Nice work High Eight :D I first thought it was some lost work by Vincent van Gogh :lol:

:mrgreen: Hoopy work peeps - especially like your abstract High8 :clap:

Here's my 'latest' effort ( :oops: well about 6 months ago) that's vaguely Discy for those who didn't see it yet although it's for my own site

and a link to my own Deviant gallery pages - must work on them some more... :shifty:

I wish I had a thousandth of his talent!

Mind you, I have sold twice as many paintings as he did in his entire life - TWO! :ugeek:

Way, way back in 2005, I attended the last Clarecraft event. I had a go at the 'Paint-Your-Own' event, but my eyesight really wasn't up to the job. At the time I bought three of their unpainted figures from a range that I think was called Woodland Warrors (correct me if I'm wrong). I wasn't much interested in the Discworld figures - apart from anything else, they were really quite expensive, where as the ones I got weren't. ;)

Anyhow - nearly seven years later and a decent pair of varifocals and I've finally got the figures painted.

I'm quite pleased with the results, which you can see here. :geek:

Nice work Tony, they must have taken a while to do (not including the seven years to get started). :D

Nice work Tony. I wouldn't have the patience to do anything like that.
