    Is there any hope for us mere mortals?

    It looks terrific Jaume

    Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Are you still using the same colors for a base as you were in your article on painting faces that is on line? I have to be honest. I saw your flesh tones a couple of years ago and said, "Man I have to try those colors". What I ended up with was a face that looked like a stop sign. Would it be possible to get an updated version with more emphasis on the shot by shot? For instance, what proportions of each color do you use (approx.).

    Again, terrific looking figure, Jim

    Dear Jaume,

    What can I say other that you doing a fantastic job. It's so life-like. In addition, you are prolific.

    I have a request. Can you show us a completed vignette as I am longing to see one especially from you.

    Dear Jaume,

    Outstanding - can hardly wait for the rest of the figure. I agree with all the previous postings - SBS would be great - especially for the face.

    Cheers

    I have a pic of this fig he showed me, a step before this final shots. I don't know if i can post it, Jaume. I want them to see it

    I guess the mix is quite easy and i'm trying it myself buy well... let's forget about it . You can find it in the post of the 90 mm fig. Here it is:

    Base color: Sand Brown
    Lights: Basic Skintone
    Shadows: Burnt Cadmium Red

    And as always...

    Hi Jaume,

    like all the rest here I'm again amazed by what you can accomplish. There's only one thing I would love to see: the shadow of the hat falling on the figure's face (forehead?). Then it would be more then perfect!!!

    Greetz,

    Gino


    Sorry for the nitpicking, but I've found that it's other peoples nitpicking that helps me the most. I hope you won't be mad for this? It's only meant as constructive help.

    Hi Folks.
    Thank you very much for your comments.
    As Dani said,I usually use the same colours to paint skintones.I'm experimenting mixing them with black,blue and green to get different shades.
    I'll start a sbs tread to clarify my method on painting faces.

    Gino.Special effects like deep shadows produced by the hat are always hard to understand if you're watching the figure under a general light.I think those effects are more on the fantasy side than the "reality" side.I've tried to do similar things in other figures and results were quite disappointing.May be I'm not so good painter. :(
    What do you think about it boys?(about effects,not me )
    Anyway I apreciate your nitpicking my friend.As you say,constructive comments and criticisms make us better painters.

    Best regards

    Hi Jaume

    Look forward to an SBS

    I agree with you on the special effects under normal light. There's a trend amongst fantasy mini painters to do "non-metalic-metal" or NMM, or painting metals in greys rather than metallics. looks good in a photo, but it is a 2D effect that doesn't translate well to seeing the figure in the round.

    Rob
