    Although I've got five other projects in progress at the moment it was impossible to resist making a start on this.
    I haven't done the lips, moustache or eyebrows yet but critique or suggestions on any other part of the face is welcome.... especially as this isn't something I usually paint.

    Good start Roger! I would add more highlights to the face because it still looks a bit dark to me.
    Also a bit more contrast around the eyes I would say.

    Cheers,
    Marcel.

    Cheers Carl, the fleshtones are based on my own sun kissed (or is that weather beaten?) good looks but I've just been addressing that. ;)

    Further progress, hair and moustache only basecoated at the moment. Any tips from accomplished bust painters would be very welcome. (Or anyone else ;) )

    Spent today working on the trench cap. The shade is based on an original item and should make a nice contrast with the khaki uniform

    Hi Roger, that´s look great so far. Do you use oils or acrylics for the face?

    Greetings Thomas

    I admire people who can paint with acrylic. I tried, but I do not get good results with these colours.

    I've never used anything else, some of the flat painting community despair of me but I'm too impatient for oils. :D
