Snakes are cool but this entry is HOT! Love the colour choices. Excellent work. cheers
As always a beauty, Anne.
A lovely tale Anne, beautifully done.
You keep doing this, great workIan
Love the bearer's trousers and the snake looks great. Another cracker
That is excellent Anne.. really good.
This entry really jumped out at me Anne. A perfect vignette on a 50mm base. I need to investigate Reapers Pulp offerings.
Thank you all. I actually hate this as it has the look of "rank amateur" written all over it. I was a hairs breadth away from emailing Curt Sunday morning and asking him to pull it. But I promised myself I'd do it, so I'm stuck with it.
Oh to be "stuck" with such rank amateur offerings. If I had 2 very very minor points I would have turned the colonial chappie to face the snake more and tweaked base on the bearer, now I feel like the Port Vale manager criticising Chelsea. It really is a fab piece of work.
Those are the things that bug me. When there are problems with composition in a vignette or a dio, it kills the piece. A single well painted figure beats a poorly constructed vignette every time.
Anne, I like it posed as is. The poor chap about to be bitten has a great expression of surprise, almost as if he's shouting "what? where?" at the warning from somebody.The poor bearer's stoic expression and posing works - a combo of "no skin off my nose" and "damn, I'm not getting paid if he dies, am I?"I hope it grows on you - it's very well done!
Lovely stuff Anne. So glad that you didn't bin it!Cheer, PD
Wonderful colours, all of them are really well balanced in the vignette. But.. poor chap, the one with the barrel!Great painting work and base!
That poor bugger with the cask... A lovely yellow on him! Great brushwork Anne.
Really nice, Anne! Like others, I'm glad you didn't have Curt pull the post!
