This was my entry for the Lord of the Ring category in the UK Golden demons this year. I just want to take the time to say that I had a blast! I wish there had been even more time to hang around and chat! That I manage to get gold with this one was just a big bonus! I am really chuffed!

I'm quite happy how it came out overall. The face was a try to do even more detailing and get a feel for the expression of the miniature and try to also show a bit of the bonestructure. It was really helpful to look at historical larger scale miniatures and of course traditional art. I did have to do some slight re-sculpting though as the cast was missing one eye and a few other bits. The sculpt was pretty flat but that also meant that I could draw out all the detailing of the face and really make it my own.

I felt that I had to practice my freehand as well. So I thought I would do something over the top. The main inspiration was the painting of the so called "Russian Vityaz" Mine is not as sharp as theirs but it was really fun trying to analyse how they do their patterns. I went with pretty subdued colouring though just so that the freehand wouldn't take too much attention. Hopefully it works.

I got some really helpful suggestions during the way from Anders, Sebastian and Cedric! Thank you very much!

Comments and critique are very welcome!

Cheers and again great meeting all of you!

was a real pleasure meeting you at long last and I love this piece so mch.. such a simple model brought to life with extraordinary painted detail. IRL the freehand looked a lot more subdued and really like embroidered detail.. well deserved gold....beautiful
