77th regiment of foot

Post  smallia on Thu Feb 18, 2010 12:25 am

Guys,this is the figure that nearly drove me nuts.A beautiful figure but a pain to paint.It's smaller than 54mm actually.Anyway, hope you like it

Steve

Do you use flash to take the pics? You have to avoid that at all cost.

Good work Steve

I love the drum and it's colours on ... yep I know the feeling when painting something almost 1/35 ... apart that this is a boy and comes even smaller!

Nice work Stephen Wink as for the picture, you can edit the colors with a simple click using Picasa (it's free)

Picasa is a program similar to photoshop but not so complex and with less features.

This is what I did. It's not that different but as you can see the yellowish image is gone.
