Excellent work bro, the eyes are especially well rendered - difficult in 1/35th (54 mm) - congratulations!!! A nice touch with the 2nd AD (Hell on Wheels) patch.

Rafael,
Excellent job here ! colors blending is sweet, the oeverall tones you use reflects the cold atmosphere. Nice pink touch on the end of the nose ! Did you hand painted the shoulder patch ? If so congratulation, because it looks like a decalco.
lastly, what happen to the right glass of the mask ? It like if there was a mismolding, like little holes
Best,
Julien

Very nice! Good job overall... I like how you did uniform shading, nice and smooth color transitions. The patch looks great and the face is perfect.

Really cool!
