That's fantastic! The quality of the painting plus the extreme realism of the landscape: One of the best winter scenes that I have ever seen, perhaps even THE best one.

Dear King Luis,

:notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

You are a true master of modeling and dioramabuilding.
I love all of it.

The painting of your figures is superb, as is your choice of colors, your realistic historical color tones. Superb is the use of snow containing brown tones, long dry grass and your home build trees covered in snow. Superb is the composition, part of the men and woman carrying on, part of them giving resistance to the Cossacks.

But you are a master of photography too. I can remember no other member using SO MUCH DEPTH IN MACRO-FOCUS SHARPNESS, the first thing that goes wrong with many other modelers when they try to picture their models. You also managed very well to focus on the faces of the important figures in a specific image. So you have main characters in every new picture. Well done, well done.

It looks like you directed some colored light towards the center of your diorama: was it yellow light that was color-corrected towards sepia brown in your computer, or is it a sepia brown filter you used?

Your choice and use of a painted background is superb too. I am curious if you painted that background yourself, or if you used a vintage one you had in mind BEFORE you made the diorama base itself: it fits too well together to be co-incidential.

The only improvement you can achieve is the least important factor: the presentation of your pictures.
It is not clear what is a WIP and what is finished.
Why not organize them into two or more sections?
And please next time double check your uploaded pictures to see if all of them are visible. During copy-pasting you deleted a lot of ]]]]]]]'s so those pictures don't pop up. Just like a double entry WIP picture: why rush and hurry in the end when all other factors are so impressive?
(thank you Dad for fixing it while I am writing)

My deepest respect to your work Luis.

I must confess to a little confusion as I was expecting Gerrys finished project from the title.

Scrolling through you lovely pictures I realised that this is a Luis project only when I got to the comments.

Once again your painting and composition are in my opinion excellent. The cold emanates from the model, conjuring up the horror of that terrible retreat.

Very well done indeed.

Best wishes,

Chris
