Very nice job on this, Alexandru. Mountian men are one of my favorite subjects.

Great looking figure. I like how you treated the buckskin and the basework is terrific. Welcome to HF! GB

First of all, thank you all for your verry nice words. Second, pardon me for future errors in using the english language. It's harder in writing, but I see it as an exercise.

Your English is fine & your painting is even better. I'm working on this guy myself right now. I like the worn look around the edges of his buckskins but the groundwork is really outstanding. Mike

I do not know how much progress did you make, but I have some advices for you. Besides the major rework of the hat, I think you should replace/add some small details: barrel, powder horn strap, hat strap, plugs on rifle. I wish you success and good progress, Mike.

So much for my eyesight! I noticed the plugs on the rifle but sure missed the work on the hat & powder horn. You're right. I thought the powder strap & hat strap were a little weak but unfortunately, I have no sculpting skills to that extent. Your improvements were a big help to this figure. I'm almost through with my figure but haven't started on painting the base yet. I'll try to post a photo when he's all done. Mike

The hat looked very thick, so I had to thin it quite a lot. The straps aren't sculpted, they are made of rolled copper wire (with help from a drilling tool). Waiting for pics.
