Oldsquaw and Bill

What do you guys think of these they are almost 100% done just a few things left. Mainly the oldsquaw do you like the paint on it? What needs to change?

The LT head looks good to me, the Scaup's bill doesn't seem big enough in proportion to the head, should be a little longer and wider in my opinion, but they look good regardless!

It may be the lighting, but the beige patch on the long-tail looks like it could be a smidge darker. Just for a little more contrast. Maybe another coat of the same color. But even without any changes it is 200 times better than I could do.

Thanks guys and yea I was thinking that the tan area on the oldsquaw might be alittle light, I was having a hard time trying to match it, I was looking as a bunch of different photos and reference stuff and just couldn't get 100% what I wanted. I will try darkening them up next week when I paint some more stuff, have a busy weekend lined up this weekend.

Brennan,
The heads look great :thumbsup: . I am looking forward to putting them to the ultimate test. Post some pics of the bodies when you get them completed.

Thanks,

Here is what the body is going to look like, we finished burlapping a couple today. That is our standard decoy next to it for comparison but it doesnt do it justice.
