    I present my version of Young Miniatures WW1 German Stormtrooper. I was going for the look like he was in the 1930 film version of 'All quiet on the Western Front'.
    I used only Jo Sonja's black and white acrylics. The photos make it look like he has a hint of sepia and green mixed in but this is just from the lighting when taking photos in the light box. (Something I need to work on). The actual piece is purely in grey scale.
    Hope you like him. He was a joy to paint.

    Totally agree with BP

    Painting grayscale is really difficult , mind you I like the effect the photography has given it ...nice textured work on the grenade bags

    The face is particularly well done

    Played around with a couple of pics for a Mono effect hope you don't mind ...certainly looks very 1930's

    Thanks for sharing

    Happy benchtime

    He looks great and the black and white treatment really gives this guy that look of hopelessness having endured the conditions of trench warfare, I always have to admire painters who go for painting a figure or bust with a certain effect in mind, I can only imagine the challenge of mixing the colours.

    Super rendition of this bust- very ghostly looking! Lovely textures as Nap says.

    Thanks for the your great responses guys, and thanks Kevin for playing around with photos. This is actually what he looks like with the naked eye.
