    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.


    Cheers David

    Hi David,

    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?

    Thanks!

    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.
