    Hello, everyone.:)
    I have completed the lastest model at last.
    I used oil paints for completion.
    It's used quite more than usual.

    I couldn't find good painting about a ground work.:confused:

    If everyone would enjoy himself with this, I'm happy.;)

    All comments welcome.

    Greetings Mitsutaka:

    For me the key word here, is PASTEL. . . such a lovely job of painting this
    figure. The photos are wonderful. The black surround works so well in this
    instance, altho I have been critical of that approach with some pictures, in
    the past. And your flesh tone work is so fine. I'm like Kermit the Frog,
    Green with envy. . . well a little bit maybeeeeee. Could Be???? :)

    The rendering of both hands with those beautiful flesh tones are worth the
    price of admission all by themselves. I really like the base so much and
    the name plate. In total, a really very classy presentation. Congratulations,

    You like Verlinden, Mitsutaka. Excellent painting, but not your usual elaborate groundwork.
    But I suppose that your a bit limited with a submariner.

    Hi Mitsutaka,

    This has turned out rather nicely! I especially like the way you paint the clothes, the colours blend so well.

    Too bad about the lack of reference on groundwork. Then again the pose of this kit is not very elaborate about the context or environment he is in. Just a dude standing there. But as far as Verlinden kits go, this is one of the better bunch. Will be years before I paint mine...

    Hello Mitsutaka,

    That's a very clean and tidy paint job on this classic figure!
    You have managed to get some smooth colour transitions.
    I can only say: I congratulate completion! :)

    Only one comment/question: didn't you forget the eagle on his side cap?

  6. gothicgeek A Fixture

    Great work as always Mitsutaka!

    and I like the simple base work too !

    Hi Mitsutaka,

    very well done, it seems a real Kapitänleutnant(y)

    Thank you very much, everyone.

    Hi! Rick.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    And also thank you very much for your kind explanation.
    I'm thinking I'll return to a basis of painting.
    I'm practicing a technique of blending by oil paints in particular.
    And it was considered so that I might apply and be separated perfectly.
    The chroma could be done thick.
    But I set it as the quiet chroma like "pastel" so that you might say.;)
    I'm happy because you like it.:)

    Hi! Carl.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    I don't also like VERLINDEN in particular.
    However when figure of a white metal is sold, I can't buy it at this scale.
    It would be something very expensive.:confused:
    Unfortunately I think this ground work isn't the level which can be met.
    When considering that I say a soldier of a navy, I couldn't find a good idea.
    Thank you for liking it.:)

    Hello! Nagai.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    Earth in case of was that I adjust a foot of a figure, and a ground work could adjust the inclination of the figure.
    However the ground was flat in this case, so it was a little unbalanced work.:confused:
    This case feels a lot in old figure in case of of VERLINDEN.
    Thank you for liking it.:)

    Hello! Adrian.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    The street you say, "smooth", I wanted to accentuate.
    I think I could give this up and also make the figure a painting style a little more.
    My problem now is the word to which I say "more politely".:confused:
    Is a side cap the right side?;)
    I checked it, but there were no molds.
    I didn't have detailed material about this figure.
    I think so it's my mistake.:eek:
    Thank you for liking it.:)

    Hi! Mark.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    The pace of the making is rising again for me.
    While being close, it's expected to paint a new work.
    I also expect your work very much.
    I receive various inspiration from your work.
    I'm looking forward to completion of your work.
    Thank you for liking it.:)

    Hi! Pedro.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    Well, I know almost no soldier of a navy.:confused:
    A sample of a package was consulted, but I think there was also an incomplete part.:rolleyes:
    Thank you for liking it.;)

    This is a great painting.

    Did you intend for his hair and eyebrows to be so yellow?
  10. unknown01 New Member

    Thank you very much, Michael.

    Hello! Michael.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    I think it was too flashy about hair as you said.:confused:
    I used light yellow of oil paints, but I should add white or gray and lose the chroma a little more.:eek:
    Thank you for liking it.;)

    Hi Mitsutaka,

    Congrats on your nicely painted figure!(y) Very nice detail as well!:D

  12. Hammond_Lord Member

    Mitsutaka-san you did a wonderful paint job on Herr Kapitänleutnant! Excellent choice of colors and transitions!

    This was my favorite figure, but sadly, it's out of production.

    Best regards,

  13. megroot A Fixture

    Excellent work Mitsutaka.
    How did you made the blond hair.

  14. unknown01 New Member

    Thank you very much, everyone.

    Hi! Jim.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    Well, this figure was bought, but I couldn't make immediately.
    It was for the first time that I make a soldier of a navy, so while considering ground work processing, time has passed.:confused:
    It was "hard-luck" that this figure has been bought.;)
    I think the figure is good, but I think I could use that if a base attached.
    Thank you for liking it.:)

    Hello! Nemanja.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    Yes, this figure is an out of production.
    I think, such product have a lot of famous stories.;)
    I don't like 120mm figure of present VERLINDEN so much.:confused:
    Thank you for liking it.:)

    Hi! Marc.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    An eyebrow was picked with the brush with sharp hair ends after oil paints were applied thick.
    When it's done this way, oil paints seem to develop like thread and be hair.
    I'm a fan of Mr. Hardy who is a member of PF.:)
    I observed his work and I thought it's done this way.
    I'm not thinking Mr. Hardy is doing the same thing of course.:confused:
    I knew his DVD to be published in the discussion, but I live in Japan.
    So I don't know the way to buy it.:(
    By all means I'd like to GET and I'd like to improve my skill.;)
    Thank you for liking it.:)

    Another nicely finished figure Mitsutaka, my only comment would be that I think the hair is a bit too yellow.

    Cheers David

    Mitsutaka, superb finish to another classic. (y)

    Great painting Mitsutaka, i like a lot how you have handled the clothing , bravo !!


  18. tissibzh Active Member

    excellent painting job
    what could be your next figure Mitsutaka? a verlinden one!!
  19. Jamie Stokes Well-Known Member

    well done,

    very smooth colour.

    For groundwork, it could something as simple as cobblestones, with a coil of rope, perhaps?

  20. 1969 A Fixture

    Mitsutaka very nice execution of this fine figure, i like your version and the painting is very smooth with great blending.

    I also think the hair may be too Yellow and would benefit from a light brown wash maybe just to tone it down slightly, just a small point but otherwise exellent figure.
