    Finished the hat, finished the blue coat, except for the seams.
    I decided to go a little shy on the lights to keep this coat to a very dark blue.
    I painted the base color for the face, added some shadows and painted the eyes..... 20170609_222455.jpg 20170609_222500.jpg 20170609_222509.jpg

    Nice work Daniel.

    Good idea, a little suggestion is to go a bit darker with the shading to compensate. (y)

    Thanks mate, i was considering that last night, it is really hard to show up any lights when the uniform is so dark, obvikusly depends on the materiel of the coat.
    But these chaps were pristine on their appearence and , above all, this is an officer and they are not in campaign.
    I will have to aplly directly black on the creases.
    Best regards

    I have seen pictures of this beautiful uniform, some piics show it really dark blue, some pics show it as a Royal Blue.
    These 2 images show the Comte ( count ) de Moret , in 1773 before the change the vest to a white.
    The other pic is the Comte de Provence ( Future Louis XVIII). Screenshot_20170430-090937.png comte de provence 5.jpg

    I did some lights adding the base color ( black) plus a little bit of german grey , basic blue and re-touch the shades, but i think i will push the lights a little bit more.

    The combination of the colors on the uniform and the stark contrast with the jet-black horse make this an absolutely charming vignette.
