    Finally got this little fellow. One of few pieces that are a "must have" for me.
    Decided to create a small scenic for him (something that i m not very fond of)
    One thing lead to another and so i decided to create a night scene under a streetlamp.

    I m not very sure about the size of the gas streetlamp so if you have any suggestion "shoot".

    Looking really good, and will look spectacular when you do the extreme highlights and shadowing of a night scheme. Love the grate at the bottom, breaks up the bricks of the wall. Not sure about the lamp, not an expert, but it looks the right scale and functional.

    Thank you Ben. I think that if done properly it will be pretty nice,
    As for the lamp started building a smaller one just as a back up.
    Now moving on i basecoated everything with a very dark (almost black) blue-black mix and then used an aerograph to spray a yellowish white and get an idea of where lights and extreme lights should be placed.

    A very clever idea and obviously it is giving you a clear view on light and dark. Look forward to the next stages but it looks highly promising already.

    I believe that the measurements of the first streetlamp are quite OK. I would not got too small with it to keep the effect of what you are trying to achieve. It is unlikely that a small lamp would give a large bundle of light.

    Thank you all my friends for taking the time to leave a comment.
    Johan thank you for the advice on the lamp.
    Had some progress with the flesh parts.
    The only thing i m currently certain of are the lights. As for the shadowed areas will probably change as more colors are painted on.

    Mate, when I read what you had planned, I had doubts. How wrong was I?
    Such a simple ply had to be perfectly executed. it was.
    Excellent, super stuff!
