    Good to see you picked up the texture from the photo Ben. Tried hard to get that sense of heavy woollen surface on tunic. Sorry haven't added a bolt, there is a small stack of sticks on the ground as they are supposed to be in a small orchard. Are you going to Brisbane show?

    Thanks for your comments.

    A masterful rendition Mike. Very beautiful and poignant scene of a father and his son.

    Hi Mike, fantastic work mate, I would also like to see it with a neutral background as I feel the current background detracts from some seriously f#!*^# great work!

    Excellent painting Mike,love the texture on the clothing and also the apple !!!! Very well thought out.
    I have one of these figure sets on my for sale list,the guy who wants it sold asks 40 euros,saying that he paid 45 euros at the World Expo for this" limited edition" although it is still available.I offered it to a Planet Figure member who pointed out that 40 euros is more than the price on the world expo website......Wierd !!!!! Wouldnt this make you mad ???
    Regards

    Hi Mike, would love to get back to the Queensland show but cant this year, there is a lot of interest there from the figure guys so I think it will be a good show. I am trying desperatly to get something done for the West Australia show that is held 1x week after Queensland. Have a great time there and say hi to everyone for me

    Good to hear from you Les & you'll have a chance to see what you think without my 'brainscan' backing in a couple of months all going to plan :) Man I liked that look of that swirling background, too, used it before & no one said anything but seems I got it wrong :) will have to try again.

    Thanks for the honest feedback mate!

    Stay safe,

    Mike
