    Hello all,
    While I've been a member here for a good while, here's the 1st piece I ever felt that was nice enough to be shown here. Most of my other work is like this, but I was intimidated to post it!
    On to this one, a 1/9 scale (200mm) resin bust of Sgt. Dan Daly. Put out by The Regimental S-4. Great little piece, an absolute joy to paint!
    Thanks for looking!

    Excellent painting Rod. I hope to see more of your work.

    Thanks Guy!

    I'll see how this one goes over, then I'll post some more! As soon as I can figure out how to post actual pictures instead of the links!
    Thanks for looking and the comments!

    Good photos, Rod. Thanks for posting. To get those to appear as images instead of just links, put image tags around the link [IMG].

    For example, the below image looks like: {img}http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v130/atco99/wyatt-W.jpg{/img} (except use square brackets instead of curly ones).


    The easiest way is to copy the image url into your clipboard, and then click on the forum editor icon that looks like a little postcard (insert image appears when you hover your mouse over it). It will give you a window to paste your image link into. Click OK and your image is inserted complete with proper image tags.

    Rod, welcome aboard, and thanks for sharing. Very nicely done over all on this, one of R4's best releases. I realy like the gloss of the hat brim. One item I would look at is the lips, they look just a tad too dark (red/maroon) to me, I would look at toning them down just a tad next time and I think you're the road to great things!

    Thanks, Jay!

    I'll definately look at the lips like you suggested. Thanks for looking and your comments, and I'll be sure to post more things in the near future!

    Thanks to everyone who took time to reply...

    It's really great when a bunch of my peers can see my work and make comments, and vice versa!
    Thanks to everyone who took the time to do it!

    Hi Brent,
    Is that bust made by Jaguar?

    Thanks for confirming that Brent. I'm a big fan of Mike Good's work. I've been toying with the idea of getting that full size figure of Wyatt Earp that Jaguar do for a long time now.
