More from Doktor Saxonstein’s paint laboratory

Mwah-ha-ha-ha! I’m beginning to wonder if trying different paints and colours for this trial figure is having an effect on my sanity and I’m not seeing the wood for the trees any more (aside: did anybody watch “My Family” on BBC1 last night?). Anyway, here’s the latest tweak – some slight repainting of the shako. It’s the same colour palette as previously but I’ve tried to introduce more folds.
I think this is a definite improvement but it’s still not quite what I have in my mind’s eye as the desired final outcome. I’ve put the previous incarnation (left) side-by-side with the the latest unpdate (right) for comparison and I’ve reverted to my usual 200 pixel tall picture (rather than 250 pixels used in recent posts). On my screen at home, 200 pixels is about the actual size of the figure. If you see what I mean.
Anyway, keep the comments coming – they’re proving very helpful.
