    Hi,

    I'm currently painting Andreas's D. Quixote and Sancho Pança for my father (he likes Cervantes a lot).

    I'm including some pictures for your consideration and advice, on the work and on how the pictures are taken.
    .
    The pictures are taken with natural light
    The figures are painted with an acrylic undercoat and oils.

    D. Quixote is almost ready.
    Rocinante is halway.

    Cheers.

    The figures are looking good so far. Maybe a little too much light as I see reflections bouncing off some of the areas.

    Keep us posted as you progress more. This figure is high up on my "want" list and I look forward to seeing you progress with yours.

    Paulo,

    It is a nice start from great figures. I saw them in real, and i find them very skinny. But you are not the sculptor.
    Keep us posted when you are further in the progress.

    Nice work so far, bothon Don and the horse is nice . I dont know if the puctures "eat" the shadows , but the horse seems to be able to hold some more shadowing.

    Waiting to see some more !!!! Keep Safe

    Hi Paolo

    I made the same set last year after reading the book. It gave me some useful tips. The horse for instance was very skinny and had a sick looking, yellowish skin and the harnes was very rusty since it hadn't been used for more than hundred years!
    I also saw the movie with John Lithgow and Bob Hoskins which gave me some more ideas.
    It's a beautiful set so take your time.
    I you have any questions about the set, book or movie, just mail me.

    Marc, Costas and Vergilius thank you for you supporting words.

    You're right Costas, Rocinante must have a few more shadows (althought the light ate up some of the colors).

    Does anyone have a drawing on how to make a photo booth? I can't seem to get it right (either to much light or to dark).

    Meanwhile work has take over from pleasure (again), so D.Quixote will have to be put on hold for some time.

    Cheers,
    Paulo
