    This is gonna be fantastic Im sure, and Im looking forward to seeing the finished result. How long have you used Jo Sonjas paints??? I have a friend who uses nothing else, Im still a Vallejo fan but sometimes...... :)
    Have never used a dark background, always a light neutral colour like buff or Iraki sand........looking on with interest....

    Slainte,

    Thanks Paul, the face is such a great one, depicts the youth of the drummer beautifully, just begs to be painted.

    Super start John. Great face - has the essence of a frightened or shocked teenager.

    Cheers
