    Hello fellow Planet Figurerers,

    Here is my latest finished work. My first highlander and challenge on a tartan. My friend Costas Rodopoulos can confirm my fears before I started. But here it is. I hope you like it. An excellent figure sculpted by the one and only Master Maurizio Bruno.
    All comments and critics are welcome.

    You did a great job! I've just started this figure and am as nervous of tartan now as you probably were. I can't even get his knees right! I am afraid that my fears will be very well proven out, unlike yours.

    Thanks a lot for your kind comments.
    Paul, don't be afraid of the tartan. They were telling me they are easier than they look and they were right.

    Marc my friend, if you don't try, you won't learn :)

    Keith Thanks a lot buddy. The article that you gave me was really a huge help.

    Beautiful work. You're a very patient, as well as talented, man. I'm currently trying to paint the same tartan on a different figure & I'm about to restart the kilt for the 3rd time :angry:. In honor of the new baseball season here in the US, I'm seriously thinking about seeing how far I can swat the #$%@#& thing with a baseball bat :) .

    Hi Xenofon,
    good painting.
    The only thing. I would have made the base smaller.
    Cheers,

    Thanks a lot Maurizio, to be honest I thought this thing about the base, but it was a bit late when I got the idea... Thanks for the tip anyway.
