    Hi friends!

    A new WIP in my workbench (in this moment I'm working in three miniatures at same time!:whistle: ) This time is a fallschirmjager from Jeff Shiu. And amazing model in 120mm.

    Well, I've to say that it's the first time that I paint a german soldier with camo.... so I'm still learning!!

    In the pictures I just present the camo pattern with the color base, so I haven't work lights neither shadows. Let me know what do you think

    A very interesting method of defining how the light areas are (y)

    I really like your start on this figure. Back in the day when I did a few SS and Fallschirmjager camo patterns on kits I did it the same way. It is so much easier (as an oil painter) than trying to shade and highlight each color as you go. I found that Burnt Umber was a great unifying shadow color for all the different tones when used as a glaze - a great time saver. I'm really looking forward to following your progress on this great figure.

    This is really looking great... love the tone(y) ! Is this oils, acrylics or both? I'm assuming oils...

    Thanks for comment!

    Today had been an exiting day, cos' I'd recieved a private airbrush masterclass from Javier "Arsies". I would like to learn to use this tool, that mixed with other techniques like the usual brush or oils, could be amazing.

    Well, this is the result of this masterclass. Is not finished and there're too much work yet. But as you can see, all lights and shadows are painted (they aren't cause of the natural light).

    Feel free to comment

    Hi Alex,
    It looks like you have applied your "masterclass" superbly. Great effect so far on the camo, love the balance, keep up the good work mate. If the rest turns out like your start this will be a cracking figure.(y)
    cheers

    That is really nice Alex. It already looks like a well worn uniform. I like your choices of colour. Not many painters take on the yellowish version of this camouflage pattern.

    I look forward to your progress!

    Cheers,

    Thanks [USER=6529]Richie[/USER] and [USER=5545]Ferris[/USER] for comment :)

    What do you think about the helmet? what do you think would be the best color option?

    Hi Alex,
    This is only my opinion, if this were my figure I personally would go for a nice contrast to the camo and do the Fallschirmjager helmet in Luftwaffe blue. I would also add some appropriate wear and weathering. There are some good sites if you google them that show lots of variations something might jump out at you.
    cheers

    Hi Alex,
    Again very well done - the contrast and tones on the trousers look great. The jump smock is top notch. Keep going mate.(y)
    Have you decided which helmet variation you are going with?
    cheers
