    I'm looking forward to the goggles I hope to paint some depth in them because I don't like the box-art look of them

    For now happy holidays

    Nice work Martin. The "teddy-bear" suit (winter tank overall) is not as dark as it has been depicted on the box-art. I'm sure you'll have a handle on it.

    Have a good holiday break!

    That's a great start, Martin. I'm getting really interested in this sketchy approach, have you had any experience sketching several colors as a undercoat before blending the skin tones?
    Cheers!

    thanks all, I hope you had some nice holidays and some time to paint. I've blend the most part of the face and painted the moustache and eyebrows.

    @ Lucas, I followed a workshop of Kiril Kanaev with does it this way. The difficult part is the blending but isn't that always?

    All painted with Vallejo.
    Base: brownsand
    Shade: added Burn Cad.Red, Burn umber and some violet red.
    Hgihlights: added basic skintone

    Tones: Yollow ocker, old rose and middelstond
