Here are some pictures of my last paintjob done some time ago for Blacksmith Miniatures. I have painted this figure for the Kickstarter campaign "The World of Jean-Baptiste Monge" and i'm very happy to paint this incredible bulldog and his pixie friend sculpted by Valentin Zak. This miniatures was a great fun to paint during all the process...you rock Valentin! ;)

Cheers and happy christmas!

  • Riccardo "RA" Agostini

    Love this palette, reminds me about Dickens!

  • Valentin Zak

    C’est parfait, exactement comme je l’imaginais lors de la sculpture, top.
    L’ambiance qui se dégage du duo est vraiment chouette, les teintes s’accordent parfaitement, ça ressemble à une illustration.
    Merci Matthieu!

      Encore merci d’avoir produit cette formidable pièce…très content que la peinture te plaise! Pour moi si le sculpteur reconnait son taf et qu’il apprécie la peinture…il y a quelque chose de réussi! Merci Valentin et au plaisir de se recroiser! ;)

    Just a big thank you to everyone who voted ... it’s a lot! I am very happy that you like this painting in which I put a lot of fun and pleasure. I do not know if the painting deserves as much but the sculpture of Valentin is beautiful and does a lot for the final result. I hope many different versions in the coming months and why not make another version for me ... I already have some ideas! Have fun and cheers!  :)

  • Nicolas "Gros Peintre" Réant

    Je me rends compte que j’avais même pas voté, honte a moi ! Superbe taf, probablement la peinture la plus marquante de l’année 2017. Vivement la prochaine !
    Mais je suis pas si pressé. Il y a déjà beaucoup à apprendre rien qu’ en regardant cette magnifique pièce.

  • Serge

    une superbe harmonie des couleurs alliée à un souci du détail…. Bref or, selon la formule consacrée.
