Hello Andy,

It's a very nice work you have done.
You came out with the best rending a Dargon head can give, and the HBT is neither too subtle not too thick.
I think you can apply also swet on his shoulders, but more darker than in its back, reflecting some fresher swet.
My 2 cents
Best,
Julien

Hi Andy. Great work on both the figures and the foilage/base so far. Its looking very promising. The stripes in the highlighted areas works well IMO.

Julien - Thanks for the comment, I may add a little more of the sweat stains but I don't want to overdo it. I prefer a more artistic style rather that true realism. Definitely needs something though.

Frank - Thanks again, I think the small base size really helps the feeling of oppressive jungle (and means I don't have to make too much foliage !)

Main purpose of this was to try out my new camera, how do you think the shots have come out ? Anything else I can do to improve the images ?

Thanks again,

Andy
