    Comparing the size with EuroMilitaire 2011 Gold medal masterpiece, "Pirate of Madagascar", of course you all may know, painted by well-known painting machine, Dimitrios Kotronias.
    I was strongly inspired by this Dimitrios' work and I think he needs buddy pirate so I started painting this. :)

    Thanks a lot for your nice comments, Oleg, Meizi, Carl B, Dimitrios, Alex, Eduardo, Philippe, Ronald, Carl S, Marc, Gary, and IronMike!

    You're welcome! thanks a million my friend.

    thanks Dimitrios work is too great and almost impossible for me to catch up with. I will to bring it to as much closer level as possible.
    Yes I experiment...all the time! :)

    I'm glad to have such a nice comment from who sculpted this wonderful bust. I was watching this bust from the pre-production status on your blog and really love this. It has strong character.

    Now I'm wondering about colorings such as whether I paint the head skarf red with white dots or simple red...dark blue jacket or black jacket...black hat or dark brown hat...these kind of things.

    Stay tuned...patiently. :)

    Thank you very much for your comments william, Spyros, David, Andrew, and Rob!

    Yes you're right. Mine is released from Michael Roberts Ltd, sculpted by Gary Dombrowski. I think the one from Warriors you finished and I found the info that is sculpted by John Rosengrant. I think the reason why they look similar is because they are both inspired by the same Pyle's picture. Big difference between them is scale, Warriors version is 1/9(200mm) and MichaelRoberts Ltd version is 150mm(almost 1/12).

    Okay, here's the progress. Almost finishing but I think I need some fixes a little bit more. Please feel free to let me what you think, your suggestion, critiques or anything. I want to hear your opinions or requests to make it better.
