    Skin tines are looking good. I think he will stand a little matte varnish when complete. But you can tell he is shaping up nicely.

    Looking good, but I suspect his suit jacket would not be so faded and might be a chalk or pin stripe.

    I think the dry brushing on the suit jacket is too strong. It might be better to use the same blue colour you used for the base colour of the suit jacket and just add a small amount of white. Then very carefully go over the highlight areas and blend the highlights into the base coat. Good luck.

    Thanks guys, please remember its a work in Progress, not finished yet.

    I never drybrushed a figure the last ten years, maybe the pics a bit bad i used flash by the last one.

    Nicely done Stephan. The pin striping of the suit is quite difficult to do, but I think you've done a good job.
