    Great sculpting, Stephan! It's a toss-up as to whether I like "Red River" or "The Searchers" more! Great idea for a figure! Are you going to do anything else with this?

    All the best,

    Hi Stephan,

    You got an attractive figure here. John Wayne's one of my favourite movie stars too. I guess that's some childhood nostalgia.

    About the painting: IMO some of the highlights are not placed on the proper places in relation to each other and considering a zenithal light source. The highest lights always have to be on the top site of the figure and here they aren't. I reworked one of your photos to point out a few 'problem zones' regarding this matter. You'll notice that the lights on the shoulder and upper arm are darker than the lights on the sleeve. I think the figure could do with some darker shades in well chosen places too, creating more depht.


    Best regards.
