    Thanks Jason & Carl for your comments.

    I'm nearing the end of the beginning, which is also the beginning of the end.o_O:confused::whistle::p

    Next step will be to apply oil washes over the leather and pastels over the cloak.

    Then a final round of touch ups with the acrylics again.(y)

    Hi guys,

    Thanks Mark, Grant and Dennis for your comments.(y)

    These are probably the final WIP pics before completion.

    I've added a series of oil washes over the flesh and leather parts and added some oil paint on the cloak to smooth out some of the transitions.:cool:

    The surface is still a bit shiny, however once the pastel chalk is brushed on I'll spray the bust with Dullcote and then go back with some satin gloss to add shine to the skin and the metals.

    Hope you like my progress so far.:D

    Thanks Dimitrios, its not quite finished yet but I appreciate your feedback mate.:notworthy:

    G'day Ben, thanks. I've been keeping a low profile recently but still slapping paint when ever I get a chance. Can't wait to see what you bring to WASMEx this year mate. Should be a good turn out.(y)

    Looking great Tony!

    I'm always a bit scared about adding varnishes, dullcoat particularly. Yellow and white hues are such a risk. What varnish are you using?

    Cheers,

    Thanks Marc and Adrian,

    I've brushed on some Tamiya Flat Base X-21 to the cloak and it's now dead flat.
    I decided against spraying Dullcote, as it makes everything flat, and I want to maintain some sheen on the flesh and the leather.(y)

    Didn't it dry chalky Tony?

    Yes it did Carl, but with repeated brushing with a damp flat clean brush I managed to get it to dry flat and smooth. I'll post some pics in a day or two once its finished.
