    Hi Ivo,
    Your figure is an absolute masterpiece of work and is very close to the painting by Gericult.
    I think that the two really cannot be compared with each other though.
    I have always liked the Gericult painting from the first time I saw it in a book of Napoleonic Military Paintings. When I visited the
    Musée du Louvre, Paris I was so in awe of the painting it took my breath away. At thee and a half metres tall an two and a half metres width it is truely awesome.
    Whilst I have been greatly impressed by the great pieces that the Guys here sculpt and paint I have never had this emotion from looking at very good miniatures.
    Keep up your fine work and I hope that you can see my point as no detriment to your super work.
    Best wishes,
    Keith

    Right up there with the best interpretations of the Gericault painting. One of the best from your large cache of expertly finished figures.

    As inspiration, the Géricault painting can’t be bettered but I find Ivo’s interpretation of the action it portrays more credible from a 21st. Century point-of-view. In short, I think it’s bloody marvellous!

    Hi Ivo,
    I think that you have missed my point but never mind that save to say that it was in no way a comment on your work.
    I would be over the moon if I had reached your great level of artistry. For me you are a master at this 3D art and I have admired all of your pieces.

    Really not a problem my friend.
    I have lots of sets of glasses for different tasks and can never find the right ones for the job I am doing.
    I have to tell you that your English is very good and I admire the confidence that you have to post here in English.
    My Italian is only good for the Italian restaurants and bars:(.
    All the best wishes,
    Keith

    I completely agree. I love 54mm mounted Napoleonics, and I love to see you take the famous paintings and bring them to 3D. I am in awe of your great work, and look forward to every new venture you take. What's next?

    What else can I add? Another Ivo Preda masterpiece! Vous etes mon peinteur favorite dans tout le monde! I knew the painting represented Lieutenant Dieudonne but I had no idea that he and Gericault were friends.

    Hi friends
    Thanks for the kind words on my job. This project has been one of the most difficult ever done by me. It's a project that remained in my to do list for many years and, as frequently happen, I start and do it when I less thought to it.

    In any case I've done many mistakes or, better, many things can be done in a better and most efficient way
