    Hi All,

    Been a while since I last posted. I Just finished this guy up for a friend. It is a very cool figure. The cast is very nice. It is clean and crisp and the fit is exceptional. Very little clean up required.

    All comments welcome.

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Hi Jason,

    Thanks for the comment. I thought the Coat turned out well for acrylics. I still want to try out oils for this much leather. I like the look, but lack the talent.

    Hey Mike,

    Thanks for the comment on the fur. See you in Atlanta.

    Really like what you have done.
    But for my personal taste i would tone down the highlights on the grey. It's in my opinion only highlight and shade. No tone's between. Because of that i find the highlight to harsh. For me it looked like a striped pyjama.
    Maybe i sound to hard and if so, i apoligize

    Had the pleasure to see this one in person this weekend. The pictures make the transitions a bit harsher then they are in person, but over all it is a really nice piece. Keep at it Mike, your getting there!!

    Nice job m8 - but Ditto here with Marc, toning down the transitions with a small pin wash between the 2 shades should do it, I have found from my personal experience that it looks much better afterwards.

    Hey Anders,

    Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate your taking a good part of the last year coaching and mentoring me.
