    Finally, i think i finished this Young figure.
    I'm still not satisfied with the eyes but i cannot get them better. So i promise the next figure will be better :D
    Let me here what you guys think.

    I don't know. First they looked okay. But when i lined them it's get wrong.
    So i redo them 7 time's but the more i try the more i can't get them right.
    I cannot get my fingers behind the problem.

    :cool: Looks fantastic! Mark's right, you did a great job on the rucksack, it looks very realistic, along with the leather equipment.

    Marc,
    good tones with the figures, like the leather details also.

    As for the eyes, I am struggling with the eye on my 75mm pegaso centurion - I think I may cut the white with a dilute wash of flesh tone, don't know if that is of any help to you?

    Still a well presented figure, with good groundwork and smooth tones,

    cheers
    PS like the weathering on the walking stick/ cane - nice and subtle!

    Hello Marc.
    The feel of a material of the uniform is wonderful.
    I think the coloring is also very correct.
    The ground work is also beautiful.
    I congratulate completion.

    Marc, nice work here. Sometimes we get so close to a figure we can't let go of an issue we think we're having. It's good to share sometimes to bounce your ideas off another painter. Like the others, I don't really see anything wrong with the eyes. Over all, a great effort I think!

    Marc,

    I agree with Jay. Sometimes we see problems with our figures that other people don't.

    The main thing is that you like it and feel its an improvement on your previous figure.
