Yes, you read NNMM right! It's non-non metallic, metallic! Haha. This was my first attempt at NMM. So I decided to bite off more than I could chew by trying to replicate the style that Kirill, Michal, Dmitry etc have developed where items are reflected in the metals. I know that the legionary's armor wouldn't be as reflective but this was an experiment to see if I could figure it out. Although I think I failed, I cannot help but see beauty in the impressionist-like nature of the reflected materials. So I decided to keep going. Anyway, in failure, I learned a whole heap that allowed me to quickly do NMM at the Dogma48 challenge last weekend. Next time I do NMM I might just keep it a little more simple than going straight for the tough stuff LOL.

    It’s a precise and detailled paintjob, but I don’t really agree the final result that makes me think of tin dish and not a figure .... Sorry, this does not in any way call into question your level. The good thing is that you have ventured out of your comfort zone and it’s respectable.

      To be honest I don’t understand what you’re trying to say but thank you none the less.

    Interesting solution to the face of the young warrior turned a grizzled veteran.

      Not quite sure how to take the ‘props’ vote… but thanks none the less.

    A pretty fine stab at something a little different! It’s tricky to pull of even in 2D!…Looks like you did him as a ‘German Auxilla’? ( I have this one in my ‘to do’ box) Nice to see this bust tackled in this way. Gold!

      Thanks Clive. Yes you guessed right. I imagined him approaching the Germanic hoard coming out of the forest into the clearing ready to do battle.
