    As I mentioned on my other thread, I'm working on this piece at the same time.

    The figure is from the TFB range and sculpted by John Rosengrant.

    At this stage I've painted the face, keeping the flesh tones relatively subtle.
    I've given him a 5 o'clock shadow, and kept this subtle as well.
    Apart from the waistcoat, the other colours are just a basecoat.

    My apologies the photos aren't great, Hopefully I can post some better images later on.

    And yes, after this mornings painted session, I returned to my decorating. :(

    You never know a French Infantry may land on my bench as I believe John will be adding to this range, and a Frenchman could be one of them.
    We'll have to wait and see.

    I like the figure, but the expression turned me off a bit on it.

    John R also appears to model his figures’ faces (not all of them, but some) on his own face. This is one such figure.

    Hi Malc

    You are switching not only scales but periods between this and the excellent WW1 bust you have on the bench

    This is certainly a very popular figure and this is a lovely start ...like the 5 o’clock

    Following with interest

    Happy benchtime in between the wallpapering

    When I first saw the face, I was a bit unsure, but the more I work on the figure, the more it works.

    Hi Steve.

    I too thought it looked a bit like John, but thought I must be wrong, but now thanks to you I know otherwise.

    Very nice, Malc. You handled the white waistcoat extremely well (white always drives me bonkers).

    My apologies, I forgot to provide the palette I used for the waistcoat.

    The colours use are all from the Scale 75 range.

    I used Thar Brown for the basecoat.
    Shadows, Thar Brown with a little Black.
    1st highlight, Thar Brown + Mojave White.
    2nd Highlight, Mojave White + White.

    It's a common theme with JR!

    Just to be clear though, this is just an observation, not a criticism. I'm a big fan of his work as both a sculptor and painter, and have drawn a lot of inspiration from it over the years.

    As far as your take on the TFB piece is concerned, you're off to a great start and I look forward to seeing the end result.

    My apologies for lack of an update.
    Unfortunately I'm having issues transferring photos to my laptop, hoping to get the matter sorted soon.
    I'll have an update on the WW1 bust too.
