Completed Critique Blackfoot Warrior - 1830

    I started this figure about 2 years ago and kept putting him aside, picking him up again and doing some more work on him and then putting him aside. It got so bad I lost the left arm and shield and after going through my studio over and over had to order another kit to replace the parts. That hurt, as I have never lost parts before. But finally this morning I did the small amount of grass to the groundwork and declared him finished. Part of the reason I took 2 years to finish him was the necklace. Not an easy item to paint and have it look right.

    Great masterpiece Guy.
    Indeed the combination of the figure and the ground work is wonderful.
    I felt the atmosphere such as the man who loves nature.
    I congratulate completion.

    Guy, That is one mean looking Blackfoot warrior. Like the way you staged it! Overall results I would say, Excellent! I really like it. Reminds me of a Frank McCarthy illustration.

    Happy Trails, Terry Martin

    John - I guess we are our own worst critics......I see lots of mistakes since I placed it in the showcase.
