    Very nice work on the skin tones. I love the way you worked the area around the eyes.
    About the eyes, I agree with [USER=7042]Arsies[/USER]. Eyes looks a little bit small than they should be.

    Cheers!

    You have mastered the art of the fleshtones with the acryics and each piece just get better, oustanding in every way:cool:

    Laurent ... Many thanks :)

    Richie ... Thank you! :)

    Steve... Cheers! :)

    David ... Your too kind. It's all in acrylics :)

    Ken .. Thanks and it will be at Darlo .. distracted from those flats again :(

    Javier ... Thanks for the comments :) I too like high contrast but I keep trying different levels on different pieces. This just worked out as lower contrast than my usual :) I kept the iris small compared to the whites to give him a mean look, I prefer a bit small on the eyes to a bit big as it ends up looking too cute :) That's not to say I may alter them yet though :)

    Alex ... Thanks again :)

    Tommi .... Long way to go yet but thank you too ;)

    Ronnie ... Again thank you! :)



    Phew! That took some doing :)

    Work on the hat has been fun, the goggles metal and glass parts need some more work....

    Ow that does look excellent Mark! You really nailed the face, it looks so realistic.
    Keeping the contrast in the face down was a great idea.

    Incredible stuff, Mark. Best face you've done so far (of the many impressive ones you've done).

    Incredable painting Mark. For me the eye proportions are spot on for the look you have achieved here, not an easy task.
    Dare I suggest for the goggles; a reflection of a mountain landscape. I have always wanted to try this out but have never had a figure with reflective glass. It works well on polished breast plates, though you can get away with murder there.

    Rodrigo ... Thank you :)

    Stephen ... Many thanks :) So many more to paint too! ;)

    Keith ... Cheers! :) I'm undecided about the goggles reflection. Being plate glass the reflection will be un distorted, might be a bit much visually. Still I could always paint it out again :)

    Richie ... Thanks and see you at S&L Saturday :)

    Grant ... Cheers ;)

    Lew J ... Thanks! :)

    Markus .. Many thanks :)

    Marc ... Again thank you! :)

    Working on the tunic. Looks okay :/
