    George,
    very interesting subject, and fantastic details. It may be just me, but his waist line looks like it could be just a couple mm too long, but a fantastic piece for sure!! You do very nice work!

    well it is not the waist that has a problem, it is just the way the belt was attaced on the figure. They were wareing the belt like that. very low on their waist and loose, as someone ccan see from miniatures of this period

    A very nice piece of work George...especially considering that you have used some very old and original reference..I think you've done a good job of interpreting the picture..I always find it fascinating how old original artworks for instance, are turned into figures or beautiful colour plates for us to work from.
    Did you have any more similar works of art to work from..? as it's a very interesting subject.

    All the best...Roy.

    Congratulations! The face is simply amazing, very expressive. I find this miniature very original, regarding to the reference and the way you treated it (specially the head and the crown). I love it
