44th Regiment of Foot


I just completed my painting of a Corporal from the 44th Regiment of Foot, circa 1755. I'm still working on painting reds. The most difficult part is getting the highlights just right. aside from trying to master acrylics I'm really working on getting the weapons and equipment just right. More 18th century stuff is on the way, in addition to a number of Gettysburg related subjects.

This looks really good. I really like the smoke! I have been having a lot of trouble creating realistic smoke in my own work. I'm looking forward to seeing more!

Gary,

Looking good! Your style would be perfect for a plate for Osprey or CMH.
