    Hi to all again. This is one of my latest works, all painted using acrylics. The figure is from Andrea Minaitures, the classic 1/32 of the brand, abit small I think, comparing with other manufacturers.
    I added the artificial water, to a self-made ground, the bigger vegetation is made of painted and varnished paper. ( First drawn, then painted, varnished for endure, and finally cutted.)
    This figure is the cover of my web in november.
    Al comments welcome.

    Those Andrea figures can have a certain charm, as this one has. I like your work on this one, particularly on the face and white. The coat looks suitably dirty.

    Nice idea about the plants too. Will remember and try that, thanks!

    It's a pity the surface tension of the water betrays its scale. Recently there was a post in which this was solved by adding transparant glossy acrylic paste OVER the resin water, and I thought it looked very convincing, adding some waves as well. I'll try and find that post for you, if you don't recall it. If you want, you can still add that effect to your base.

    Thank you very much for your comments captnenglish, supermario,Pedro, Marc, Diego, swralph and Lars.
    Adrian, about the artificial water I am stil in my first steps with this material, so I have very much to improve.
    Thank you very much for your comment and tip, somehow I missed the post of Luca about the water, and it is very useful.(y)

    Hi to all again. Here are the photos after adding some waves to the water, to avoid the the excesive flat effect on it. (As Adrian noted above)
    I used acrylic gloss barnish, almost dryed, at the point it is thick.

    Thank you Adrian. As I readed in the post you told, it is very important to make some layers of artificial water.
    The problem is that the most of the resins need a lot of time to dry completely, so it is very difficult to keep the final shape of the waves.
