    Greetings all,

    Just finished this one, my second bust - FeR's 1/16 "Norse Prince" in the usual oils over acrylics:

    A fun project to play around on - and yes, it's a Fantasy - genre figure given the comic-opera horns on his helmet. I'm still a little sedate on my "fantasy pallette" colours though, I think. The "Montreal crew" who came to the Sword and Brush Show in Toronto really opened my eyes to what's possible, given enough guts to push things further - merci mes amis for the inspirational work you brought!

    Regardless, thanks for looking.

    Enjoy Euro, folks - I'll get there some year (c'mon retirement!)

    Thanks for the kind comment, Oda - much appreciated. The sculpt already has that really craggy time-worn look; all I did was add the paint ;)

    Thanks again,
