    Hi all,

    It's been a while since I have started this figure. It is going very well.
    Still many hours of painting in front of me in order to finish what will become my first figure with acrylic paints (Vallejo).
    I used to paint on canvas (oils) but this is very very different.
    Acrylics and printer's ink except some ivory black on armor
    I had a lot of input from my cousin who is a dedicated mini painter.
    Many parts were repainted until it was good enough for me.
    Lower legs not finished. Many highlights and deep shadows missing. Red ribbons are only base coated.
    The sculpture is amazing on this figure.
    My picture skills are not good at all and I'm still learning. However I think I can still see on the pictures the velvety feel of the red fabric, and the blue and green parts which have a much coarser thread.
    Sorry for my not so perfect english.
    All input more than welcome !

    Cheers

    Alex

    Coming along superbly. I really like the metallics. Mind revealing what you used for the gold?

    The crown was first primed (grey), then basecoat of vallejo mahogany brown
    Then stormtroopers gold printer's ink.
    still missing a very very thin layer of oil burnt umber for shadows.

    All fleurs de lys were done the same way.

    I also tried vallejo metallics, jo sonja metallics, winsor & newton metallics for oils
    And nothing even come close to true printers inks.
    i can't see individual flecks on this 54 mm even with high magnification !
    Knee armor is bronze.

    Superb work, especially for such a small scale.
