    Sorry Tony no reveal until WorldExpo.
    Gotta take final photos this weekend with both hat options.
    So hoping your patience will be rewarded.

    It fun to capture personality in your painting though.
    Must say a lot of what Alfonso "Banshee" Gilrades talks about in his interview resonates with me on "evolution" of painting from Masters to our own attempts with miniatures nowadays.

    Finished!
    Clearer, lighter shot of his face.
    Hopefully this provides a sense of detail I've tried to capture as part of this telling this young man's story.

    The "teaser" photos are amazing and reveal pure talent. You are undoubtedly one of the best if not the best painter out there. I am looking to seeing this one "in the flesh" at EXPO.

    Tx! Michael all going well trust he will meet your expectations when you actually see him. Note he's considerably smaller @1/9th scale than this shot, this sort of high res photo can sometimes emphasize detail that is just not visible without magnifying lens & good light source. For myself i cannot see much of this detail until I take photos.
    Hope that makes sense.

    Look forward to your feedback.

    Ridiculously real and difficult to imagine that its not larger!! And you must paint by intuition, if you wait for the photos to see what if looks like?! All baffling for me!
