    Hello all:

    Here are some updated photos of the officer. For the lapels, I used a mix of magenta and Napoleonic red, highlighted with light flesh. Shadows...I added more Prussian blue to the base color, with final shadows including a dab of black. Outlining was the same mix as the darkest shadow but thicker.

    Basecoat for vest - deck tan and offwhite, 1:1
    Basecoat for the pants - silver grey and deck tan, 1:1
    Basecoat for the gaiters - German winter tanker white, panzer aces 344 + stone grey

    Comments and feedback are welcomed and appreciated.

    What an amazing figure this should be. Truly a unique pose and the character in the face is perfect both for his rank and for the era. Thank you for continuing to post your colors/palette. This is especially useful for a novice painter like myself.

    Highlights, shades, and incredibly precise outlining in the lapels demonstrate how finely a figure of this size must be painted. Looking forward to more pics!
