Great work. With respect to Countersnipe the composition is the highlight for me - beautifully simple, and majestic isn't too strong a word; not something you can often say about a mini. The base focusses all of your attention on the figure. Nicely done.
What really sold me on this was how you worked on the skin. The change in value is so smooth and controlled and is a real reflection of your brush control and patience. I just wish this piece was on some type of custom made sculpted base instead of some dirt. The way you painted the piece to be so majestic just seems slightly overwhelming in comparison to the base, but that's me. Also, the reflection of the blue flame on the body and wing is a nice touch. Really helps bring out the realism of the piece.
