Goals for 2012 are simple - paint, paint, paint. Screw contests, voting, improving skills. I want to paint and have fun doing that. Of course, my standard approach of painting varied subjects will remain. Also, I do want to finish what's unfinished, get rid of my Hall of Shame blocking the painting desk. And, I do want to paint some gifts for my mates
and that's why I've started painting two completely new things, one for myself and one for e-bay I have a PADHD syndrome....
One of them is actually finished. It's an OOP dwarf bust from Tales of War range (new company in my showcase!). It started as a standard dwarf with some suitably dwarfish name I can't recall, but with every layer of paint and every page of a comic book based on Hobbit I read to my son it became obvious that it is not just any dwarf...
Here he is in all his glory - Thorin Oakenshied, son of Thrain, son of Thror - King Under the Mountain

By the way, I laughed my ass off when I asked my 6 yo son if he knows who it is and got his reply:
Well, I'm sure it's not Robin Hood
