    Hi all!

    After Goth weekend I got the obligatory cold so decided ( in my delerium ) to do this little gem!

    I had already cleaned, mounted and primed it as I really wanted to do this piece.

    The sculpt by Moz is great and after doing the grey for the initial boxart and then seeing Iguazzu's sublime colour art work I scrounged one off Stu at Euro last year and stasched it :)

    The Pugri is still in the early stages and I'm basing it loosely on one from here. It's a 1913 Probyns horse example.

    Pictures... Btw. I have no idea what colour his eyes were so I thought blue would help offset the blues of the pugri :)

    That IS a powder free vinyl glove wrapped around the piece to allow for handling :)

    And please weigh in with any info as my knowledge of this period is virtually nil LOL

    Nice looking face and I am glad you cleared up what the "protective" cover is......I was wondering, you know, with Goth weekend and all! ;)
    This is going to look nice when done.

    As usual up to you excellent standards but if I was to make a critical comment it would be that I would have expected his skin colour to be even darker due to the sun,climate etc especially as the turban gives much less protection than the brim of a hat.Only an opinion.

    More work on the head gear, next will be some dark bands, (thin) and then some shading to hopefully pull it all together :)

    Ometz, Barrie, Steve and Chris .... Thanks chaps :)

    Jenghiz .... I thought about a redder, slightly burnt look but looking at the pictures of Probyn posing in the studio shots I can't see any hint of it. I also quite like the contrast of the exotic equipment and his pale complexion, a juxtaposition kinda. And thank you! :)

    Brian and Gells ... Thank you!! :)

    Marcin ... Thanks! And see below for colour shout outs :)

    Swralph, Steve, Maco and David ... Thank you very much!! :)

    No update today as work kept me quite busy today and then my add blocker blocked PF!! And I'm off to the pub shortly to play cards and get drunk LOL :)

    For the Pugri I used

    Base GW Regal Blue
    Mid GW Shadow Grey
    High Mid with a Tiny touch of AV White

    The Gold bands are

    Base AV Green Ochre
    High Base and AV White 1:1 ( I thinned it well and added it in many layers )
    Shade will be AV smoke ( I should have done a burnt Umber Base but Meh! we all make mistakes :) )

    Light blue panels are

    Base AV Dark Prussian Blue and AV Sky Blue mixed 1:1
    High Base and AV White at 2:1

    I will need to solidify the shadow on this colour but will wait until I have used the AV Smoke shader first...

    Thanks again everyone!

    :)


    Here he is all wrapped up on the base ( from Pete's Bases ( anyone have a link to him?? ))
