Celestine, the living Saint

Celestine, the living Saint

My best miniature up to now. It won the absolute award in the 2004 Barcelona's GW painting contest.
My second attempt at NMM.
Wanted to create the contrast between the saint and the dark world of WH40k using the base and the colours.
It was painted too quickly, in 10 days, 13 hours per day, and 17 hours the last day, so you can understand in this conditions I couldn't do all I can (even if it ended being my best figure). I'll convert one and paint really as I can, time to show my skills has come!!
Please, leave comments, and rate the miniature, not the pic quality!
Hope you like it!
cheers, albert

I'm speechless... At 16 I was flipping burgers a McDonald's while you're creating masterpieces - life is so unfair. Your name has been added to my list of 'people I hate' - you've been warned.

Well, it may be the finest green/purple blending i ever saw, so smooth, so beautiful... The colour scheme is awesome..even if my idea of a SOB isn't with that colour scheme. I oike the base too. The NMM is very... singular (how d'you say it in english... singulier) but feets the mini very well. a 9.7 well deserved and maybe a 10 if you add a closer pic of celestine's face. Michael

the painting is so sweat !!! wonderful job and beatiful NMM the colours sheme is fantastic, and in your style of paint too, green, blue, purple... like your 2003 eldars scouad perhaps the face need more light? or it the picture? the base is wonderfull too , but i thinkd the imerial eagle is not util. and some freehand in the plinth no the simplicity here is better than freehand i think. a beautiful mini !!!! julien

Whow... If ever a 10 was well earned, that's this one! Beautiful work, technically masterful, excellent colours choice... *applauds*

Nos es porque seas tú, o seas epañol, no, es porque la miniatura es la caña, una de las mejores Celestine que he visto hasta la fecha y quizás de las más originales en cunato a la elección de colores... me gustan mucho los degradados (me recuerdan a los de AlexiZ que me encantan). La base genial, que pasada... no pedi ponerle ninguna pega... quizás me hubiera gustado un tono de piel más pálido, pero bah, es por decir algo... Joder tío, como mejoras... ¡que envidia!

Just amazing! Albert my friend, you are the man! Incredible how you have made all the colors look so good together. the base is really nice. Its good to see that it is not only Cyril who can make them look so good You keep improving and you will have your Slayersword some day. Wanna bet?

simply stunning! A feather in your cap, for sure. GW must be very proud of this model, because it brings out the most inspiring paintjobs in people, and yours is no exception.
