    I will fry him soon Darko, no worry. I'm glad I took the time for him. Changes are due to a time I was not working intensively on Herr Landa. You'll see things.
    just like now, noticed something is his haircut that needed altering.

    I have become a patient man :)

    Well thank you Adrian :).

    Christoph was a very hard one to do, I have to admit.

    some pages back I thought: 'it's him! but realized I succeeded in a nice caricature ( which is also worth something) and his likeness was enhanced by a temperary torso.

    I just polished, finished his ears too and he is in the oven now.

    Your best work so far ! Do not mean that the others are not great portraits too, but this one has something more than just likenes...keep up the with the same "high standard" on the torso too ;)

    Thank you Darko. Yes, Christoph has this karma to be noticed in his better roles. He has also a slim body.
    He was very good ( read 'sadistic') in 'water for elefants' as August.
    I could go on for another year on his head but need to go on, was fatigueing sometimes.

    Wonderful actor.

    Hi Norm,

    I have just one camera since 2003:

    Fuji3500.jpg
    the Fujifilm S3000

    I use it as seen here with the solarcap mounted but an uv- filter mounted.
    Got aquinted with it that well I don't use a tripod but have single shots from my hand :)
    Lowest resolution/ Macro and two lamps above my subject that might make my pics look good.
    But they really are not that good, just functional.

    To remove a pin that left its socket I needed to open my cam once since it caused a rambling sound and for just two unique screws I needed to scratch a special screwdriver. A little piece of dust that appeared on my lens from the inside I gently removed by use of vacuumcleaner.

    It's an 'oldy' but I still love it.

    Gracia Nello!

    in return I want to share a funny one. Christoph Waltz in what he is doing best, making people laugh :)

    Lobotomized squeezebag!!!! hahaHA! so true :cool:

    Don't know if this statement is doing me any good but I LOVE this man. I'm aware he can't buy his cream and cigarettes in a normal way any longer like we do but he is completely meeting my sense of humor.

    I'm figuring out how to create a nice leather texture, anyone suggestions?

    Looking great allready.
    I think the leather look is gonna be good with a satinshine painting.

    Mark, Marc, thank you.
    Yes , I believe some paint will do Herr Landa good :)

    but again, trying to figure out a structural leatherlook, like craquelé on the coat. But how...

    Craquele, well, with some very fine sand into the putty you get a rough texture.
    Another option what i think off is with a hard brush.
    But i'm no sculptor, just thinking with you.
