    I was very pleased to find out recently that pretty much all of the old Phoenix range is now in production again.:D I've been missing them and I'm looking forward to painting more of these! Miss Cupid here was done up in cheap craft acrylics from Michaels. Not completely satisfied here, but I still like her.

    For some reason reminds me of old tobacco ads, those metal signs from the 20s...
    If you could permit me a comment
    I think it could use some shading and a more distinct light source.
    I like the figure very much! Please keep it up!

    Re the figure sculpting, itself: I feel the sculptor did a fine job with the pose
    and the proportions. I don't thing this would be easy; especially with a
    figure that has hardly any clothing to cover up anatomical errors
    in the sculpting.

    And I like your colour choices. It is hard, to an old Grand Slam Tennis
    fan to NOT like the Wimbledon colours. Green and Violet. Well done.

    Thanks for sharing James, I hear several folks get good use out of the Michael/Crafts etc acrylics. (y)

    Nice job, but have to wonder how she would run around the forest in high heels;)

    I like her so far but agree with Aaron that a little shading could really make her a standout.

    I know they are what I use when painting with acrylics.;)

    Thanks for all of the comments! I know I need to work on my shading, it's more difficult for me than you might think though:confused: Especially on these girl kits, I'm really hesitant to put too many shadows on them and make them look old.

    @ Nick:

    I just read on PF the other day that this place in the UK is now producing the Phoenix 54 mm lines: http://www.forty-third.co.uk/32_phoenix_home.htm

    Metal Modeles from France produces the Phoenix 80 mm ranges: http://www.metal-modeles.com/

    And even the Mascot stuff is being produced. I forget who's doing it, it's a German company. I'll have to look at my bookmarks when I get home. Berliner Zinnfiguren sells them and the 80 mm Phoenix ranges though: http://www.zinnfigur.com/all/E_Home_Set.asp?sprache=EN

    Nicely done, but I would echo the comments about some more shading. She seems a bit pale for what looks like an outdoors(y) type. Maybe she doesn't tan?

    Bring it to the meeting this weekend if you can make it!

    Cheers,

    She's related to pixies and lives in the woods, that's why she's pale!:p

    I hope to come to the meeting TW, depends how tired I am...
