    Hi All

    Well, after a long time he's finished: Stormtoopers 120mm figure

    learnt a lot about my painting habits, and I'm much like a certain Chelsea manager - Mr Tinker. Spend more time analysing than painting

    One or two bits to finish off/complete.

    Comments encouraged and welcomed

    :)

    Thanks for the comments Folks

    Anders; they're in Photobucket and I can see them here, so not sure whats going on! Give it some time, and if there is still a problem, I'll email them to you.

    Rob; the water bottle was done with burn't umber oils over an ochre acrylic base - it was left quite thick then stippled with the end of an old brush to create the texture. This was left to dry, then it was shaded with thinned washes of oil paint. The felt water bottle seemed to cry out for this!

    Look good, Rob. Looking good. Interesting technique on the water bottle. I think the fleshtones really do give a feeling of "cold weather" to the piece.
