Some very nice pictures for a first contribution here - so welcome to the forum!

Your painting style is really good with lots of fine detail. In particular those faces are superb!

Hi! Welcome to the forum :-)
Your paintjob is excellent, but if you allow me, the background in your pictures doesn't show off your figures. I suggest that you use a sheet of paper (colored, textured, or plain white as you prefer) in order to get a better result, so that the eye focuses on the figure.

Here is an example with a dark grey sheet:

And this is the result:

Welcome and what beautiful work to exhibit.

Fantastic painting and the faces are alive.

My friend Mr Cryns suggested a black background to enhance the beauty of exhibit figure pictures.

He works in film and it works for me.

Best wishes,

Chris

Hello and welcome here at Bennos! You are a very skilled painter. As the others have said already: The figures look brilliant. Allow me to offer a tip for snowy bases: There is a product from AK which is really good to create snow. But also others offer good stuff, that is easy to handle an the effect is very realistic.
