Hello again Jerry,

As already mentioned, I really like your figures and the painting.
Could you please tell me, which colors you have used in order to realize the pea pattern?
This looks extremely convincing. 
I am looking for correct colors already since a while.

Best regards

Thanks again buddy,
  I use the basic AK set for erbsenmuster. I darken and lighten the colors though sometimes. On this guy I lightened them to try to get a faded look. I always lighten the base color because it then adds contrast to the darker colors. If you are going to paint those million dots,you should at least be able to see them when you are done ! LoL

Hi Jerry,

Thanks for prompt reply.
Until now, I have avoided to to paint such a pattern, but your figure inspired me to give it a try. Probably the first attempt will end in a disaster, but let´s see...

I needed a guy in shirtsleeves and suspenders so here is how I do a quick fix for a needed guy in a scene. Get a fig that roughly fits the pose you need,in this case a Dragon guy from the Arnhem set.
