Beautiful job David, the beard is a great addition.
Beautiful version of the classic figure David!
Cool as mate. Hardy
Looks great David!
Thanks Guys for all your encouraging remarks and comments they are much appreciated.
Excellent work David!
I like it a lot!
I'm curious about the technique with pastels you mention; may I request an SBS on the next one...??
fantastic paintwork, absolut great !!!
Cant say anymore than what has already been said, for me one of the best renditions of this figure i have seen and as its a popular figure i have seen many .
great result with the cloak and the very off white is what you would expect to see with the enviroment and the lack of wash powder and bleech.
Great work David and would love to see this one in the flesh.
Hi Adrian the technique for the pastels is quite simple,first I crush the pastels into a fine powder and apply the appropriate shades to the figure with a large dry brush and work them well in.It is the first time I have used this method on a whole garment rather than just for weathering.Thanks Karsten for your kind words.
Thanks Steve glad you like him, don't think I will be at anymore shows now until Euro.
Another masterclass! great to see new techniques used, and so effectively. Beautiful piece of work, look forward to seeing this at Euro...thanks for sharing,
Thanks Keith, Its good to try out new things and try and keep the hobby fresh.Cant believe we are talking about Euro already ,but it wont be long coming round.
Thanks for the pastel technique!
If you don't mind a few extra questions:
- Do you apply the pastels on wet paint (oils?) or after drying?
- Do you use separate base/shade/highlight pastels?
Hi Adrian the pastels are applied after the oils have thoroughly dry.You are right about using separate colours and I select pastels as near to the original oil colours.Hope this is of some help.
Excellent work, David! This one turned out very, very nice. That blue is fantastic.
Professional painting job Dave.
Un Lavoro meraviglioso!
Briliant piece of work !
