    Hello All,

    Just finished painting this dude. And if I may "toot my own horn", the pic's do not do it justice. I would have taken closer pic's of the tri-color trim (sorry Dani A.) but in this scale, a close-up, would not be very pleasing to the eye. It looks much better to the naked eye.

    Thanks Dani for the uniform information! :)

    Jason, I am a big fan of "zouaves". I really like the pose, you really did a nice job putting action into the figure. I really like it. Well done! Look forward to seeing more of your work.

    Thanks Olly, Bob and Terry. It was a blast to build and paint but was also an exercise in patience. There was ALOT to paint! Much more work than I thought. Not totally satisfied, but pleased.

    Hi Jason

    again, another inspirational piece. Cool to post the original manequin and reference artwork for the piece as well.

    I agree in that I believe this is your best piece to date.

    Jason,

    I really love how you touched the peaks of highlights with a bright highlight. It makes the figure POP! and come to life.
    Excellent work!
