Just wanted to say great pictures by Roberto Casti on contributions page. The painting is great and I was really impressed by the rain and snow effects. How did you do that?
Yes indeed, that last picture is phenomenal! Great painting Roberto!
Great painting job, Roberto. Your hard work really excentuates the great sculpting on both the summer and winter Cuirrasier's.
Thank you, Roberto. Thank you S*R.
Just out of curiosity; what figure did you use for the officer?
Hi Jon,Christiaan,Dave and Duco
first of all thank you so much for your messages.
Unluckily I didn't had enough time to paint all the figures of the fantastic new French Strelets sets. I really had fun with them. They have a kind of soul in my opinion.
I used kitchen salt for the snow in the ground and over the officer's shoulders. And as far as the rain and snow effects, they are made with Photoshop. My hobby often meets my profession .
The officer comes from the HYTTY's Napoleonic Polish Infantry. I did his cloak with simple plasticine.
Thanks again guys. And to Strelets too.
Great job! I cant wait to see more contribution from you. Thanks for the idea of using the HYTTY officer figure.
Especialy very nice and impressive the latest 2 compositions!
sorry if I sound too boring but THANK YOU! Really.
Unfortunately my sets are usually temporary, just made for a photo session, often in the kitchen's table.
It's nice to share ideas and visions with you.
