    Just finished boxart for Andy Cairns, ready for release this weekend in Brisbane at QMHE.

    Tried to get effect of young men lumbering down a slope in No Man's land on the peninsular.
    Ground & dust based on colour photos from location, bit bright in the photos unfortunately.

    What do you think?

    Andy´s work is really unique, his poses are very natural.
    Looks good Mike and the B&W photo is almost real.

    Great sculpt and paint. I like the little touches like the casualty's shorts pulling up above his puttees. Plus the proper sense of weight and balance can be seen.

    Hello Mike, You have really captured the mood with your excellent painting, of Andy's great looking piece. I think this is one of your best efforts. The weathering on the figures is very realistic, the black and white photo, looks like it came from a book on the subject. A very moving piece. Great work Mike. Congrats, and Regards, SG:)(y)(y)

    UK stockist? Great piece all round. My great uncle died of wounds in Gallipoli and was buried at sea. Very poignant.
