    Hi guys and gals.

    After a month of painting i managed to finish this one,that has been primed and waiting for more almosts 6 months maybe, until i felt ready to give it some paint.

    This was the initial plan as was posted here on March

    Primed figure and base

    As usual i worked with Valejo Acrylics, and few oils and printers inks.

    I just hope you like it , as i have counted for the total of it more than 100 of painting and working hours - both for the figure and the base - believe it or not !

    The figure had a lot of fitting problems and had given me almost a week of resculpting parts and correcting details and bad casting points.

    But this was definatelly a painting lesson and i just wish you likethe result.

    I also would like to thank my friend John Pradarelli fro sculpting me one of the 2 Green Dragons of War (lizards that is ). The other was sculpted from me .

    The small tree is made custom from different natural parts of plants

    I just hope you like it.

    Good morning my friend Costas. Knowing the effort that you put on this piece my congratulations for the finished piece are just too little. Unfortunatelly the pictures are not your sharpest, but having seen some better ones of this piece, I can say that you amazed me, once again. :)

    Hi Costas
    A beautiful piece of work my friend You have brought a colourful period in history to life One can almost feel the silk in the cloth!
    If you had so much trouble with the fitting of the kit, do you think that you probably had a bad casting? or has anyboby else had the same problems?
    Still you have certainly overcome the problems and produced a real gem, Well done
    Cheers

    Dear guys thanks a lot for your commenting .

    @MAB As you see my friend i am trying to improve . You will see it at Saint Vincent

    @Wojciech dear friend thanks. Detail painting is a sectionthat i try hard to improve as i believe its crucialfor a good painted figure

    @John All the friends i had asked when i got the piece told me the exact same problems, so i guess it was overall production problm.It just took me more time to prepare . annd added me some sculpting experience

    this guy turned out very nicely. I really like the colorfulness of the clothing. Your groundwork gives a great Asian feel as well. Well done!
