    I don't see anything wrong with the eyebrows, in my humble opinion they look fine and proper for the figure, i could be wrong but that is what i can appreciate on this pic.
    Good job Martin, this is going to be a killer and i am sure you will be happy to take a break form it :rolleyes:

    And now the pistol!

    I start with the barrel - here I want to show engraved (decorated with engraved ornaments) steel.

    Colors ...:

    [IMG]

    Basic painting with "Oily Steel," several black washings and discreet highlighting the ornaments with "Oily Steel" and silver - with careful brushing ...:

    [IMG]

    Lock and lock box I want to present as "brass".

    Since one brass has known since antiquity (Aristotle and Cicero mention it), this is also historically plausible!

    [IMG]

    Here are two photos of brass locks, the first to the 16th from the century ...:

    [IMG]

    And here's one from the 17th century ...:

    Flintstone becomes black...:

    Now it looks like that – nicely “used”, like I wanted it...:

    And at least the size comparison of the weapon to the pictures here ...:

    Thanks mate!!! :) Here comes the wood...

    -------------------------------------------------


    72. Day 5. February 2013

    Today I have invested a lot of work in it, to give the wooden parts of the weapon a beautiful grain ...:

    [IMG]

    The thing is there light where light will later fall on the gun and darker at places, they will have shadows later. However, I have tried not to overdo it ...:

    [IMG]

    For the presentation of the wood grain, I used the following colors ...:

    [IMG]

    Finally, the wood pieces get another satin matte finish with ...:

    [IMG]

    Now it comes just as I had imagined before!

    At the very end the fixing pin on the pistol is “camouflaged” with pure black.

    I really like that wood effect Martin did you freehand it or draw the grain on first ?

    73. Day, 6. February 2013

    Today something completely different!

    I've decided to revise the irises of my Ivan Sirko. Up to now they were too dark and looked somehow button-like ...:

    [IMG]

    Now I have with these colors ...

    [IMG]

    ..dared a revision..:

    The pistol has to wait until tomorrow ...

    74. Day, 7. February 2013

    And today back to Ivan Sirko’s pistol...:

    Trigger guard and butt-fittings are now painted as "brass".

    Since brass under natural influences - and also by manual welding - very fast gets dark, I have several very thin Washes used in various combinations of brass and black to show the “Brass” - like the rest of the weapon - as "used" ...:

    [IMG]

    Now it looks exactly like that, I imagined as I had sculpted the pistol-fittings!

    The three little "gems" that I modeled on the piston bottom, I'll save that for tomorrow ...

    Last step at the pistol are the three small Semiprecious stones
    are below the pens.

    I opted for "Red"!

    The "semi-precious stones" arising from ...

    [IMG]

    .... get each one a tiny reflex point of pure white, and finally a coating with ...

    [IMG]

    Et voilà ...:

    [IMG]


    [IMG]

    Pistol ready!

    Here again the pistol before I rebuilt it ...:

    [IMG]

    I think, my copy is much nicer - and historically far more plausible than those of the 17th century clearly modern looking pistol!

    And with this I say goodbye to the weekend ...
