Looks great John.  The only comment I would make (and I couldn`t paint any of these small figures if I wanted to) is perhaps the dark blue is a bit consistent and maybe break that up a little with some mottling pattern perhaps? And add a little brown tone to the bone so it looks a little more like bone (bit white at the moment).


What does the full figure look like?

I will be posting a more complete image soon. I am waiting on some maskol to allow me to pattern the bones and wing so they are tied but broken up.

Really nice John- total kudos to you for working in such a small scale- certainly beyond my abilities.

No way I could paint stuff this small any more - this looks great! Might I suggest you look at liquid latex mask (from the art shop) as a potential masking tool? I`ve had a lot of success with this in the past, and any that`s left over give a nice rotting flesh look.

Yeah maskol is a product by humbrol. It has a flow aid like additive that allows it to be painted easier and it dries in with the latex so comes off easier... However it won`t arrive until Monday. .. I hate having to a wait

So still waiting on maskol to arrive bit here is a picture of the whole kit. Not the best but my phone is dying a slow and bleeping death.

And the back.. i`m starting to think I should lighten the skin a little. Maybe splatter on some lighter spots.
