    Hello, everyone.:)

    I have begun to paint a new figure.

    (ZURU WARRIOR VERLINDEN BUST)

    Time is the stock which has passed a lot after this kit is bought.:confused:

    The assembly was easy.

    However ornaments of grass were etching parts, so I had trouble bending that.:(

    A texture was also given to a leather part.:confused:

    Painting is the stage basic painting has ended at present.

    While being close, I'm planning to begin to paint completion.;)

    All comments welcome.

    Nap,

    I am just completing the 75mm Pegaso Gladiator (standing proud with sword stuck in sand in front of him) as an African... I painted the figure floquil weathered black and then heavily dry brushed him in the base coat brown that I had chosen... the figure was eventually completely brown but the shadowed areas under the pectorals,chin, rib delineation, armpits, spine and scapulas, (you get the picture) had the darker coat showing through and was a great map to shadowing and highlighting the figure as I painted (oils over the floquils).

    hope that helps some...

    Mitsutaka,

    I'm following your piece with interest! Very nice flesh tones! Looking good! I'm looking at a buffalo soldier conversion in the near future... will be curious to see what I can learn from you.

    Hi! stefano.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.
    I'm the schedule which doesn't use oil paints for painting of completion this time.
    I'm planning to complete it by acrylic paint.;)
    Thank you for liking it.:)

    Hi! Carl.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.
    An eye is very small for this figure, so I may not be able to draw an eye well.:confused:
    Thank you for liking it.:)

    Hi! Steve.:)

    Hello! Nap.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.
    I applied oil paints thick about a texture.
    After that these were picked with a sharp-pointed brush and texture was put.;)
    After that I blew primer after those dried perfectly.
    Burnt Jenna of an acrylic gouache mixed low amber, black and white, and I blew about the color of the skin.
    Thank you for liking it.:)

    Hello! Kevin D.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind advice.
    Before, I painted ZULU of 120mm.
    This time is a bust model, so I'm thinking the color to change a little.;)
    Thank you for having an interest.;)

    Hi! Pedoro.:)
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.
    I think it changes fairly at the stage of the completion about the fresh tone.:confused:
    Thank you for liking it.:)

    Hi! David.:)

    By the way what happens to progress of the bust of your diver?:)

    I did facial completion painting yesterday.
    I'll complete it only by acrylic paint at first, but I also used oil paints consequently.:confused:

    Hey there Mitsutaka:

    As everyone has already stated, the flesh tones are just wonderful. Every-
    thing so smooth yet capturing the light and shadow so well.

    Well done,
