    Thank you gentlemen. It has been a very interesting project and one of my longest (eight months!!!). These are just pics off the workbench but when it is is finished I will shoot some better lit ones.

    As an aside, as I am a diorama miniaturist I picked up Doug Lee's new book and I highly recommend it. It is very informative, lot's of pictures, lots of SBS, lot's of tips and tricks. If you do vehicles, buildings, animals, people, groundwork like I do you will all find something of value in this book. I think Doug is very creative and talented and it is great to see him put his knowledge together in one volume.

    Looks great, Bob! You certainly have a knack for dynamic poses and for composition that shows interaction among the many figures. I'm looking forward to seeing this one in person when its done.

    Bob, well done. One of my favorite pieces from you. Great action, as we have come to expect and I have to say, by looking, you must have almost as much time in the ground work on this one as anything else! Good stuff!

    Jay, you are right, the ground work took a great deal of time (over a month). My favorite was making the Joshua Tree and I think it really helped set the locale.

    This was a complicated piece and it took a lot longer than I had anticipated. I actually stopped working on it for two months it was so intense. I worked on landscaping for my house in the interim. I think that is why I later spent so much time on the groundwork:) One hobby feeding another.

    Thanks for the compliments gentlemen. I hope to see some of you at Mastercon this weekend. It looks to be a fantastic show and I am so glad they moved it to Texas.

    Bob what can I say - it may have taken 8 months but hey LOOK at the result.

    Hello Bob!

    great job, but I didn't expect anythin less! :)
    It is full of action, has a great composition and the time you put into the groundwork is really well spent. The colouration looks beautiful also. I hope you'll take this one around the shows for some time, because I hope to see it in the flesh one day!
    Best wishes,

    Marijn,

    Thank you. To show that I am not idle, I just finished a small piece on Jackson Pollock the great, if not troubled, American artist who was such a seminal force in abstract expressionism.

    Hope you like it.

    Incidentally, the next piece I am going to do will also be on an American artist, Frederick Remington. I would like to do a series on some of my favorite American artists including some photographers and musicians.
