Beautiful work on this little vignette, OM!  I envy you folks who can paint figures so convincingly.
Cheers,
Bud

You have mastered the art of figure painting OM something that I can never do, you have done a superb job with these two figures.

Thanks a lot, guys.

I appreciate your kind comments. I promise you I am no great shakes as a figure painter, but I did my best on these. I am reasonably satisfied with how they turned out, and lame as it may sound, I think they look a little better in person than in the pictures. Photographing these is a very different animacule than photographing an aeroplane model.
