    Excellent work Jason. The skintones are especially fine!

    Maybe a bit more bare metal showing here and there?

    Thanks Einion! Yes, a bit of bare metal here and there is indeed one of the finishing touches I have yet to put on this bust - good eye!

    Cool Jason, really eye-pleasing work.
    It's so interesting to see how everyone paints differently.
    Your version is outstanding!

    Andreas and Adrian - Thanks guys! I appreciate your feedback.

    Jay - not sure what you're asking, but the pics I've taken of this figure (along with all the pics I've posted in the past here on PF) are just taken at my painting desk with my Fuji Finepix camera - nothing fancy.

    hi jason:

    What I was wondering was what light source to you use? Are you photographing just with a black backround and on the table top? As for the camera, are you setting it on auto or do you set it on manual and adjust the settings? i find that I like you photography as much as you painting

    Beautiful as always, yes deceptive in completion as the jacket/tunic has to look battle field and nothing else.(y)

    Rob - thank you!

    Jay - The light source is just the three-bulb track light I have in my painting room. The black background you see in the pics is just the back of the desk. For the camera, I only adjust the ISO setting - down to 200 so the pics arent so bright and washed out (and no flash).

    Superbe paintwork Jason.
    Is the texture into the figure, or did you do something with the paint??
    It 's great.

    Thanks Marc! The texture effect is just paintwork - I felt any actual texture added to the figure would probably look out of scale. Glad you like it.
