    Carl, Simon, Peter, Håkan, Adrian and Derek ... Many thanks for the comments :)

    Slowly!


    I airbrushed the basic white for the surcoat? using...

    Base English Uniform.
    Mid White ( very thin, several layers )

    I'm saving the highlights till after everything else is done on the torso.....

    The cross is based with Burnt Umber, mid with Vallejo Red and high with GW Blood Red. I'm adding tiny bits of orange to edges just as a final highlight, still a lot of work to do on the transitions :)

    that is looking absolutely stunning Mark.
    The flesh tones are a cut above, great job on what looks nice little out the box paint up.

    Do you care to share your technique on the stubble beard :whistle:

    I like very much the red of the cross. I don´t know if you do that, but I ussualy add a litle bit of white and yellow to the orange to detach a bit more the highlighting.:)

    Carl, Alexandros, Ron (see below), Eduardo, Sam and Rafael ... Many thanks one and all :) Work continues on this piece :)

    Ron the stubble is really just a lot of dots and small streaks of well thinned Burnt Umber and English Uniform, once dry I then break them up a bit using the flesh colours from the face, to get the bright bits its just small touches of Light flesh. Again if they are too bold I dot them with a darker flesh colour to tone them down ... Hope that makes sense? :)

    Okay, so I finished the badge ( device? ) and have been working on the leather and some work on the white tabard thing... I am also trying out a slightly modified shooting set-up hence the arty farty pics ;)

    Hi Mark-just superb, I think it has all been said before-pieces like this raise the bar on just what can be achieved and make the hobby a true art form.

    Look forward to seeing this piece at a show soon? Darlington maybe?..................Keith

    Must be a Glaswegian archer as everyone knows 'we arra peepul' although he's ugly enough to be from Edinburgh.
    Seriously Mark this just gets better and better, absolutely convincing metal painting.

    I agree. All I see in this bust is suberb, but the helmet is totally real, is like the ones that can see at the museums.
