    Looks fantastic. The finish of particularly the leather and metal is outstanding.
    I think the camo of the jacket is a bit bright, and could be toned down a bit.
    That wooden stock on the MG42 looks superb too.

    Great work, very realistic but (stupid me) what is a pva-tempera ???

    Hans,


    Tempera is (and I'm sure you know that) a kind of painting medium very much used by many artists for centuries: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tempera

    I'm no expert on this, but as some of our Russian fellow members here mention it all the time some time ago I asked "Kaws", who pointed me in the right direction (here, post #16: https://www.planetfigure.com/threads/viriatus.122502/#post-958869 ) .

    Anyway, if I got it right, in the old days it was mainly egg-tempera that was used, nowadays it seems that the tempera used is mainly, or often, based on PVA.


    Cheers!

    Your paintwork is always great.....It's your presentation that appears a bit too tall for my taste. I'm not going to tell you what to do; but think in this case taller is not better. Keep up the good work.
    It's only my opinion.

    As far as I'm concerned, it's a very good piece of art.

    I like it!!!
    If you want feedback, I think the teeth look a little odd, maybe a little dark in some parts or something like that.
    Other than that its great work

    Hi Constatine

    Thanks for sharing this , a real nice cleanly painted piece , agree with the comments mentioned

    For me the leatherwork , ammunition belt and the shovel wear are particularly good .....like the addition on the base but Wayne's right IMO of course ..very tall ,would possibly put it on a wider base for more stability

    Always good to see your artwork

    Happy benchtime
