Time to say "thank you" to all those who keep the forum running and who share their knowledge by giving useful advices and tips. As you can see on the pictures below, I have learned a lot about painting figures when I joined this place in 2011:

Wow! Great to see the progression! And nice to see the old ESCI-figures, but I suspect that you can have bought them as Italeri.

Being a complete novice it is cool to see your progression. I would consider me lucky if I evolve to just half that level.

Thank you! Just keep painting, watch the work of others and use it as an inspiration. And youtube tutorials are always a good idea!

Very, very nice.
I like very much your idea.

It does not only show the evolution of your skill to paint the figures.
Also the way from mass scenes to the focus for scenes with a few figures.
And on top to your own creation, idea of pose and modeling of figures.

Thank`s for sharing.

Your first works were very good, Ben90, but the last ones are simply superb, amazing and wonderful. I love specially the "Vercingetorix surrendering to Caesar" diorama. :notworthy:

Congratulations also for your 1000 posts. :thumbup:

Best regards.

Santi.

What an amazing progress. It's good to see these shots together, they show what's possible.

The Persian figures are terrific, I like all of the little details on their clothing. But your more recent work is just on a different level. Very fine highlighting on bronze and leather and fabric, and that monk is just incredible.

If you like these, you will certainly like the later ones I have made for a never completed diorama:
