    Nice effort Christos, but i think the contrast on the cheekbones is to strong.

    Christos, your work is fantastic, but we cannot see it in details since the red backround is too hard. I suppose that it would be better with new shoots in black backround.

    Beautiful paintjob my friend, and clean neat style but your tones mix badly with the red background and we miss the reality of your final result . PLease reshoot and repost !

    Nicely done. I agree about the background, also if you can crop the images, it will allow us to focus on this nice piece even more. Well done! For me, the cheeks are just fine. I notice you didn't use the suplied plinth. Why not? Thanks for sharing!

    There it is then Christos. Excellent painting on all aspects. Sometime you gotta tell me the recipie for those golden decoration on the clothes. I agree that the red backround messes with the reds on the figurer. A cooler and darker one whould suit it better. But i suppose you will visit the meeting point this saturday...

    Hi Christos,
    You do a great deal of good, fresh paint, but as in every job he is dark, ok!, But this does not spoil the rest of the effect is awesome.
    Bravo!!!

    Thank you all my friends for your warm feedbacks, I 'll try to find a new background but I can't promise anything, I am a modeller not a photographer:D,
    Jay "supplied plinth" you mean the carbine at his back? If yes there is no special reason, Dimitrios you will see it live this Saturday and you will see the difference between photo and reality,
    the golden embroidery is a combination of yellow,beige brown,burnt umber,brass and old gold Valleho acrylics and off white at the last highlights.
