    Hello Guys,

    I finished this last week this extremely well sculpted figure from Alexander Miniatures.
    The boxart was painted by Jaume Ortiz who did some great work on it.
    I hope you give me some positive comments so i can improve my painting work.
    The figure is painted as usual with oils with acrylic underlayer. The metals are also oils, with highlight's in printersink.
    I kept the base simple. I find that this figure needs all the attention for itself, and some scene's where played on the beach.
    I didn't made the cloak dirty, because i find that it pushed the figure no more to reality.
    Marc

    Hi Marc,
    The reds are perfect. Beautiful work on the metal, perhaps a little more sand on the base will be better (for me).

    Gotta agree with Seb there Marc splendid work on the reds. I'm hard pressed to give any constructive criticism, perhaps a little more highlight on the bronze that's all.

    Roger,
    Thanks my friend. But i got to say the bronze is at the highlight almost silver.
    I don't know how i can push them up.
    So, every advice is welcome.

    As I said Marc I was hard pushed to give a comment that I thought might help so feel free to disregard it. I'm also sure the highlight is more evident on the actual figure rather than the photo.

    Hi Marc,

    The red cape is excellent I like it very much :)))

    Don't know if the this is in the pics but I can see that the lance isn't perfectly straight. Am i wrong??

    Soory if I pointed this out but I it's something in me that I tell someone if he has something wrong :))

    Marc,
    The highlight of this figure, for me, is the rear view of the red cloak. Nice work!

    Marc,
    Just a super cape and nice shading. I agree with Sam, The lance looks a little bent from the hand down maybe? Nice simple base with some interest in it.
    Cheers

    Marc,
    Nicely painted figure. Love the reds in the cape and the metals :)
    I would fix the spear though. That little detail does distract from the overall look of the figure :(
    Cheers,
    A.
