    Hi all,

    Hereby my latest work. A Young Miniatures buste from a US soldier in a wool coat.
    I love the cold feel of this figure and I try to paint a different light from the left front. So the back side is really dark.
    It was fun to do and the result on the front is good. The back isn’t what I had in mind but it’s okay.

    All painted with vallejo acryls

    Thanks to Magnus for a great inspiration

    Wonderful painting. I'm guessing we're looking at a case of "stippling" here? That seems to be an increasingly popular technique for achieving a textured effect on clothing.

    Very nice work. The texture looks great and you captured the winter lighting really well. To me the back looks just fine.

    Steve, yes I used the sippling technique here. It cost me 3 paintbrushes :)

    Cracking result on the bust , the lighting works well , and as usual the overall effect of a battle hardened soldier is achieved
