    Costas, nicely done. I shivered just looking at him. Love the weathering and snow on the jacket. Is it maybe the photos, or does he look a little "off center" in these pics? He seems to lean a bit backwards and to his right. It makes him look just a tiny bit off ballance. I also like your choice of backgrounds, adds to the mood.

    Dear guys thanks for your commenting. This was a fun piecefor me , as everything that includes snowand cold !!! LOL

    The bit of balance was pointed out to me by the figures pose already , plus the factthat he is crossing between woods and i was trying to give some more drama

    Dear Marc the background is printed and putted behind the theme while shoting . The only Photoshop addition is a bit of snow right and left of his foot , just for fun , nothing else ,so ....it would nt make any difference

    Very Nice Costas!

    The snow and the feeling of a freezing and cold grenadier is great.

    A question, I'm doing a winter scene myselves these days, what do you use for snow? and how did you attached the snow to the figure?

    Its also amazing that you made this piece in 4 days :eek:

    Cheers

    Snow - ground

    Under layer: Valejo Acrylic Snow in bottle
    Medium Layer: CA glue minerall filler for sparkling
    Over layer: Microballons

    Woods snowing :

    a bit of Valejo snow with toothpick and after drying some Valejo spray varnish and Microballons over it partially

    Clothes : Valejo spray varnish and Microballons over it (3 times)
