    This is really well done, Marc. IMO, this is the best piece that I have seen you post here. I especially like the red and green shade and highs. Excellent flesh tones, too! (y)

    Very nice indeed. Am I correct in assuming this is a 54mm figure? Well, no matter what size, a wonderful demonstration of shadow and highlight work.

    Very nice indeed Marc. I especially like the color choices you have made. Better than the muddy earthtones I always paint. Nice flesh tones as well (y) .

    So.......the question is, "what's next on your bench" ?

    Nice job Marc!

    I echo what everyone else has said. The reds and greens look really good. The red isn't too orange and the green isn't too yellow for the highlights. Thanks for sharing. Are you going to the Expo?

    Luca,

    Thank you for the nice words. Yes the medieval period has my interests.
    But also the Celt's, Napoleonic's etc.
    I paint the figure's who are realy nice, and have a great sculptor.
    For now i have tree 70 mm a Marcoumani from Pegaso, Hauptman from the Franco Pruisian war and the French Line Infanterist both from Elite.
    The last two are sculpted Stefano Gallardo, and the box art from Pepe Gallardo.
    And they are so beuatifull sculpted and painted.
