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!
