Manfred von Richthofen und Moritz 54mm
« on: August 05, 2018, 02:12:56 AM »
After realizing that I would not be able to finish my projects without rushing for the IPMS Nationals, held right here in my home state of Arizona .... I decided to have a little fun and practice on a figure I have had laying in a drawer for the last 5 years or so.... Time to learn how to paint figures ( I have enough of them) I started him about a week & half out from the convention .... finished last Wednesday .... This is my third ever figure .... he is painted with artist oils & acrylics..... Very relaxing & enjoyable .... so if any of you ever get bogged down on a project ..... give a figure a try ..... you just might be pleasantly surprised ....

Great figures, especially like the colors on Moritz (MvR is also very good).

Nice couple! Without disliking the human the dog is the one I like most. The colors are absolutely realistic.

That's pretty good for your third figure! The flesh tones are great and you've done very well with the short haircut, also the shading on the uniform and boots is very good. The leather on the jacket is perhaps a little flat but it's hard to get a good leather finish, that's tough to pull off. As others have said, Moritz is superb, you've done a fantastic job on what is a pretty hard subject.

Very nice work, I suggest you dig out some more figures from the draw!

Very nice!  That's pretty darn good for only your third figure.
