    Hi everyone,

    I have been visiting this site for a couple of months now and Andrew (Specmod) has been encouraging me to have a go at some figures. I have completed my first figure and thought that this would be the best forum to get some honest, constructive feedback. Whilst I know I have a long way to go it was an enjoyable build and I was happy with the way that it turned out.

    Some details:

    The figure depicted is an ANZAC infantryman during the Gallipoli campaign. It is a 120mm from AC Models in NZ. It is one of his earlier pieces in white metal (I believe they are now all in resin). It is painted in a combination of acrylics from Lifecolor (Flesh set), Vallejo Model Colour, Derwent Mini's and Citadel Inks and washes.

    All comments would be most welcome

    Regards
    Greg

    Welcome to the planet Greg. I like what you have done. I would try for more contrast in your flesh as well as the clothing. Excellent work.

    Welcome Greg,
    I hope you like it here.
    The figure is really nice painted. As Guy mentioned some more shading will do the job.

    G'day Greg,

    Welcome to the Planet mate. Great to have another Aussie on board.

    For a first effort I'd say you've done an outstanding job on this figure. You clearly have a good eye and it will improve with practice.

    As some of the others have commented, your flesh tones could do with some more contrast. I like the base and the groundwork.

    Overall,a very good effort.

    Nice piece, he has a real authentic look about him.

    I never feel experienced enough to comment on figure painting, so I can only echo the opinions of others in that the fleshtones could be varied a bit.

    Uniform and pose is excellent. Well done mate.

    Morning my friend,....
    perhaps a very light wash of artist oils," Burnt Sienna " 75% turps 25% colour, and the tip of your brush a little boiled linseed oil, remember just the tip,.. this will give you a light suntan and will settle in the low spots...perhaps you may require a second application,the look of the figure will tell you...
