I like how you do all those figures and about all commercial books about book paintings- I am not sure they are any better in final results from what Verlinden publish decades ago ;) so keep on your way

I totally agree with you my friend.
More than that: the universe of figure painters is the more hard you can find (at least here in Belgium): how to apply the light; how to paint some uniform colors (having served in the Belgian army I can affirm that there are not two uniforms that are exactly the same!)... I've chose to paint figures for myself; not to show them in expo or contest (exception: figures painted for RetrokiT, like the tiny Star Wars rebel pilots, that Dominique shows on his stand). As I'm painting figures for myself, I just want to paint them a way that is pleasant for me...
So I have tested acrylics for skin; I prefer oil even if I'm not mastering the technique of oil painting
