Nice horse. All very three dimensioned. Regular figs are so two dimensioned, one can really appreciate the perspective made so apparent by the detail of the figures.

Dear dutchboyinohio, my system to paint is a old system, I learn this whit a books of Bill Horan and Shepperd Paine, whit a little different:
I use Acrilic colors for base color and after I paint all whit OIL colors. For a matt result I put the color oil on the paper, wait, like this the oil is absorbed and to dilute I use "petrol essence".
Thank for all regards

A great dio and a pretty faithful rendition of the original illustration. Like almost everyone else I really love the horse, not just the painting but also all the trappings.

If I may be allowed some (hopefully constructive!) criticisms of the British officer: his face is too dark. They tended to keep out of the sun in case anyone mistook them for a Eurasian. Also the picture obviously shows the officer as being young with a blonde moustache whereas your rendition makes him look like a older man with a grey moustache. These are of course nit-pickings and should not detract from what is a great dio :thumbup:

;-) Thank for your regards, but on life the model is very good, you have reason the photos is a little dark, sorry.

A brilliant little vignette, with an original choice of subject :thumbup:

Slatin was 39 at the time of the incident depicted, and had spent ten years in Mahdist captivity, so I doubt that he would have looked like a youngster...
According to the caption in the Osprey Omdurman book, after the Battle of Firket he found the body of Amir Hammuda, one of the Mahdist commanders, and an old friend of his.
