    The level of realism in your painting is amazing and leaves us mere mortals gasping for breath.
    As Neil said "brilliant"

    That is a lovely piece Mike. "Like" is a bit of an understatement in this case (y)

    The different textures at all perfect. My favourite bit is the enamelled tin mug, although it looks a bit clean (my exercise mug was almost black inside from tea staining ;))

    Thanks for sharing him with us muggins.

    Thanks Eludia, glad you like him.
    Had a few comments on that mug & it actually got washed out in larger photos.
    It has been bouncing around on Charlie's pack for a wee while too.

    Here's some "cleaner" shots of it - made from a Chapstick lid :)

    I don't know how you've done it but it looks like cloth and the webbing has texture. The only thing I can't see is the 'Lice'. ;) I bet he even smells sweaty. :whistle:
    Bloody fantastic paint work
