What I would do is give it a thin black/brown "dark wash" to settle into wood grain, then dry/brush lightening layers of brown till you get it where you like it;)

My thoughts?
Very nicely posed. Perhaps a collar and lead?

Also, how about a touch of darkish pink to the dog's mouth and tongue too?

Looking good, Stuart....... :smiling3:

Hi Ron thank you for your kind feedback and advice.
The figure is not the one that goes with the dog just put as a pose.
The correct one dose come with a lead I think not sure as I did this dog first from diff kit.
Defo add one if not and the touch of pink

Glad to help.

I think the figure looks really nice looking down at the dog. It gives just that little bit of 'humanity' in what is an awful place.
