“On The Edge of No Man’s Land” – Part 2
So I think I’ve got my energy back a bit for painting now which is nice. I’ve spend some time today working on the poor soldiers face trying to add a bit more color to it so it doesn’t look so damn pale and after a bunch of glazes it’s starting to look better.
I’m quite happy with how it’s turning out. I still need to blend the layers together more and add some more highlighting and make some parts cooler and some a bit warmer but there won’t be a lot more highlights as his head is bend down so the face doesn’t get much light.
The first thing I did was to paint the eyes, something I’ve always been nervous about. At 28mm I rarely bother to paint the eyes and I haven’t had much experience painting them on larger scaled miniatures either so it was a good experience.
I’m not 100% happy with them and I think I’m going to go over them with some glazes and make the white spot slightly bigger.
