Hi everyone, I am trying my hand at acrylics, after always being an oil's painter, and thought I would use this old 120mm Verlinden figure for a bit of practice. I know black is very hard to do, so thought that if I could get this looking colour looking half decent it would help a lot with other future colours. I didn't want to be trying out any flesh tones just yet, mainly just want to try and get some experience with the blending process, so I painted his eye sockets black, then filled them in with clear resin, as I have pics of these guys with the dark tinted lenses on their masks. This is still very much a WIP, so I still have to blend the shadows and highlights a bit more, and tone them down a bit, plus I will give the leg sections and boots a bit more filtering of straight black. Anyway, all comments and critiques welcome, as this is a big learning curve for me. Thanks for looking, Jeff.
