    Really nice and clean sculpt. Congrats!

    It may be the pics, but his left arm/shoulder looks a little under-developed possibly.

    Andrew! Your help is invaluable! I didn't notice it either. I think it won't be too much of a problem to fix it. I'll make a seam on the shoulders and grind the unnecessary collar flat.
    Thank you again!
    It's a pity that I didn't find your thread sooner. Can I use your photo on my forum to illustrate the problem?

    Stay safe, friends.

    That's a decent likeness of Napoleon Solo aka Robert Vaughn. He was a good actor - shame he got a bit type cast in that awful spoof Bond series. I liked him in "Bridge at Remagen"
    I'm on this one!

    :) A nice, little bottle of Nuln oil is always handy!:)

    A few light gray layers and the shirt is basically ready, the transitions are soft, look good in any light - day, shadow, bulb.

    Vest - dark gray base:

    Hi!
    I slightly shaded the bottom, perhaps unnecessarily, because probably after further work the effect will not be visible and I will have to tweak the contrast.

    P1240465.JPG

    Stripes.
    The layout is most visible in these photos.

    I started out painting the lapels but it was average, basically hopeless and decided to go for a different method.
    There are eight black stripes between the corner of the lapel and the hem of the vest, including the outermost ones. I'll start by assigning them, then move to the armpit. I will repeat the same on the other side.

    Very impressive lining ....you have done a really good job ......will you highlight on the folds ?

    I know when I did the "Glory" bust from Mitches with stripes .......a lot of holding my breath !!

    Look forward to the lapels being done

    Happy lining in at the bench

    More stripes ... with trembling hands; They are not perfectly straight, but I think it naturally looks that way ;)
