The "rules" are;
- Medieval king/high ranking knight (mounted, dismounted, running, sleeping)
- One animal (not a horse, but a horse can be included)
- One handpainted shield with heraldic (no need to be advanced)
Usually I would use transfers or printed Heraldry and this is my first real attempt at creating them freehand (and my last! :-D )
The bod is from Valdemar and the hound from Outcast figures Set Nap. Ziv. 03. I twisted the neck of the hound so it ended up looking around slightly.
A couple of other "style" photos.
After a minute or so my concentration would lapse, my grip on the tweezers loosened and plop went doggy. Also putting the dog down to rest on it´s feet was near impossible so, a flash of inspiration and I came up with a solution :-D Wrap a small rubber band around the tweezers!
This not only means a constant grip is maintained on the piece but it can be put down without any part of it sticking to a surface!
