Don't believe him Gary. Drop the lager and there you have it!

The paint work on his face is just stunning! The hair is already looking great as well. Kudo's for capturing the tones and shades of flesh, a difficult thing to do in any scale

Never get into a car with Al without asking if there's any petrol in the tank Gary.

I should have learned my lesson the first time!

It's great craic in Al's car, apart from the range anxiety.

It's all grand on the way to the destination, It's on the way back the petrol gremlins attack!

Sorry for the lack of progress but zero mojo Im afraid. Managed a couple of hours though.
Bit more blending on the face with flesh tones. Need to close the eyes in more and perhaps more defined shadows and highlights.

thanks Shay, all acrylics (very thin), with glaze medium and finished with matt top coat. Some people use pastels and pigments but I find they don't stand up well to the dull coat which is a must.

Thought of trying oils which are easier to blend but they take forever to dry so you can't win.
