    Just about finished this fella,a wee bit more weathering on the shield and that should be it.I deliberated left the obligatory white cross off the front of his tunic,as i found it detracted from the look i was after.

    Absolutely lovely painting! Love the atmosphere captured.
    Your palette is awesome! Thanks a lot for sharing! (y)
    I have this piece in my grey army and your rendition is very inspiring! With your permission I'll use your work as reference!
    Just a suggestion on the photography. Allow more space between the fig and the backdrop (aprox. 10"). This will keep the backdrop out of focus and will help a lot cancelling the shadows on the backdrop. Another cool and simple thing to do is to add a backdrop light in the lower part (left, right corner or center - it doesn't matter). Is just and idea.
    Cheers Brian!

    Marvelous brushwork Brian, on this otherwise drab figure. He truly looks the part(y)!

    Just a bit ago I ordered this guy with his companion as the set. Thank you for recommending them.
