Fallen

Now that the 50th Painting Competition is over, I can publish the third part of my Minoan trilogy.
The figures are convertions of Cryns miniatures with Alex's heads. :-D

Awesome Minoan/mitological trilogy, Kostis (two of the works come directly from the Greek mitology: Theseus, Ariadne and the Minotaur, and Daedalus with Icarus flying to the sun). :love: :love: :love:

An unusual subject, but not so unusual results. Your projects are always masterpieces, very realistic, full of details and superbly executed. :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

My very best congratulations, expandable to your well deserved award of the silver brush in this year's painting competition. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Best regards.

Santi.

That’s a really lovely composition. It’s great how the one figure is given flight balanced on the other. Highly original!

Again a true masterpiece from your workbench! It is always great to see new topics that have never been done before, and this scene is certainly a novelty in our hobby.
And now the inevitable technical question: The water looks quite nice, which material(s) did you use?

I love the blending on the skin and the wings and of course, the resin water and waves are fantastic.

Nice job, my friend.
If you had taken Ikarus for another competition, you would have a good chance of winning.
What's next?
The adventures of Odysseus? ;-)

Icarus may be fallen but Daedalus still rises above the waves. Truly outstanding imagination and execution Kostis.

The ancients never knew that if you get to very high altitudes, it is actually cold! Beautiful work once again. The pathos plainly visible on the faces would be an astonishing accomplishment at any scale, but for 20mm it is damn near to miraculous.

Thank you for this information!
When I was working on my "Italy before the Romans" diorama three years ago, I came across this stuff while I was searching for resins to create a water surface. But I haven't used Gedeo Crystal Resin yet - looking at your beautiful results, I think I should give it a try.
