    Here are the first couple of photo's of my painting of Dan's Hero of the Revolution figure.
    Still a lot to do but I'm pleased with progress so far. The metal of the rifle will be painted to represent rust and there will be a lot of snow and ice added to the general feeling of decay.
    Hope you like it so far Dan.

    Roger.

    Great, glad you approve Dan. I might as well reply to your email here too :lol: As for working quickly, well, after spending a month away I'm really in the painting mood and ready to crack on with it when I get back. The children are at school and the weather outside isn't very nice so I have spent almost two full days at it.

    It's going to be a fine piece, I'm sure.
    I hope I'll see the real thing one day.
    Reminds me of my favourite movie, Dr Zhivago

    Thank you Patrick. Just by coincidence Dr. Zhivago was one of the movies we had last trip at sea :eek:

    Here are some photo's of the completed figure. There is also a crow which will be perched on the wire next to the figures skull. In my haste to photograph this I forgot to add it.

    And finally the last one. Thank you Dan for allowing me to paint this. I hope it looks cold enough, I painted it with the doors open just to get a feel for it :lol:

    Fantastic Roger! REALLY cold-looking and the colors are spot on!

    Would it be possible to get a little more ice in the bottom of the shell hole near the boots?

    Could I get a close-up of the skull or hand bones to see how you painted those?

    Thank YOU Roger for collaborating with me! It's a lot of fun working with you, buddy!

    All the best,
    Dan

    Glad you like it Dan. Thats no problem to add a little more ice. I'll do that then take some more pics to include close ups of the skull and hands.

    Hi Roger

    when you add the crow it will be a fantastic scene. The whole scene looks real and very cold and I love the way you painted it.
