    Google has loads of photo images of real leopard skins that provide excellent reference for the complex patterns. I think your version is a bit too orange, and the dark brown dot patterns could do with a bit more work. A good start. AE7822B3-AE78-4600-BB26-E1DC49E8CDD1.jpeg

    Yes, I looked at the images available on the web and found there was a good bit of variation. Also, my sources say some of the skins used by the hussars were "other" animals with the spots dyed on.:(

    Thanks for the comments. I'm not quite done yet, but found it was much easier to do than I had anticipated.

    Hi DAK

    Well done on completing these , they look good together and nice base presentation

    Nice work on the wings and the leopard skin looks so much better ...if I may suggest put a darker wash over the beards and hair

    Thanks for sharing ( we do have a completed part of PF if you wish to post pics there )

    Happy benchtime
