    This is the story with this guy so far.
    His face ws initially done in oils but It wasn't too good. So I tried sprayed some Dullcoat on it then filtered acrylics over it which seems to have saved him a wee bit.

    Tell you what Grant if this was to 'correct' a finish you weren't satisfied with it's worked brilliantly.

    Very nice effects with the clothing and face!
  5. Don Well-Known Member

    Lovely bit of work Grant, like the fading you have managed, clothing looks very "real".
    So glad you "saved" him! I am sure I would have been happy with the unsaved version.

    Face looks good. Seems that you have overdone the dark browns.....looks like burnt umber/Brown Madder Alizarin.

    I wanted him to look weather beaten. I believe the Crusaders spent many months travelling in the deserts Middle East where it gets rather hot...and there was no Ambre Solaire back then I don't think.
    Helm and housecarl like this.

    If it was a flub up you made a fantastic recovery :)(y)

    Love the flesh tones ,how well did the dullcoat matt down the oils .

    Well I'd say that was a good save! The face looks excellent Grant.

    Totally flattened them Ron. Also gives enough grip for the acrylic washes to hold onto.
