    Hi, folks
    Here is a small conversion work made from the miniature they gave as a present to the show participants. I have tried make it look as close to this illustration:

    These are the pictures of the conversion work finished (very simple):

    The groundwork will include a wall section too.

    Fernando,
    Your fast man, nice conversion!
    One small remark the neck seems a bit too long.
    I'm also thinking about changing the head, because my heads casting doesn't look so well.

    Looking forward to see your magic brushes on this figure.

    Cheers,
    Marcel.

    Hi, guys!
    Yes, Marcel, you are not the only one to notice that the neck is a bit long. It will require some adjustment before the painting. Thanks for the comment, mate!

    I have shortened the neck and the base is already done. Everything is set for the painting now!

    Great start Fernando.
    In my opinion the upper eyelid is to black....but it can be that it is only a basecoat.

    nice conversion, did you sculpt the head or was it a pre made head? Nice start on the painting.

    Very good start with the painting Fernando, great flesh tones.

    Thanks guys!
    Yes, it is true. The shadows of the upper eyelid were too dark. So I corrected them with a bit of the base tone:

    Please, remember the actual size of the head (a Hornet one, by the way), so have in mind that things look a lot better in hand.

    And these are the last advances, the trousers:

    Hope you like it! Love it, the braid really sets everything else off. The subtle contrast really works. I didn't know it was only 1/35th scale though.
