    Hey guys, finally got around to painting the face and a little bit of the hat.
    This figure is most definitely an arduas task,but never the less a labor of love and very rewarding .
    I highly recomend this figure to any painter looking for a challenge.

    I'm always open to advice and crtitique.

    Aftre drying in the oven over night at a warm temperature of 140 degrees,I will give it extreme highlights and shadows.

    Roc-

    You are kicking butt on this figure.

    The mutliple colors and color placements on the hat are challenging. I learned a good lesson about planning my sessions out better after painting the VL bust.

    The hat is a blast to paint! Yours looks great. I am impressed by how quickly you are moving along. I don't know who is faster you, Guy or Anders. :)

    Hey Keith, thanks, much appreciated.

    As far as moving quickly,I thaught I was dragging a little. :lol:
    No body is faster than Guy and Anderson, these guys can finish a figure in a week. :)

    Cheers

    Your Lancer is looking fabulous Roc. Ok.........you motivated me to bring mine back out and get some more done with him. Although I will have to say, yours is looking much better so I may defer the pics of mine.

    As far as speed painting...............Anders has first place by a long shot. He can start a figure and have him finished in a week. It takes me much longer to finish a single figure.

    Looking good Roc!! Gotta love something that is red!

    As for speed, a week for a single figure!!? Thats a long time if yuou ask me! It all depends on how much you can paint, I am not nessessarily a fast painter, but I do paint a lot, specially now that I am out of school and have nothing important to do!

    Anders -

    Enjoy it while you can :)

    After returing to the hobby after a 18 yr absence, in one year I have completed exactly 4 figures. Of course, I did not include the 4 or 5 I am still "working on"... more or less... :lol:

    I'm glad to hear ,that I motivated you to finish your Lancer,albeit I would be very dissapointed if you didn't post pictures for all of us to enjoy. :(

    Stephan,my dear friend, it's always nice to hear nice words from an artist of your caliber, they encourage me and motivate me to continue.

    How is the weather in Malta? Here in Philadelphia it's a Hellishly hot and humid.

    Ciao.

    Nice work indeed - this figure is one of the first large figures I ever painted - I was really really proud of it and I have started looking at it in a new light - occasionally I ask myself - "Should I strip that back and start again?"
    I agree with you - it was a blast to paint.
    I look forward to seening the end result!
