    Well, this one is done at last. This is the second figure that I have done in acrylic (except for the GS Mr metal and printers inks). Now, I remember why I usually paint in oil :lol:

    Hope you all like it, let me know what you think. All comments are welcome :)

    Beautiful work Keith........I like the subtle weathering of the bottom of the tunic. What are you using for snow?

    Hi Keith

    Very nice indeed. I echo Guy - what is the snow made from - it looks very effective.

    Do you think you will stay with acrylics now?

    Cheers

    Nice to see your knight finished.

    When I go back to the figures, some months ago, I start again with acrylics. It's true that is not an easy medium, at least for me, but now I'm seeing all its advantages.

    Guy-

    Thanks for comments on the weathering. The snow is 2/3 Hudson and Allen Snow + 1/3 micro balloons. When I tried them seperately the H&A is too flat and the microballoons are too sparkly. Together they look pretty real.

    Luca - Also, thanks to you. Your own version on your site was an inspiration!

    Roc - Yes. Although I have not done that many figures, this was by far and away the best cast and fit figure. I usually try to fit everything major together before painting but the dry fit was perfect.

    Marc - I am glad you commented. Thanks for checking it out.

    Phil and Luca - I don't know about continuing with acrylics. My ability to judge dilutions is really pretty bad. Either too thin or too heavy on all my shadings
    and highlights. Oil seems much more intuitive to me. I seem to have a better feel for it. On the other hand, the results I see from Jaime, Calvin and Joe Hudson really make me want to keep trying with the acrylics.

    We'll see :lol:

    Hi Keith

    Yes, like you I find oils just that bit more "user friendly" and although I agree that the Planeteers you mention really do make me think I should be persevering with acrylics, I somehow don't find them that easy. I guess its all about old dogs and new tricks (with me anyway) :lol:

    Regards

    Hey Keith,

    I like the figure. The snow looks great also. Paint with whatever you like. What works best for YOU. I like acrylics, but that is what I started with. But dont limit yourself to one or the other. I will use watercolors, chalks, inks, craft paints, pencils, and anything else lying around. Thanks for sharing your work with us.

    Brad-

    Thanks for the nice comments. I don't really agonize over the medium. Like you mentioned, I'll use almost anything ifit works. :lol:
