    Hi Guys,

    I don't normally do WIP but I thought it would be kinda fun and some thing different for me.

    Off we go on a new experience.

    The figure is a FM Benito kit. Not sure who sculpted it but it's an awesome sculpt.

    Here's a few pictures of the Box Art and my progress. I started this yesterday.

    I guess I'll post more pics when I get home. I'm having trouble posting from my phone! Ugh!

    It's a golden oldie. It'll be interesting to see how this one develops.

    Cheers

    Good job on the tub... Arms on the shell looks awesome!
    I love this figure... he looks like a saucy little bugger. Like Joe said, he looks like a real back alley scrapper :sneaky::blackeye:

    Looking forward to seeing this piece develope

    Superbly done - I assume you are using a microscope to get that degree of detail?

    Daniel,
    The Drum colors I used started out with are the folowing: Base: Green Ochre + Olive Drab, Hi lighted with additional Green Ocher and Off white to reach the final Highlight. I used Olive drab and black for low lights. It just felt right.
