    Hey again folks,

    I'm calling this one done now, onwards and upwards :)

    It is a 54mm mini vignette from Beneito miniatures, painted in oils over acrylic undercoat. Many thanks to all who commented on the WiP thread, all comments were extremely helpful and I greatly appreciated them all :)

    Hello Billy: First off, I'll state the obvious — as the following is just
    my opinion, and that may not be worth much. But what I see here
    is really exciting. For one, I'm guessing that you're willing to take
    chances and create a piece of art that is out of the ordinary. Yes,
    the figure, alone, is what we see so often here on PF. But it is what you
    have done with the whole presentation that is so uplifting to me.
    I love the extra "eye candy" (i.e. wheel, boxes, and bags, et cetera)
    that supports the figure. And when an artist goes in this direction,
    the extra things added to the figure — terrain, hardware, etc. can
    take the viewers eye away from the figure. However, in my view,
    what you have presented here is just right. Yes, there is so much
    to look at and revel in for "Art's Sake" but the figure is still the
    dominant feature. I think that is not easy to do. I enjoy the extras,
    that show your talent, but the figure is still strong in the composition,
    and THAT causes me to smile. Because you are definitely an artist who
    gets it! Congrats. The Miami Jayhawk

    Thank you for your kind words Rick. I can't take credit for the composition and "eye candy" however as this piece comes as a complete kit so the credit should go to the skilled mind and hands of Jose Hidalgo. I merely stuck it all together and coloured it in ;)
