Very nice! I think this is your best figure so far.

Very interesting background setting. Could you explain how you did it?

@ Engin - thanks my friend! It took over a month (I usually paint in the late evenings) to finish this figure but it was great fun. As for quality of pictures and the background - I do belive that final result is effect of finding right background colors matching the figure.

@ Frank - thank you very much! I really like this figure and I must say it is very well designed.

@ Mario - thank you very much! I don't know if it's my best figure but it is most eye catching for sure (the witcher is much darker and Pawnee was focused mostly on skintones).

Here comes the background setting explenation: I found THIS article on Massive Voodoo few days ago. I've printed the backgrounds downloaded from there and here we are. Since there are few versions of this background you can easily match the background to the colors of your figure and bring them up much better than with a monochromatic background (or at least in a different way...).

Thanks for watching and comments!
