    Hi planeteers,
    let me present you my latest painting. I started this a few weeks back and this is where I am now. The sculpt is fantastic and besides it I also admired the painting of Danilo Cartacci from the Pegaso boxart and that´s why I try hard to be satisfiend with my version. So thank you for watching and any comments are welcome;)

    Beautiful skin tones Robert. I saw this posted over on Med-Rom and loved the blue's you have done too.

    He's looking fantastic Robert!! The hair, fleshtones, and blue are all beautiful. As others have said, I'd be interested to know your formula for the flesh and also the blue.

    Hi! Robert.
    The skin tone is very wonderful.
    It seems to build into a very beautiful work.
    I'm looking forward to completion of your work very much.

    Hi friends, thank you all for kind words and encouragement.
    Requested flesh tone mix:

    medium: Mars Orange+Naples Yellow
    shadow1: Ultramarine Pink+Naples Yellow
    shadow2: is shadow1+Burnt Umber
    highlight: medium+more Naples Yellow
    highest highlight: pure Naples Yellow

    I tone down a day after with a touch of Ultramarine Pink when too much light. As I am not a speed painter, I work in areas, so at the I make corrections here and there to achieve the same intensity in all parts.

    HI Robert,

    Beautiful work! and thanks for the information on the flesh mix-as a point of interest what do you use as the acrylic base for the flesh as obviously this has an effect on the subsequent oils.

    Thanks Keith,
    first I airbrush the figure with white synthetic Humbrol matt white, this is a best base for next, this time acrylic basecoat. under flesh colour I´ve used Vallejo Flat flesh (very thinned with water and I brush it on surface in 2 thinn layers).
