Enjoy the pictures!

  1. Slow?! I would gladly give a left arm (someone else's left arm, preferably a "terrible person") to paint at half your speed.

  2. These are great. I keep being impressed by Zvezda's stuff, and you've done the figures justice.

  11. Beautiful painting !
    flesh colour is perfect!

    (Paul don't understand that there are 2 kinds of painters: the quick painters and the slow painters! There's no place for lazy painters, it's impossible!)

  14. These are really neat pieces and you've done a marvelous job of painting them. You've got those subtle changes in skin tone just right and the faces are perfect. There's no one in the world slower than me. One day I'll admit to just how long it takes me to do one piece.

    1. Thanks Anne! The skin tones are the dark flesh with the black wash (2X). You're maybe slow, but the figures you show to us are awesome!
