  • Marc Revés

    Very nice OSL!!!

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Thank you, Marc! Happy that you like it!

  • Ocarina

    I like the OSL very much. It’s so shiny and it looks like there is a little LED in it. Great!

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Thank you very much! I am happy that the OSL works so strong. I think it is because of the darkness in the paintjob that supports the light.

  • fabrizio1969PLUS

    wow what you paint rhe green? do you use fluorescent colors?

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Yes, there is flouroscent green, mixed with tourqouise and white, glazed on a pure white ball. Thank you!

  • Mateu_RebPLUS

    Gran trabajo.

  • David KuehnPLUS

    Great work, Roman! Even more than the glow, I like the skin irregularities and the bluish shadows on his left side. And: one can tell that you’re having lots of fun painting these days. Big hugs from the North!

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Thank you, David. I am really happy to hear that. Yeah, I got that feeling these days to finish stuff that I carry around since the last year. Stuff I started during coachings and it is fun to bring these to the finish line.

  • Štěpán Tichý

    Your love for green is very clear in this piece, Roman! Lots of happy painting happened here. Also the wrinkled skin on the forehead is greatly rendered!

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Yes, green is so awwwww ... many thanks, Štěpán. Glad the small details are visible. As always, thank you for your eagle eyes!

  • Frédéric BISSEUX (MINOS)

    L’effet lumineux est bluffant ! Il a l’air de parfaitement fonctionner ! J’espère qu’un jour j’arriverai à réaliser ce genre de chose, je m’y suis frotté une seule fois pour le moment, mais sans succès ^_^. Bravo !

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      I can say from my first try that it needs more than one try to look like this. I would say 47 minimum. Do not give up, learning comes from the experience in failing and my first one looked different than this too! Merci beaucoup, Frédéric!

  • Ladislav "Gwinn" Indra

    Wow, the OSL on here is something else, looks super realistic!

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Many thanks, Ladislav. Happy that you like it and that the glow feels real!

  • Werner Kellens

    Amazing OSL

  • Manuel W

    The OSL is insanely beautiful! But what really sticks out to me is the wonderful skin. The freckles and irregularities are truly superb!

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Many, many thanks, Manuel. Skin lives with these irregularities in my eyes. Your eagle eye is appreciated!

  • MartinSporka

    What is the radiation situation here? :)
