Hi all,my last figure painted.
Some have already seen it on fb but I always like to put my work here even if they are not true to scale.
In memoriam of Kostis...

That, for me, is the pinnacle of figure painting. You have turned plastic into broadcloth. :thumbup:

Fantastic paintjob, tocayo. Like Chris, I really like the dirt on the cloak. :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

Simpy wonderful!
My wife often asks why I don't paint larger figures than 1/72-scale.
I tell her then you need to be a real painting artist to make something beautiful of it.
These pictures are the proof of a real artist.
thank you for sharing,

A very beautiful sculpt and extremely well painted Santi. Well done indeed. I’d say the dedication to our friend Kostis is also extremely befitting! It’s a simple figure but it truly tells a story for which Kostis was a true master.
Like Chris, yours truly loves seeing figures in dusty, dirty uniform as opposed to the brand new parade ground look.
