Challenge Day 40 - Cops WIP

I haven't done as much this evening as I'd hoped, largely because I managed to nod off for an hour or so after having my dinner. Oh well, at least I've got plenty of time tomorrow night to carry on with them.

I'm not entirely sure why, but the blue looks much brighter in the pics than it does in real life. The same thing looks to have happened with the pics of the vehicles - the blue on them is actually darker than in the pics.

I was thinking that I might have to do a wash with Prussian Blue then highlight, but I don't think I need to any more. That means I can do the flesh, hair, leather and metal bits tomorrow. It should be possible in one evening...

Oh, and that is a medium/heavy machine gun you see at the front. The Salutesville Police Department are more extreme than Sean Connery's character in The Untouchables:

"He pulls a knife, we set up a crew served machine gun; he puts one of ours in hospital, we put twenty or thirty in the morgue. That's the Salutesville way."


  1. Good progress and I guess you are still catching up from your missed sleep


  2. As long as the blue looks right to your eye in the flesh then I am sure it will be to my eye as well.

  3. I think blue is a colour that gets affected in the digital photo world. Great looking coppers. Cheers

  4. Malone: You, you carry a badge?
    Wallace: Yes?
    Malone: [gives him a shotgun] Carry a gun.

  5. Lovely job so far. I often wonder of that Mg but then in Young Guns they roll out a gatling gun so its fair do's really :D

  6. Funny. My cops look a brighter BLU in the photos too. Look forward to seeing these completed.

  7. @ Ian - I think that's probably the case.

    @ Clint - you can be sure it will, capische?

    @ Brendon - Cheers. That certainly seems to be the case.

    @ Michael A - thank you :)

    @ RMacedo - another great line from the film :)

    @ Adam - I am thinking about getting them some mobile firepower ;)

    @ Simon - the Salutesville PD just like big guns ;)

    @ Dave - it does seem to be a blue effect on the photography then. Should be finished tomorrow, but you'll have to wait until Saturday for the pics :)
