    Barrie,
    first of all welcome aboard, and thanks for posting up your work. Looks like you did a nice job with this little fellow. The plaids are nice, the argyle socks are great and over all the colors work very well. My only small quibble would be that maybe you could push the shadows a tad more, particularly in between the fingers, maybe on the shield, but over all a great job! Hope to see many more from you in the future!

    Good work Barrie. I agree with Jay on every point, ending up with more shadow. Of course shadow washes out at distance so this may just be a result of your shooting distance, but a little more appears to be in order. Thanks for showing.--

    Welcome to the planet.
    You did a wonderfull job on this Piper, and i must agree with the others that more shading bring in the dept at the figure.
    But the Tartan looks great.

    Hi Barrie, I have to agree with everyone else thats posted here. How did this kit go together, as I have always liked this kit but never bought it.

    As others have said, a great job on the plaid.
    Convincing sense of the wind in his face, maybe push the grass at a bit of an angle
    to emphasise.
    Smashing.

    Everyone, thanks for your input,have taken the shading advice on board and will work on that for the next time.
    Ben, the kit went together really well with no problems. The front of the kilt being a seperate part certainly helps.
