive got this on my work bench right now. I'm working on the facial hair and the skin highlights.

Hope to post more later as i have surface primer drying, which takes forever. I know you can add Klear but i want a good solid finish.

Okay, so first part to the facial hair is to lay down a solid jet black, this will give me a base to build up colours with inks and acrylic drybrushing. This is going to look messy but once done I have the bases down on the flesh to highlight and shade, which is a great start.



This should be fun...I've feathered some of the black and I've used a no.2 brush (heavy),
One thing I do like is this shows that the base colour for the cap is a slightly different black. I've used Nato Black by Tamiya which has hints of grey/green and blue which allows me to highlight with any of those colours.

Looking at the photos I take are a great way to see imperfections. I've made either side of his facial hair to be different. When you shave not either side of your face is the same, this is due to you being either left handed or right handed.....it also adds character to the face.

He reminds me of Captain Black from the Mysterons. [wink]

A few hours on this and I'm happy with the results so far. I love the Life Colour flesh set. The hair has had a dark brown heavy drybrush, with medium and light drybrushes. I followed that by a light grey and pure white drybrushing.
Flesh tones are starting to take shape.





I now have to mix two washes, once the whole model is dry. One to blend the hair, and one to blend the flesh.

Here's an update after some washes, still needs a bit of a facial. Taken 2 under differing light conditions to check shadows.



Tom Cruise?

This one has me wanting to do another one. ...and here it is.



Looks really good, and fantastic detail.

Brad Pitt or John Travolta?

Thanks for looking.

I enlarged one of the photos above because it's quite a moving picture. I've shown this to a lot of friends and they all said the same thing. The crewman looks as if he has tears in his eyes and a far away look as if remembering about someone he's lost in action. It's a one in a million shot and I had to share it with you all.



I doubt if I could ever paint something like that again. I feel like I've painted a soul behind those eyes.

Edit: I have to correct the left eye a little.

Sorry I can't put any photographs up at the moment as I have used matt, satin and high gloss varnish on the model and is covered to avoid little critters landing on it. I love using different varnish types on a figure, the eyes high gloss and the skin matt....perfect combo.

I'm also going to try something I've never tried before. I'm going to do some drybrushing with varnishes!


I've given the base two coats of gloss varnish and just left it as a brown colour. It should look very good against the brass badge.
So checking the box I've suddenly realised I haven't done the binoculars yet, so no early night for me.

Well that's the model completed and I'm very pleased the way it has turned out.

I've enjoyed every part of this build and will definitely do more of these figures.

Until the next one, thanks for looking in.
