    Excellent work so far. The only thing why i didn't buy the figure is the blue and white striping on the short.

    Good to have you back posting Dimitrios; I missed your painting!
    Your Atilla is put on ice for the moment I understand...?

    Anyway, this looks like a very good start to me; I'll be following....

    Looking great so far Jimia, dark blue one of the most difficult colors to paint is excellent. Wait for your progress.

    Thank you all for your feedback and support. Marc i agree with you that this is quite a demanding figure. Adrian returning from Euro i have like 10 new figures waiting on line so it is a bit hard to return to older things as you can imagine! Chris i m glad you like the blue. Tried some of your suggestions and i think it is better than the previous one.

    Hi Dimitrios,

    I like the contrast on the face between the dark leathery skin colour and the white hair and beard. I presume you haven't painted the hair and beard yet, but have you considered colouring the hair grey to make him an older man?

    Excellent start!
    The tone is very vivid and beautiful.
    An impression of the fresh tone is very wonderful.
    I'm looking forward to completion of your work very much.
    I'm convinced that it'll be a wonderful work.

    Cheers.
