This is a figure I've painted for my wife as a Christmas gift. No, no I don't have problems with her.

It were dark times so the picture are from that time :-D

And she liked it!

Super job, Peter. This figure is on my list as well, but only for me, not as a present... :mrgreen:

What scale is the figure? Wonderful job. My favorite part is the equipment. You have selected perfect colors for his tools of the trade.

Terrific paint job and a very appropriate present for these times. The forum feels well protected now that you've posted these pictures too.

Excellent work on the shades of black and the lantern light effect is very clever. :thumbup:

You have done an incredible job on his tool belt. Rendering leather and metal and making each look so real with subtle colors masterfully applied. Very, very fine work. Using such a limited palette you have achieved remarkable results.

Very nice made Peter.
Also in the clear cover to be protected from dust and easy to clean.
:yeah:

This Xmas I give my sister Flowers.
A set to build from Lego. :-D

So in return your wife`s gift was a map to the door.
Go ?

Lovely work on a terrible subject.

So, this is what Belgian doctors look like... very impressive :mrgreen:
As written above, this figure is splendid, I particularly like the way you painted the leather parts. The light effect in the lantern is great too.
Congratulations!

Thanks Remco! As written she was pleased with it! It is a very original present! And non-violent... that's how you look at it off course. It stays a doctor! :xd:

Thanks Konrad! And yes she does! :-D

Thanks Aaron! The figure is 54mm as Jan said. The equipment was tricky to paint but maybe I had the luck that the walking stick broke off at a certain moment. I could see things better then! ;-)

Thanks Graeme! I do my best to protect the forum, you know that! :-D Shades of black is black with a drybrush of Revell tank grey and light grey. Lantern light starts with red then orange and yellow. ;-)

Thank you David! Indeed not much colors used for that. Metal, brown, leather brown and all covered with some mud wash. After that a little bit of highlighting but not to much. ;-) :thumbup:

Thanks Phil! Oh yes, all Belgian doctors look like that! You don't want to meet them when it is dark! Could be you miss aleg or an arm! :mrgreen: ;-) :thumbup:

For people who generally work on just one figure, it is going to open up a lot of possibilities.

Wow, you made an excellent work on that pretty figure, Peter. :notworthy:

I am glad to see that I am not the only one who gives painted figures to people I appreciate. :mrgreen:

This post is prior to my incorporation to the forum, so I had not been able to read it. It's a wonderful figure, Peter. I'm sure that your mother was very proud to receive so special gift from his favourite son. ;-)
