    Face is finished on this one ladies and gents.......

    It's the Soldiers' 90mm Teutonic at Tannenburg abely sculpted by Adriano Laruccia, which I'll be depicting as a Hospitaller Knight :p

    I hope I haven't returned to the crappy pics era :eek: and after 777 pics and playing with the lighting rig, I managed to salvage these three :(

    All comments fire on as always :D

    The painting is flawless as usual Ray. The photography is definitely improving, but I think a little bright.

    Nice and clean work. ¿Have you thought about adding some effects like beard shadow an some red and purple here and there to increase the richness of the flesh tones? I think they would work fine in such a big 90mm face.
    I'll follow the process.

    Your usual very clean and crisp painting job. I wish I could do so well in large scale figures. If your Camera allows, perhaps a try underexposing 1/2 through to 1 full stop ?

    Hi Ray,

    The painting looks great as usual mate!

    The images look a little over exposed.

    If you download Picasa or similar from Google it allows you to alter the exposure with your PC.

    A Big Thanks to everyone for putting up with my CRAPPY PICS :eek: and for being too kind as usual........

    I've edited the pics (STILL CRAPPY) but maybe just a bit better :D

    Will listen to all the advice you've given me guys, and hope to be able to improve until my next shoot out, as I can't really stop and waste another day in adjusting and toying with the camera & lights (was on the verge of pulling off all wires and throw everything out of the window believe me)

    Keep safe everyone........

    Ray ;)

    Thanks Daniel, you're too kind like the others :eek:

    He's going to be a Hospitaller Knight 15thC defending Rhodes during the first seige, so he's going to be Red + white cross, black mantle and red sheild.........
