    Hi guys,

    A first time for me - painting flats! 30mm size, painted in acrylics, the photos are much bigger than the figures. 2 down, 4 to go, complete with horses!

    Thanks for looking,

    Steve(y)

    They look great Steve!
    I've said this on here before but in case you haven't heard me say it, when you've think you've finished highlighting and shading a flat go back and do it again, it makes quite a difference.

    Thanks for the comments, chaps.

    Roger - I shall have a look in daylight, but, like you say, I think I can afford to push the highs and lows a bit more...(y)

    Number 3 - the shading on the horse has flattened out a bit in the pic - more pics to follow, in the daylight!(y)

    Careful Steve you'll get hooked on these little gems :D Good advice from Roger on the contrasts. I find painting flats made me more aware on what I do with light on round figures, still can't do it....but it made me more aware....LOL

    Cheers Keith - I'm enjoying the challenge although Im not sure if I would ever get any more.... It takes me back to art college days and having to think about the application of light and shade! I hope my dad likes them when theyre done and framed(y)
