    Hey Alex!

    He is looking really good. I like the stark contrast on the field gray. One thing, maybe you could paint the white piping in a gray and then highlight it with white, that way it would look a little more interesting and less mono tone.

    Thanks for the big pictures, it really allows you to see the details and the brush strokes. I know some people dont like big pics but I am a sucker for them!

    Keep up the good work.

    Dear Alex, I am with Gray in term of the size of the pic.

    I believe the figure is not completed yet as the boots are not painted. By then, maybe some dust color on the knee, boots and strategic spots will enhance the figure.

    regards :)

    Hey Alex..........I have to agree too......the smaller pic gives a better idea and makes the painting you've done more realistic than to see the super large pics that make the figure look 1/4 scale. I have seen so many pics of super enlarged figures that are absolutely stunning when you see them in person as compared to the oversized pics posted.

    Alex, Very nice job on the figure. I love the sculpting on this one, it probably paints itself.~Gary

    Dear Alex,

    In photoshop it will be good to save you picture under 'save for web'. Once you have click that, you should set the image size to the desired size and also the quality of your JPEG file. I believe you have not done that.

    Cropping the pic only cut out the undesired part of the pic, it does not reduce the picture size.

    Hope that the above help.

    regards :)
