    I have achieved some progress on the Polish Hussar. I will be more than happy to hear what you think.

    Here are some pictures:

    Coming along nicely. Love the leopard skin cape... Care to share how you did this?
    Have a Russian Hussar with a similar cape in my grey army. I'd be grateful for your help on this.

    Thanks gents.

    For the leopard skin I have used a mix of yellow ochre, dark flesh, flat yellow and white from vallejo model color as a basecoat. Than I mix different shades of oils from burnt umber, burnt sienna, naples yellow light and white from W&N. Dots with Ivory black and burnt sienna. At the end I discovered that burnt sienna is slightly little do red and dark for dots.

    For the lining of the fur I have used Vallejo mix of reds 70947 and 70926, highlighted later with red 70947 and shadowed with black green.

    Guys, I forgot to include a yellow ochre from W&N to the oil mix for the fur.

    Was it airbrushed over glossy black primer ?
    i heard some people brushing it in with good results
    I'm really looking for the perfect way to render metals since my rwgular vallejo metallics are not quite good
    I would like to try vallejo air metallics. Seems to be doing a great job
    thanks!

    Here is a little progress. Finished wings and some works on the banner, which is extremaly difficult. I consider reds and whites on the flag finished, but if there is something you would like to point it out, please do not hesitate.

    I like your painting a lot. Very rich colors, soft transitions, clean and precise technique. The phto is perfect. I like the subject too. Last week I finished one of this mounted.
    Cheers.
