    Beautifully painted. And beautifully sculpted by Larucia. Based on photos I have seen the only weakness in this sculpture seems to be the top of his head....it doesn't seem to me that Adriano built the head up enough above the eyes, making the eyes look like they are set too high. Perhaps its just the photo angles I have seen though. Again great job on the figure.

    I didn't think it was possible, but I think your flesh is getting more and more realistic. Man this is a treat for the eyes. Most excellent work!

    The machine is working again. Excellent work Jimmy your high painting technique getting better and better figure by figure, it seams that you have no limits. I also see that you have spend time for the base, this is good.
    The heraldry is amazing, it looks like a stamp, the hawk rocks and with this blue you prove that you can paint difficult colors like you paint red.
    I am looking forward for the Saturday to come so I can see live that beauty.
    Congrats comrade.

    Hi Dimitrios !

    Very god job ,Really.
    If there is something i can critics to improve the overall look of your piece.
    The Heraldry is very well made the details is good, but what i see on the picture is plain white,no shade no lights. Detailing a figure is as important as painting fleshtones or painting a horse , all the details have to receive the same amount of shade and light to improve the overall look.

    Hope you understand what i want to explain.

    Thank you very much.

    Have a nice day.

    Gordy, Christo, Marc, Ken i m really glad you like it and appreciate the comments.
    Claude i totally agree with you on the amount of detail every part should get on a figure, but if you look carefully you will notice that the heraldy is actually painted on a flat surface of cloth because underneath there should be the breastplate. So there are no shadows to tone. Still there are some shadows on the lower part where there are some wrinkles on the tunic. Thank you for your comments nonetheless.

    I totally agree with Chris every figure painters is definitely better than the other, and certainly many hours of work on each miniature to do better and that ultimately is what matters to become better in every job we seek to perfect as you.
