    Thanks Thomas. No Indians I'm afraid, besides this chap I'm working on Seven Years War Prussians, Thirty Years War Croats, a Landsknecht and a WWI Austrian Uhlan so quite a variety.

    Strictly speaking Eduardo the Naples Yellow is blended into the Orange as the highest highlight colour.
    It's a technique I learnt from a Conny Schulte sbs. It's on the web somewhere but I have it as a downloaded pdf if you would like it.

    A great start Roger.
    The contrast from shadow to highlight on the beast is fantastic.
    Question, do you always paint both sides of the figure? I only ask as I will be mounting mine in a frame and I am less worried about the back and use it for practicing.
    Well done Mate.
    Cheers

    Thank you keith.
    It really depends on how I'm going to display them whether I paint both sides or not, or if I can be bothered. If you're going to frame them there's no point in painting both sides. Using the non displayed side as practice is a good idea though and
    painting only one side also allows more time to get more figures painted. :D

    Roger.

    No, thank you very much Roger, I´m too lazy to read:giggle:, but i´ll prove it. I usually do the same using ochre and a bit of white, instead of Naples Yellow. Thanks for the tip.

    Hi Roger,
    That's looking pretty good considering you now have bent brushes and your paint supplies are running low!:p

    Ron, thank you.

    Richie, thanks, I'd better crack on before I'm pushed out of the painting chair.
