thanks for the intresting link - but in 1/72 it´s useless to paint eyes. Even in 28mm it´s sometimes really odd. They are looking like big fishes or as if the tey see something very terrrifying.
The best part oft this site is the littel essay about the painting basics. This is the point - here you can find the difference between the boys and the men.... :-D

I like the comment " and when you are finished this is what your eyes should look like" If I was to try that on 1/72 bods my eyes would be all red and sore from squinting :-)
Nice link though :thumbup:

I agree completly about the eye thing, but if someone wants to give it a go, its a way to do it

..Hi all..I don't really agree with that....I think it depends of the quality of the sculpting....

AND the painter. Not surprised that Oniria doesn't agree since I've seen his faces. They are great!
