    Are you sure you're seeing the same guy/pic Brian? You're not somewhere else eh since your work pC plays games on you and does not allow you to see pics properly lol!

    Sorry then, just my impression, if he is meant to be casual or happy, then the poor guy must be heavily constipated. Doesn't the middle photo suggest that he is at least a bit unhappy. Sorry for butting in. I should not comment on figures, they are not my line.

    I prefer to see them in the flesh il-lejla ghalekk ma peclaqt xejn, imma jidher li mixi. For the snow use Cratacci's technique of resin and Micro Baloons, anke ghas-snowman.

    I am no figure expert, but I have to agree with brian on the face expression of one of the figures. The other one is fine but the first one looks that he has forced smile, or at most a sarcastic depressed smile. Just an opinion.

    I saw them in the flesh and i still think that the guy is not at all happy. Neither am i but i don;t put on that face unless i am opening the electricity bill or my paycheque. If you manage to paint that guy to seem like he is smiling, i will say that you are one hell of a damn good figure painter.

    Ejja SAMMYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY uriehom x'taghllimt u x'taf bounce

    Joking apart, Brian, a smile & a whince produce a different facial expression as you engage different facial muscles for each IMHO, and again IMHO that guy is smiling, so it would be no MAGICAL FEAT on Samwel's part (with all due respect) or on whoever paints that face, to paint him SMILING Laughing Very Happy Laughing Very Happy

    Just told you so you won't get DISILLIUSIONED and BLINDED by Sam's painting prowess Suspect

    ok here it is my first US drab uniform....I took alex's advice and go for a dark drab colour like suggested...DONT KNOW IF I GOT THE COLOUR THOUGH....

    please enlighten me Wink Smile

    some areas need some blending yet Smile

    P.S. the meaning of a drab colour was described as a greyish green colour since i am color blind i cant compare colours lool i relied on this word Smile
