    Thanks Ed & Carl.
    Here’s another another view with dark background trying to capture poignancy of Lanoe’s story.

    If you turned that into sepia tinged black and white, you would swear it was an actual WW1 picture. Just amazing work!

    Did you pimp the fur on the coat with fibres?

    Thanks to all for comments.
    Tom - I used thickened oil paint to simulate fur, technique popularised by Hardy Tempest in mid 00’s.

    Simply stunning as all your work is! What a combination- you and Mike,wow
  15. Ferris A Fixture

    Stunning work as always Mike!

    Just how do you handle a catchlight on a 1/32 eye? And a pupil, same question.
    Whenever I try dots that small, either they don’t end up at the right spot, or the paint dries on the brush before hitting the surface. It shouldn’t be my brushes, they are expensive enough.

    Cheers,
    Adrian

    Thanks Neil - haven’t done enough of Mike’s figures & long wanted to do some of these Wingnut ones, got another little pilot on his way. Plus plenty of ModelCellar I cannot wait to get to.
    Always wanted to do Lanoe Adrian & chose him as another project for my book.
    Nice to hear he looks good to you.
    Ref eye detail, all a simulated effect based on a pattern of shape & positioning. I work on eyes repeatedly until I’m happy with how they look, as it’s always key to conveying a character, especially when it’s a specific individual. Also we instantly recognise if it’s not quite right. MikeG’s sculpting makes it a joy when it lands where you want it to.
    Thanks for feedback.
