It’s difficult to predict how one reacts to stress. If I’m under pressure of time, I don’t usually cave but rather, I develop an unhealthy interest in something quite irrelevant to the task in hand. Hence this little cartoon beauty.
I picked the model up nearly three years ago at the Thornbury modelling show and I’ve finally got round to painting him. The. Model is a Chibi Warrior: Teutonic knight from Cartoon Miniatures and I love the style.
Cartoon style painting was all the rage a few years ago, less to be seen now but I love splashing the paint on in thick layers with little blending.
So on with the painting for this year’s Thornbury competition on Sunday: God knows what I shall find to paint by then!
