Test painting some 1805 Russians the army painter way.  This is skeletal bone primer then soft tone.  You see the detail clearly and it's AMAZING!  **Updated with photos, figured out with web help on how to use image shack to host.  Sorry for learning curve!!***

All I can see is a little blue square with a question mark in it.

I see no detail. !!!!


Through the travail of the ages Midst the pomp and toil of war Have I fought and strove and perished Countless times upon this star.
So as through a glass and darkly The age long strife I see Where I fought in many guises, Many names but always me.
So forever in the future Shall I battle as of yore, Dying to be born a fighter But to die again once more.

Wondering if I'm waiting for moderator approval.  Also might need some instructions!

Making progress....and figured how to post pics through image shack.  My hand is not super steady, but I think they are turning out ok.  These need more work:  cuffs and color, musket stock and barrel, dots for brass... then maybe a light soft tone wash to finish.  Comments?

I picked this up on the forum about faces - black or brown first coat then a dab of flesh on the nose, chin, cheekbones, ears (if visible). The wash in soft tone should work well.

Hello Munds3!

Fabulous start, good stuff.

I paint from the bottom up and then from the inside out. It allows you to position your brush better and straighten your lines/cuts as you move up and out. For example in order I paint boots, pants, coats, belts, collars, face, hair, hats, musket, roll, backpack, the rest is easy.

Best regards,

Glenn
