    Hello everyone,
    I would like to share with you some progress pictures of my current figure. Everything painted in acrylics with some oil washed on the ground work.

    I like this very much, especially the warm colour palette. Would love to see some close up of the tartan cloak.

    The Tartan looks good. The face looks a little bland to me. The red hair looks good.

    Nice work, Piotr! The metals are well done, as is the tartan.
    Can I ask how you achieved the look of his metal helmet? Is that a dark wash over a flat bronze colour, or was there more involved? Very nice.
    Looking forward to seeing more progress.

    Very cool!
    As said, the tartan is well done as is the leather jerkin but what I really like is the treatment of the bronze helmet and armour pieces.
    As for the skintone, it strikes me as just right for a "ginger"... very pale, almost transluscent... I like it (y)

    Look forward to the progress of this project.

    Johan and Zeno, I promise I will put some close-up on tartan once the figure is completed :)

    You are right about the face Mike. I will be working on it at the last phase of painting. For sure I will be adding some reddish tones on the tip of the nose and around the cheek bones. In reality there is still a little more depth than on the picture. I think I overexposed the photograph a little bit.

    When it comes to metallics I tried something new this time. Especially for the bronze. I used a dark earth color (burnt umber or burnt umber with a little bit of burnt sienna to make it warmer) as a main color. I painted with it all elements that should represent bronze. For highlights I used to colors of powdered pigments from Pearl Ex - Antigue Brozne and Super Bronze. I created few lighter tones and used quite dilluted paint to build final effect. For shadows just added some black to base mix. Shadows were applied very dilluted. I have used Jo Sonja acrylic paints for this.

    I am glad you noticed. That was my goal to achieve something like this. But still, I need some tone variation on the face. Just a little bit :)

    I think I should start writing down my mixes :) I used Jo Sonja acryclic only for the hair color as well. I am quite sure the tubes I used were Carbon Black, Brunt Umber, Brunt Sienna, Cadmium Scarlet and Yellow Oxide.
    My main color was a mix of Burnt Sienna with a Cadmium Scarlet. For higlights I have used Cadmium Scarlet with Yellow Oxide. For the shadows just adding black to the main color.

    Thank you everyone for looking at him and for taking a time to post a comment. I appreciate it very much.
