    Hello, everyone.:)
    I have completed a figure today.
    (U.S. MARINE PACIFIC, VERLINDEN120mm) I used VALLEJYO - COLOR about painting.

    I could concentrate on painting of a figure now after I started to use this paint.;)

    Maybe the pace of my production becomes earlier than the front.

    It was difficult that I paint about a face.:confused:
    An acrylic gouache may be used here.
    I blew MATTvernish and put out gloss by the last process.

    Anyway all comments welcome.;)

    Nicely done, Mitsutaka. Very smooth graduation and natural tones. I think the atmosphere of your work is changing a little bit, by using Vallejo acrylics, What do you think?

    Hi Mitsutaka,

    It's wonderful to see how your painting has improved and now that you are using Valejo acrylics you seem to be painting with more confidence than ever.

    Hi my Friend,
    You have done a great job at painting and I think all of this work as a whole puts into the atmosphere in the figure represents.
    Bravo!!

    Thank you very much, everyone.

    Hi! Gordy.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.
    I added a little blue to flesh color and made about an arter.
    Thank you for liking it.;)

    Hi! Nick.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.
    The outline is clearer for the pattern of the helmet actually.
    But the CAMO pattern wasn't liked, so I used a hand piece.:confused:
    I think the one of the manner of your expression is accurate and correct.:)
    Thank you for liking it.;)

    HI! John.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.
    I think I could enjoy painting now more than the front.
    I'm a beginner about this paint, so I'd like to study more.
    Thank you for liking it.;)

    Hi! Pedoro.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.
    I'm not a fan of VERLINDEN.
    If I'm looking for a low-price 120mm figure, I'll be so.:confused:
    I'll paint 120mm figure of an alpine at the time when a euro ends.:)
    Thank you for liking it.;)

    Hi! Kazufumi.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.
    You're right.
    The tone of my work, the feel of a material, I'm coming to make them give priority.:confused:
    I was painting with the flashy color.
    But I came to think whether such color exists actually.:confused:
    The flashy color tends to catch person's eyes.
    But its color will thrust away a person immediately.
    I came to go to a euro 3 times and consider such thing.
    I'm thinking the color I made was the very artificial color when thinking now.
    There are no changes in the case that VALLEJYO - COLOR is used.:)
    Thank you for liking it.;)

    Hi! Tony.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.
    The skill which is itself by my using VALLEJYO - COLOR, UP, that means I'm not thinking.
    But I think I recovered a confidence a little as you said certainly.
    Anyway I'm this paint and it's very fun to paint.
    Handling is troublesome an acrylic gouache and oil paints.:confused:
    The result is in right now in VALLEJYO, so I can move to the next step immediately.
    So I could concentrate on painting now.
    If it's when night's surcoat is painted, wonderful coloring of oil paints may be needed.
    I was doing that, too.
    But I was to see a work at a euro directly, and started to think my color is too artificial.
    It may be the one a person is just asking for something one doesn't have.
    Anyway thank you for liking it, my friend Tony.;)

    Fantastic here Mits, very nicely done, I like your ground work, good job with the Acrylics.:)
  11. cptan Member

    Dear Mitsutaka,

    I have the same figure in my stash.... just wonder what colour to use for US marine green...

    May I know which VALLEJO colour code did you used?

    Great paint job. I love it.

    Thank you very much, everyone.

    Hi! My friend Alexandros.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.
    Feel with the to be quiet and not to be sharp color tone does me as you say.
    I like this atmosphere at present.:)
    It was possible to emphasize a contrast, but I thought the feel of a material disappeared, so I stopped.
    Thank you for liking it.;)

    Hi! Rob.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.
    It was possible to change all elements of a figure to VALLEJYO with this.
    I was using for only a ground work so far.
    The picture is a little dark, but the real thing is the brighter color.
    I won't know why it'll be this.:confused:
    I also thought I process the image, but I don't use to process the image about a figure.
    Thank you for liking it.;)

    Hi! CPTan.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment and question.
    The color I used, 70967 (olive green) and 850 (medium olive) 923 (Japan uniform) was mixed as uniform-color.
    This was set as the color of the basis of a uniform.
    However this compounding is the premise blown by a hand piece from the top of black preimer.:)
    I think brush coating doesn't give me the same effect.
    I have added ivory to that about highlights and have added black or darker green about a shade.
    Thank you for liking it.;)

    Hi! Mark.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.
    What kind of acrylic do you use?
    I'm a fan with your uniform color.:)
    I will keep it up, of course.
    Thank you for liking it.;)

    Very nice Mitsutaka...

    I've always liked this figure (and I'm not a fan of the newer generation large scale Verlinden figures). You've done this figure great justice! Keep cranking them out Mitsutaka.

    Thank you very much, Dan.

    Hi! Dan.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.
    I think it may be the last excellent work of 120mm figure of VERLINDEN.
    I don't like about anything released newly at present.
    Anyway I'm thinking I should say good-bye with VERLINDEN by and by.:confused:
    Thank you for liking it.;)

    A work next to me is (GERMAN INFANTRY OFFICER 120mm) of an alpine.
    While being close, I'm planning to begin to paint.:)
    Thank you for liking it.;)

    wow wow, another masterpiece Mitsutaka, the pacific figures are in trend right now and you do it.
    I'm interested to see a pic of your whole figures collection, because you paint one 120mm figure so fast, your desk should be overcrowded!!
