    Hola Guys!

    Here is the Pegaso knight just about finished. Still need to paint some on the axe, details on the sheild and a few touch ups here and there, then it is time for ground work. Let me know what you think!

    I agree. Nice job on the armor and heraldry.

    Any one have ideas on how to make cut marks from edged weapons on shields?

    I see some beautiful examples on Mike Blank's work but he doesn;t mention how he did it.

    Thanks guys! This guy was kind of a spontaneous thing, just saw it and decided to do him. It has been great fun so far!

    As for the cuts, what I gather is to make a dark line, then an extreme light underneath or above the dark line. Atleast that is what I am going to do on this one, guess we'll see how it works out!

    Hi Anders!

    He looks really good, I think the subdued yellow works a treat.

    For the slashes in the shield, light at the bottom, shadow at the top to create the 3-Dimensionality. Remember this fellow?

    Very Very Nice,
    I like the colors. I think in the medieval period the colors where not bright. So i think you did it the way as it must be.

    Dear Anders,

    Your Pegaso knight is looking great. Well done. I like the mood of this figure - looks broody and suits the subject matter. Too many knights are painted in bright colours and personally I prefer the darker version of colour.

    Well done.
    Cheers

    Thanks Franco!

    That is exactly what I was tying to do, paint him in subdued colors, but still attractive. The tilt of the head is probably the most important factor in showing his attitude, atleast thats what I think, especially about knights.

    Im working on the base at the moment but he will be finished tomorrow!
