I wanted to try something different with this one. Something that would be more relaxed and expressive. So I mixed some skin tones for light and cold shadows and started painting away.

I was really inspired by the work of Alfonso Giraldes in the Miniature Art Academy and his #fucksmoothness philosophy. It has helped me to find a way to enjoy painting no matter what technique you use. This piece was all about that for me.

This one has a total of about 4 hours of work which I did in 3 different days, but 80% was done in the first 2 hours the first day and it was too much fun.

I don't think this style is suited for every miniature, but I'll definitely do it again in the future.

As all my latest figures this was also painted with oils.

I look forward to reading your thoughts on this one!

      Muchas gracias, Luis! Sí, en tanta mezcla de colores hay partes que parecen quemadas y algo agregan a los tonos. Me alegra que te guste!

      Thanks! Yes, the whole point of the exercise was to enjoy it as much as possible and paint it without much planning or boundaries. Glad you liked it!

    Für mich ist das ein gelungenes Kunstwerk und ich finde es wichtig
      sich auf verschiedenen Wegen auszuprobieren .
    Es gehört auch Mut dazu , über unseren Tellerrand hinaus zu schauen
    sonst haben wir keine Chance auf Entwicklung -
      Die Geschwindigkeit der Zeit ist unerheblich . Wenn wir in einem Flow
      sind kann es auch gut gehen !

                                          Gold von mir

      Thank you, Holger. That was exactly my approach in this piece. I wanted to try something different and more expressive.
