A Dark & Moody Shot
This is another Mark Copplestone Scavenger and a very fine fellow he is too. He was painted in an evening and I was surprised how quickly the habits of painting 28mm figures came back to me. Things go a lot faster if you block in all the colour at the bgeinning and then start working up your mid tones and your highlights.
Lets shed a little light on it
My only complaint about the figure is that he rocks back on his heels a bit. I might add something to the back of his feet as he won't bend at the ankles and propping the base just makes him look like he is on tip toes.
I also might dirty up the lower part of his coat and his shoes, unless it happens to be a particularly well groomed apocalypse.
All in all I'm not unhappy with him. He's also an extremely well behaved sort of fellow, unlike my 20mm lads who are acting the maggot at the moment and have experienced something of a varnish catastrophe.
Of which the less said the better.
I was listening to this while I painted - hence the name.
