Thank you Andrii
Très joli Bran !
Merci beaucoup Alex ;-)
Encore une pièce joliment peinture, Bruno, avec un décor qui la met vraiment bien en valeur.
Par contre, j’adhère moins au côté roux flashy de la chevelure et de la barbe, qui focalise trop l’attention au détriment du reste.
Bon, je te donne de l’or quand même, elle le mérite !
Merci Eric. J’ai voulu attirer le regard vers le visage du personnage, c’est pourquoi j’ai volontairement saturé la chevelure et la barbe…. ;)
Great work Bran! Gold!
Thank you very much Andrey !!
Very well painted, and an good presentation aswell
Thank you so much Roy, I’m glad you like it ;)
Une superbe mise en scène Bran!
bonne idée de mise en scène.
tu aurais pu apporter plus de subtilité dans la chevelure qui est , même si c’est volontaire , un peu flash, et du coup attire de trop le regard.
Évite aussi si possible les socles totalement plats, car tu perds en profondeur.
cela reste une belle réalisation !
Merci pour tes conseils Marc, j’en prends bonne note :)
Great work friend!
Muchas gracias Ivan, me alegra mucho que te guste :)
Thank you so much yjxbyby
Bruno, my dear friend - I’m a bit late with my reaction - but I already told you, in private, that you yet created/painted another masterpiece! I also enjoyed reading the story about ‘Halvard the keeper’; giving this little scene more ‘depth’. GOLD! :)
A very big thank you my friend, always happy to share with you .....
Hey Bruno, according to your facebook message I am always willing to give feedback. You asked me why I voted silver on this cool project of yours. First of all, silver is a very high vote. Only topped by gold. I barely vote gold and do vote a lot of silver for good and beautiful work. If I would vote gold on everything that is good and beautiful gold would lose its meaning on this page. So, silver is a high vote from side.
Feedback as you asked me what I see. Overall this is a beautiful base and presenting the miniature really well. The light situation on the figure is really well done too. There are small things I see and this is no offense it is just my personal perspective on where I could see improvement:
- The skintone would live up with more color variations in the face and the hands
- The metal parts could reflect the sorrounding environment as it is a reflective material when it is polished and that round thing in his chest looks really polished
- The leather parts could live up with more variety in brown tonalities
- the grass on the base looks like mininature grass with a little pigment, could look more natural if for example a wash makes the lower part darker and the upper parts brighter
- The shield has a feeling to fall from the base, composition-wise
- I miss a photo of the back of the project
I hope my feedback finds you in peace and with no offense taken. Like I said this project has a lot of strong points this is why I voted silver on it. If you have any questions left to my personal perspective on your figure, please feel free to ask me anytime :)
Thank you Roman for commenting on this project, I understand your point of view and share it almost entirely.
I think that metals that reflect the environment has become today a must ... It is understandable because used by good painters and it’s a shame because it “forces” to follow a way of doing .... I do not think that in a photograph of a person in armor, we really see the environment reflected .... A shiny metal can just reflect light without allowing to see the color of the landscape ...
I think that we shouldn’t ask everyone to work in the same way and produce the same effects, it’s just a point of view. ;-)
My pleasure and I am happy that you do not take my feedback badly. I would not say reflecting metals is a must in painting miniatures. Really I do not want to force such thoughts on anyone. Of coure shiny metals can just be painted shiny. On the contrary in miniature painting, especially in historical miniature painting we all always strive for painting realism and shiny metal in real reflects the environment, especially when you put your miniature to a base ... from the natural aspect and realism I mean - it reflects the sorrounding environment and even the sky color ...
... but maybe it is just a different perspective that we both do not share when it comes to miniature painting and everyone should paints as he wants of course. When asked for feedback I just can give it to you from my perspective :)
