    1. Jac is coming after Tower, Chris. Gotta shut down Tower's 'Shutout' shenanigans!

  2. Beautiful painting. It looks like you pushed the shadows much deeper than you usually do. I really like darker look.

    1. Thank you, John! That's great feedback. I've been striving for more contrast for a long time, and it's hard for me to gauge whether I'm making progress on that front. I could still use more contrast near the temple regions of the dude's head and more tones on the head overall. I'm going to leave him unvarnished while I work on the other two figures, in case I'm motivated to do some touch-ups on Jac.

  4. I've just found this blog whilst searching for inspiration for my own Fishermen. I particularly like the realistic aged look of the leather belt and trousers. Is that done with a sponge? A brush? Something else?

    1. Thank you, Andy! For the belt, I used a brush to add scratches and dings. For the trousers, I think that just might be good luck from the color choice. I don't think I did anything there other than standard shading. I often use washes, so that might have added a little bit of interest, through filters or grittiness or both.

      Thanks for commenting!
