Golgotha

Here is my latest miniature and my best effort to date. Between 2002-2004,
I spent two years and 500-600 hours painting it. I am particularly proud of
the extensive freehand painting all over the figure, having over 130 free
handed faces, twisted bodies and tormented souls (and some optical illusions
and hidden symbology) painted on nearly every square inch of the model. My
favorite part is the back of the banner, which I think captures the look,
lighting and feel of an ancient oil painting done in the tradition of the
old “Realism” masters of the 15-18th century.

Yes, this is miniature that was disqualified in the UK 2004 Golden Demon for
its use of Religious imagery. My efforts to make horrifying daemon of
ancient Gothic evil had its price in competition. Thanks to everyone who
did not post pics of my miniature to allow me to reenter the competition--a
real tribute to the internet minipainter community. Look for my upcoming
article on coolminiornot describing my four year journey through two
competitions on two continents, the great people I met, as well as the
symbolism on the figure.

Some of the religious imagery looks like it's straight from a cathedral. Fantastic work.

I read on you other photo of this that the Devil was supposed to be stomping on a cyber cherub. Will you ever finish that concept or will you just leave it like this?

The fact that this was dq'd from the Golden Demon competition makes me lose so much respect for it. This is one of the finest pieces of miniature art I have EVER seen and one of the few I have jaw dropped and said "My god this is beautiful". Pure 10. No need to even think it over. 10 10 10 10 10.
