Great, Great, Great... What Scale is that...??...

HOT Runner for the Sword, very Difficult to Judge on which Entry was better... LOVE it... Very Condensed, Great Ambience and Feeling... More then Well done... Masterful... :cool:...

Only thing that strikes me is that the Grey Stones could use some additional Colours and / or Tiny Details... Rest is Spectacular...

Do you have this Piece in your Book, too...?...

just pure awesomeness! must be a very close cut for the sword!

the painting very clear and smoth, looks almost like the historicalstuff you can see on events like the duke of bavaria.

the only thing i miss on this epic piece is the grit and dirt of the battlefield. for a last stand, these guys look to fresh. clean clothes, no bruises, no blood.

maybe a bit dirt here and there, wheatering on the cloth, some blood on the dead or wounded might have brought you a nice little pointy blade.

anyway, just great, hope to see it in reallife someday.

well thank you all, is always a pleasure to share with your community a work, because of your participation very kind and also because you do always interesting comments and feedback

for the question of dirt... yes you may be absolutely right, but there are a reason because a i choose to not put a lot of dirt.

is because no body to body fight have been doing here, this is "long distance attack, is like some terrible enemy attach the bastion of the castle and the soldiers go to the broken part for make some last stand, but a great swarm of arrow arrive and kill them all. if you look no soldiers have blade weapon, only guns, also the campion shouted with arrow in the neck try to brig his guns, not a sword for example.

about blood... yes interesting in effect! also because i think you know i am an habitual gory painters (i make a lot of blood effect in my miniatures) but we talk a lot with Numi about how much blood i have to put and in effect i study that arrows shot don't create some squirrel blood effect because is very direct and quick, and just a little quantity of blood exit from the "hurt parts" before you pull off the arrow from it.

i hope is understandable ahaha my english is very poor!

anyway, thank you for this comments very interesting to answer to your "discussion idea"!!

for matt: thank you my friend! i can't wait the time to laugh with you again in italy on Monte!!
about the base, yes could be more contrasted, i try to do this but the very dark intensity of the figure with a more bright base became "more hidden", the base "destroy" the atmosphere... so for that i return with a lot of washes to a very dark base.

also for you, very interesting point of discussion!
is always a pleasure!

ave to all and thank you!

By the way, this reminds me on a diorama with fighting knights at rhodes fighting against osmans

Hi,


you combine the quality of one of the best sculptors with one of the best painters in the world. The result is beyond anything I have seen before. I love your clear style of painting, you reduce it to the minimum, no fancy extras, no use of whatsoever new medium or stuff. That is what I admire most, the pure Jedi-power of you painting-skills. A lot to learn from you we have....^^
I hope to see this in real life at the Duke of Bavaria, and I hope this time you will bring it on your own. :)


Cu, :D

Thanks for explaining! Its one thing to look at a model and make up your own mind and then talk to person how did it and learn his intention behind the scene.
And now i see the whole scene with new eyes.

Thanks again. Hope to see it at the Duke next year.
