Here is my latest commission work. It is the 1/12th scale Waffen SS Grenadier from the now defunct PJ Designs. This is the 3rd time I've tackled this figure and he just never gets old. He's holding a G43 and as far as I'm concerned I think his body language is the best I've ever seen as far as realism in a sculpt. His equipment, proportions and facial details are as well first rate. He as always in done in Vallejo Acrylics with citadel paints for the metallics.

.... the pose looks akward to me, this angle of tilt for the neck and head with a heavy steel helmet?

And the right hand, such looooooooong fingers! Bizarre...

Top notch painting though but those things bug me.

Cheers,

Christophe

Dan,
As always, your work is impeccable. I've seen that pose lots of times, when I was in high school! For whatever reason the kids I went to school with struck that pose as a mild form of defiance, usually while rolling their eyes.
Regards,
Georg

superb but I have to agree with the post about the hand being kind of freekishly huge. I have no problem with the tilt of the head though as I had the same tilt many times in the Army while thinking"What the F"?
And you know what they say about big hands.....big gloves!!

As usual, Dan's painting is just incredible, inspirational and lifelike, but the huge right hand is just not right - That index finger is twice the width of the gun barrel and the hand is way longer than the face. That hand would be too big for even a 1/12 Shaquille O'Neal

Dan, your art is just incredible. I have never seen anything like it. I downloaded your post to study it...there is so much experience begging to be learned from.

best regards,

william.. the guy who just finished his first figure..
