    Managed some pics Sad

    The first two are in the early stages of eye detail and base coat. The 3rd, 4th and 5th are as it is up to now, that is base coat plus highlights. 6th, 7th and 8th are the same but with camera set to Auto instead of Incandecent light as the previous three, and only AutoAdjust on Photo Editor.

    Still experimenting but I think that with the camera set on incandescent light is slightly better Sad

    See you soon cheers

    Ray they are not bad at all. I know that they cannot beat seeing the real thing but one can already see the amazing work you have done on that face. Truly impressive and they guy now had a great expression. If the figure had feelings, i am sure he would be glad that you are painting him. Lovely haversack too!!
