    OK folks, this had to be the most fun I've had painting in some time........possibly ever! This is the Hellboy (Little Boy) bust from Figurallia Miniatures. I have actually finished up two pieces lately, and I got this one done in record time after a box art piece I had to do. I couldn't pull myself away from this one. I think I was able to knock this one out in about a week. That's VERY fast for me. I just got sucked in! A great sculpt, in the spirit of Mike Mignola's style (the creator of Hellboy). With that in mind, I treid to make the palette of colors in keeping with the muted tones of a Mignola comic. I had to give him my own touch, I added the cigar, removed the original "stone" look base and added some scaring to his horn stubs. Loved doing the red skin tones on this fellow! Great piece and MUCHO FUN! Thanks Luca! Hope you guys like him, any and all comments more than welcome! Thanks for looking!

    Many thanks Costas and Martin!

    Costas, I really like the idea of something different now and then! Lets me experiment a bit and work something that has no rules! I just have to add my own touch Martin, thanks for noticing!
