    Couldn't agree more Keith I too prefer the realistic look to the porcelain figure. I am not taking anything away from the skills of the guys who do that style, I only wish I could paint even remotely close to that standard,it's just the "look" of the thing to me

    Saw this at Euro and Brian has done a wonderful job of the whole concept. Have not seen many camels as well painted as this, believe me its super. It was one of the highlights of the show for me, perhaps not a BOS but well up there in my mind.

    Hi Brian,
    From what I've seen from the photo's, your Lawrence of Arabia is a master class. I would have lost money on this, I personally thought this was a gold winner too. Anyway very well done and to go with your commended, I present you with the Order of the Chimp, our top (banana) award.
    cheers

    I've always found a problem with this reality versus artistic painting,especially when it comes to judging .I personnally prefer realism but i must admit there are some "artistic" painted figures that look very good and i admire the work that's went into them.Here's a scenario,2 identical commercial figures,one being perfectly painted to a realistic theme and the other perfectly painted to the artistic theme,which one gets the nod.If a judge selects one over the other then he's shown bias which in judging rules is a no-no.Probably the right thing to do would be to give them the same award.
    I've always had a problem with the over the top style figures which bear no resemblance to a real person,but i hesitate in showing any examples as i wouldn't want to offend anyone for their style ,although beautiful but unrealistic.
    Brian
