Hello, I just finished this figure. It is painted with enamel and oil and for the first time I tried out Goldens transparent acrylics. Pretty much same as the box art (not very creative I know). Comments welcome and appreciated.
Thanks
Steve

Nice Rob, the leather is very effective, and the blue is well done.

hey Steve:

The no show pix was definitely worth the wait. The
latest pix is Fine work.

You know a dude could lose his haid over such
nice quality painting. . . . eh? :-) :-) :-)

Looks good, but this is one of the rare cases where at least a little blood/spatter would be called for.

I like it Steve, you have done well with some difficult colours to paint. My only comment would be perhaps to add some more defining shadow/outlining - especially around the boots/laces/belts etc. Good job on the flesh tones. I too find myself seldom have the guts to deviate too far from the box art!
Cheers

Thanks everyone, I appreciate the time and effort for the comments and for fixing the link to the pic. Not sure what went wrong there.
