A bit of an oddity
I've been really busy with work lately, but today managed to get some painting done. I bought this figure and some others from one of my favourite manufacturers, Artizan Designs. The figure is there not oddball from Kellys Heroes model. I've wanted to pick this figure up for a while as Kelly's heroes is one of my favourite films.
I tried to paint him up to match what the character wears in the film and am pretty pleased with the results. I also took the opportunity to change my painting style/technique. I usually use dark ink washes to add shadows to modesl. This time I have only used ink wash on the metallics and on the base of the skin. The rest of the shadowing is as a result of layering.
I like the results, I have a squad of Jerry's to paint and some others from the thrilling tales range.
