    Steve, that Denison looks the dog's whatsits mate. Very impressive. I like the face too, typical of wartime faces - as a corporal he might be late 20's but looks 40-odd. Nice work , and full credit to Steve Reedee too for the quality of the figures.

    Continuing excellence, Steve! I'd say revisiting Cpl Reynolds' para wings definitely paid off, they're a superb rendition.
    Every time you show a new update to your work, I notice something different - this time it's the outline of the tin in his left smock hip pocket - very true to life.

    Back in the bunker!

    It's been raining and the firewood is almost done, so I kept the bunker fully operational after the H34. I loaded a new palette of oils and I always keep the prior for tonal references. Not much to look at right now, but the light tones on the Para smock are being worked right now. The right arm is done, working the left arm today, then the chest portion. Once the smock is done I'll go back and add the brush marks and work the web gear. Point being, it's good to be back to "sniffin paint and gluin my fingers together"!

    Cheers, Ski.

    Stunning sculpting with references to match and beautiful castings. Impressive paintwork throughout, but especially of the DPM jackets.

    Thank you Gentlemen, for the encouragment and compliments. Trying to keep the shadows and highlights across the different tones can play tricks on the eyes, lol. Doing one color at a time seems to be speeding up the process nicely. Steady ar she goes.

    Forging onward ;)

    Smock Light Tones Complete

    I just finished the lighter smock tones on the arms and chest. I will now go back across the entire smock to ensure the brush strokes are correctly placed according to color, etc. Like I said before, this particular pattern has evaded me, but it’s way too late to go back and change it, so we carry on, artistic license I say. As you can see, the shadows and highlights should carry through all three-color tones and painting them one color tone at a time completely before moving on to the next was not really that difficult. After doing this for a while you get use to it, seems to have worked out ok so far.

    The last step for this figure will be the web gear and helmet. As mentioned earlier, all the brass and metal work will be done on all the figures as a last step before the dull coat.

    Thanks for watchin. Cheers, Ski.
