    Hi Jaume,

    WOW, that looks real. you are tricking us, no? you have put a picture of a real person on that body in photoshop. Another reference to look at for when I paint figures. Thanks a lot for the inspiration.

    Hi Folks.
    Next round.
    I've finished the flesh and still fighting with hair.Not very convinced with the colour...
    Johnny,It usually takes me 6 hours +/-.It depends on the complexity of the face.
    Joe,I'll try to be there.Not sure one year before but I'd like to come

    best regards

    Hola Jaume,

    I really love the effect of your painting, it is way cool. What colors did you use?

    I do think they should be a little lighter or brighter though.

    How come everything is primed except the super polished arm, any specific reason? Im just curious :lol:

    Love the face. I think it's fine as is.

    I think the color of the bronze is fine. But, think it's a littlle "dull". I am not an armor expert, though. ;)

    Great work Jaume, the face is real nice. I would maybe add some subtle highlights to the greaves with gold printers ink.....just a thought. Great job!

    Hi Jaume,

    Here's how I paint bronze. It might not be your taste, but I'm just telling so maybe you can try or alter the colours to your liking

    Base : Dark green
    1Ste highlight : Bronze
    2Nd Higlight: Old Gold
    1Ste shadow : Black Green
    2nd shadow : Black.

    I hope this helps.

    Greetz,

    Gino.

    P.S. All colours are Vallejo
