    Just finished this excellent Pegaso 75mm Rissalder last weekend and tonight, I finally had some time to take a few photos. So while I sit back and enjoy watching my Edmonton Oilers attempt to end a three game losing streak, I am sharing the latest project from my stacked up workbench. Please feel free to chime in with whatever advice and /or critiques you'd care to leave. A special thanks to Gary D. for agreeing to purchase this figure for me as part of a little exchange we worked out. I hope your end of the bargain has been worth while Gary!

    Thanks for the compliment Wayne, glad you like it. Thanks also Matt, it is in fact a combination of acrylics (under coat and details) and oils (the shading and highlites).

    Magnificent, Glenn.Very clean and precise painting. Now I see this figure painted by you, I still like more. It's a shame that the photos 1,2 and 4 are a little blurry.

    Wow. Very well done, Glenn.
    Some well painted details. This makes me want to stare at this one for a few minutes.
    (and telling myself I have a lot to learn :whistle:)

    Thank everyone! Marc, Dimitiros, Alexandros, Patrick, Noel, Gr. Peter and Stralis, I am very happy that you all liked the figure. Eduardo, I do apologize for the poor quality photos. I simply have never been able to master the fine art of photography. I'll keep practicing! Cheers everyone.

    Thanks David, I see what you mean, the facial hair almost matches the colour of the jacket. I'll add a thinned down glaze of ochre and see how it turns out.

    Thanks Carl. I wanted to emphasize the European background of this officer, so I figured what could more European than blonde hair? I just made the hair too close to the jacket.
    Thanks also Brian. I started with an under coat of Valejo Yellow Ochre. I used Sepia and Burnt Umber oil in a 2:1 ratio for the shadows, and Naples Yellow with a touch of Titanium White for the high lights. The last thing I did, and it was an after thought, was to add a thin glaze of Lemon Yellow, as the colour at the time was a bit muted and this gave it that real yellow pop I was looking for.
