    Well let this vigniette be a tribute to Carlos Hathcock (famous Nam Sniper Shooter) since many guys say that there is a great similiarity. I always had a great respect in high skilled shooters.

    My vigniette is nearly done like 90% -

    1) The figure is putted there as a fit test (need hands arrangement till final positioning and some detail work)

    2) Some 2-3 more animals are missing the scene , but theyre on the making and travelling

    3) Plantation and veggies are nearly finished, but need some final touches, like highlights and the rest .

    4) Statue needs some color smoothing

    5) The jars need some definition and detailing

    6) I need a label for this one also !!!!

    Kenneth hi and thanks my friend. I dont plan to use all birdies here, but in general i love animal touches with figures, and i d like to do it something like a trademark, including even a tiniest bit of animal life in my every figure or vigniette . I hope i ll find all interesting animals and different for the next 1000000000000000000000000 figures i plan to paint !!!!! LOL

    Costas, I have to chime right in and join everyone else in the praise for your groundwork. It REALLY sets the figure off well! Very nice job on the figure BTW. Were there any problems along the way? Iv'e been thinking about this figure every since I saw it at World Expo.

    Thanks,
