2 new pics -  with more light and shadow -    I have some more Mahdists to paint and will try to give them more contrast from the beginning

Yes, Michel you are perfectly right: these white spots render the figures with dark skin-color much better/much more vivid outlooks.
I myself shall also note this technique for later!

yes, indeed, perhaps you can add white spots on the skin of the black persons and grey shadows on their clothing, and also very white spots on the top left sides of the hats and clothes, see below

Nice painting.
Interesting to see the contrast of the dark skin and the white clothing.

I found some bits and pieces which might be helpful for painting your figures.

Thank you both!   It was a fine drawing from Mike Michaelis and a fine engraving from Bernd Graf.

Yes, the expression is a hit - real rebellious one!
I also like the other colours/shadings of the figure as well!
