Some more from Udo Spreng

I don't think they should have holes. Metallic solid buttons is my guess. Otherwise I think he would have done just that! Great work as usual!

I add my voice to the choir in praise of Herr Spreng's magnificent skill and creativity. Bravo Maestro! We are initiates at the Master's feet.

I have express my opinion for mr.Spreng's work again in the past, but just hitting the "like" button is too poor for such an excellent work. :yeah: :-D

The face on the Highlander is outstanding amongst Udo's work, which makes it of a high quality indeed.

I also like the Eastern Front German soldier in the greatcoat. I haven't seen Udo do too many WWII figures, but I am glad he did this one.

Well... er... no. Looks nice, but it suffers on some points to be considered 'perfect' if you ask me. I really like how he paints faces and flesh, that's great. But sometimes, as on the Highlander, it looks as if the degree of shading doesn't perfectly correspond on all parts of the figure given that light falls in from the same angle. In my eyes, it's a 90percent - and no, I won't claim that I'd be able to do what he does. And nevertheless I'm having some argues, I still respect that guy a lot and like what he's painting. ;-)

At first: for Cameron Highlanders, crossbelts look too dark in my opinion. I also find the kilt rather less convincing - maybe it's because the light is too dark, but I can't really see a green/blue pattern and don't see any red lines at all. Finally, the socks are wrong. And I would like to see the Yes, I know - I'm a bl***y nitpicker... but I would like to see the backside of that Highlander as well as the other side of that German infantryman.

I appreciate Sascha's hostorical points of emphasis. Any patterns like the plaids cannot possibly be recreated at this scale, they can only be suggested. I have noticed that some outstanding figure painters, Udo included, sometimes make artistic decisions based on what will appeal for the look of the figure even if it is not 100% historically accurate.

I hope Udo will keep on showing us his work, and Zed1 will keep the discussion going when he does.

We have far above 30°C here.
All on his base is burned down to ashes.
But the Wehrmacht is running around with coat, gloves and scarf !

Another eye candy for the forum.
