From KyleC - A Long Road (50 pts)
And just finished this Sunday night after a nice weekend of painting.
It's a bust coming from a buddy of mine and his new company Robotrocket Miniatures out of UK. I helped him with some of the advertising of his models, and how to run his books as well for some of his pieces. And he gave me this and his other model for free ( which is super cool also! ).
It is a dwarf that is travelling. So has a hotch podge of clothing ready to see the world on. But always has his trusty pipe nearby. Standing almost 50mm tall, it is a decent sized bust and was a lot of fun to paint over the weekend.
Oh, now ... this is very special. One of the things I love about the Challenge (besides staying up far too late, fumbling through flag application procedures, and making fun of Ray), is the chance for people to create something one-off and magical.
Something you'd never expect. Something which is surprising. And something which is ...'just right'. Like this dwarf adventurer.
He's wonderful, Kyle, and your rendering of him in paint is sublime. There's so much to enjoy, from his hotch-potch clothing, to the beautiful tartan, to his faded tattoos and the flesh tones of his face. He's a person who (despite being a dwarf) you can imagine sitting quietly in any tavern along the road to the next town or dungeon adventure. I imagine, he'll have some stories...
Really super work, Kyle. Scoring submissions like this is hard - mainly because it falls outside the normal scoring parameters. But I think off of us will agree this is a wonderful piece of painting - so, in my absolute discretion - I'm scoring this at 50 points. Well done, Sir!
