This is the other piece I entered into Golden Demon Competition here in Australia and Guess what -This one Actually has made it to the Regional finals WHOO HOOO "it is only a 25mm figure"
I have sculpted the Lions head on the bike , the flying coat tails and scarf and also the details on the back of the bike- I even gave the bike slicks and even narrowed the front tyre (this took several days of filing and filling AAAGH.
:-) :-)

Gday, Ian:

Wow, mate what a fertile and creative imagination you have. Just love
looking at the creations you come up with. Super. . . I get a good feeling,
a sense of well being when I look at your work. Dude, that lions head
over the handlebars is killer. . . what creativity! Congrats

Congratulations Ian!!
Cool model! I love those lions on front, looks very beautiful! Good that you narrowed the wheel, GW isn't really known for making things realistic...

I can see some Dark Angel symbols together with the lions, is it perhaps Lion El'Johnson on his bike?

Ric -thanks for the comments my friend -I think I just need a"life"
Markus- I always like to challenge myself- NOT the best figure I ever painted but I have tried to keep it from being "busy".

Andreas - I really hoped you would see it as I especially posted it for you my friend -you and me are both tainted by the little fellows and also this is the first time I have actually made it to next round so I am absolutely chuffed - especially when my casual job there ended in september - but the good thing I did not have to enter into the "staff" comp- that is a very tough section.
