Some more from Udo Spreng

Any and all superlatives apply to Udo's work. I thought I would break ranks a bit to venture some observations. There is very little pure black on these figures. Udo is a master of grays and saves the black for a few select areas that are recessed. I also don't think he uses much if any metallic paints and has mastered using NMM non-metallic metals which is incidentally a great way to introduce reflected colors from surrounding areas which gives a more homogenous look to the whole. Lastly, I don't think he uses any pre-made fleshtones but mixes them all himself. I spent a good hour perusing this thread and all his amazing work here. If any of these speculations aren't true I would be very interested to know. I can see a good deal of improvement since the first figures so there is no telling what kind of mind-blowing work he may bless us with in the future. You are a rare talent indeed Udo.

I have some figure that I started years ago and still have not finished. Does that count?

I always love seeing Highlanders painted, and especially by Udo, but agree, I’m used to marvelling at the close ups!

Agree with Peter and Bill. The bottles, though, look empty!
