    After a break due to a health issue, I finally got back to this and am substantially done with the painting. There are a few details to hit and then get him on a base. It's the first time I've done black cloth and, while not the greatest, I'm satisfied that I've moved further down my relearning journey.

    I think you have done a great job on the black, a really nice figure in all respects.

    This needs a few tweaks - though I do need to realize when it's time to stop - but since I got a halfway decent phots I thought I'd post Mr. Strawn at this "nearly done" stage. I wish I had better photography skills; It does look better in person.

    Here's a video that might give a better idea:

    Impressive, he really has come out a treat, all your hard work has paid dividends, it really is a super figure. I feel your pain with the photography though, we need a roving PF photographer who can pop in when needed, in an ideal world anyway.

    Thanks, Simon. As usual with me, it took awhile but it was worth it. I got it done just in time for my heart ablation procedure this coming Friday!

    .Simon, I forgot to mention that I did indeed try the Mars Black and it made big difference. Thanks for the tip.

    Some photos of the final piece. I've been unable to get pictures with a sharp focus but that's okay because it hides the many imperfections! He looks better at the real 54mm size.

    Photography permitting he still looks good mate, black isn't easy but you've got it good.
