WIP june

just wanted to give an impression of my next work. My painting table looks like a battlefield, yes I know, but I think that's always a good sign, when a project starts like this ;)
This time, dark elf, published by Scale75. I'm very curious about, how this miniature will look like after finishing.

Tournament knight

Hiho miniature fanatics,

Certainly, some will wonder about, what became of the the tournament knight, I shared WIP`s of, some time ago. Now, I would`t deprive you my first historical 54er. I have learned so much once again... for example, that it is very difficult to paint the same freehand 18 times ;)
The base I made very simple, at the request of the collector.

The pictures aren`t really nice... made them with my tablet.

Spring Angel 2013 in Moscow

Hey everyone
Last weekend, the russian alternative hosted the Spring Angel again in Moscow. This was a veeery nice meeting of the mainly russian miniature painting comunity, but also some foreign visitors found the way to Moscow.

I never had an bad image of the people in russia, but this trip changed my meaning still once more.
I rarely experienced such a hospitality. In every minute of the trip I felt best provided.
Forget all, what you know about painting competitions and miniature events, like GD's. No entrance fee, free workshops, cash prizes for the winning entries, free breakfast, free lunch...
So you can see, this is the first event, where you only can win!
I heard,, that the next big event of the russian alternative should be held next year, somewhere in the middle of Europe, so all you painterfriends out there, please start the engine of your brushes, create some awesome works and meet all the nice people there.
Thanks to Kati, Sergey, the russian alternative and all the great people I met in Moscow, thank you sooo much for this unforgetable trip.

The trip in pictures...

I`m still alive, but...

I´m burying myself in commission works at the moment.
So, don`t think I`m inactive ;)
First, a picture of my workbench with two very different miniatures, I`m working on, at the moment. Both in early stages...
and some impressions of my latest work, called "Candyshop" or "Lasagne^^"

Miniature holder, 2G

Hello creative friends

The new holders will be available in the shop below. 

Sale starts on monday. 

The second version of my miniature holder is available in the next days... monday, I think.

With this holder it is possible to minimize the tremor while painting or sculpting. At first glance, the holder looks a bit strange 

and you don`t know how and if the thing might help. But the enlightenment comes when you have worked with it.

In the second version I changed the base a bit:

-The cork is now removable
- You don`t need to stick the pins of your workpiece into the cork any more. Pins will clamped between two    cork halves, because the hole in the base and the cork is conical.

-Comfortable handling
-Precise painting and sculpting without to tremble, by resting your brush holding fingers on the wire bar.
-The wire bar is rotatable around the workpiece (360 degrees)
-Without contact: The workpiece must never be touched with the fingers

-Suitable for painting and sculpting miniatures
-Suitable for single miniatures 28-54mm, small busts, etc.
-Suitable for right-and left-hander
-miniatures on custom bases can also be fixed on the ceramic base   with bluetac or Patafix
-Every single miniatures-holder was made by me by hand and checked for function.
-Wire bar can be disassembled for priming your miniature and to remove the finished work

-For baking sculpts in the oven, remove the small skull
-Available in two versions, small for 28-32mm mini's and large for 54mm miniatures

Miniature holder update

The sale of the new miniature holder  

2 Generation,
