    Hello Everybody,

    I just finished painting this incredibly well sculpted 90mm figure from Pegaso. Not much to say here... the quality was excellent, there was almost zero preparation needed, and it was an absolute joy to paint. I couldn't recommend this figure enough :)

    As always, done exclusively in oils.

    Regards,
    Phil

    Thanks everybody for all the kind words. They're much appreciated :)

    For Scott (and others who might be interested), all the metals were done as follows:
    1. A base of bronze metallic oil paint (Williamsburg) was mixed with Burnt Umber and Terra Verte (both from Old Holland) and applied to all the metal areas.
    2. Shading was then added with Payne's Gray (Violet Shade) (Williamsburg) in the appropriate areas. (The violet was used because it contrasts nicely with the yellow, golden color of the highlights).
    3. Highlights were then added using Antique Gold Metallic oil paint (Schmincke Mussini).
    4. An additional set of more extreme highlights was added with Iridescent White metallic oil from Winsor & Newton.
    All this was done in a "wet-on-wet" style where all the shadows and highlights are applied directly to the wet oil paint base, and then blended together.
    Once everything was dry, I then went back again... this time emphasizing certain light/shadow areas and making sure all the inlays and patterns on the armor were made clean and distinct.
    I hope that helps!
    Regards,
    Phil

    From one Phil to another - superb job! I love the choice of colours and the tightness of your detail work. I found your explanation of the process very interesting.
