    Thanks guys. I hope to return to it today and get started on the leggings.

    Jim, I may have the piece in Atlanta. If so, I doubt it will be finished. I may put it on display as "Not in Competition". I'm considering bringing it because I want to seek some advice from some folks down there.

    John,

    Nice painting and really capture the facial feature of an Indian. Did you sculpt the head?

    Thanks Vince. I wish I sculpted the heads. They're Hornet. I did modify the top one for a more intense and ethnic look. I gave him a little more brow and higher cheekbones.

    Very,very nice,John What's the flesh mix used for the Indians ?Did you intentionally go more towards the "red" side in deciding on the final tonal values ? Looking forward to more pictures soon.Cheers !

    Thanks Ken. I did go little red, the one on top is wearing red paint on the top of his head and makes it look redder maybe than it is. I'll try to relate the pallette, but I honestly can't remember the ratios. Mars Orange, Mars Violet, Brown Madder Alizirin, & Naples Yellow. Brown Madder Alizirin was added to the base for shadows, and highlights were done using Naples Yellow. Hope this helps, I know it would be better with the ratios, but it was a lot of experimenting.

    Hey Guys,

    After seeing these figures and the scenery in person, the pictures don't do them justice. The blue coat is fabulous! Just thought I'd trow this in :)
