This painting has been my nemesis for the last three months, but it is finally finished!
I have a been a student of Jonathan Hardesty (MindCandyMan) for the past two years, and this is my first major still life painting.
Objects include a 72mm figure from Reaper Minis that I painted a few years back, a couple cards from an 80's board game that I found in my closet ("Dragonmaster"), and some d20 dice.
Wouldn't mind if You post the statue. It's art.
Amyway the best thing about this is how it tells the story, I mean I get it.
I'm the guy that does his job! You must be the other guy!

Love this throw back still life man. I spent many night geeking out with paraphernalia like this hehe. Awesome job man. Just so everyone knows this is really his first true oil painting ever as well...which is pretty impressive if you ask me.
Excellent execution and very pleasing composition!
You´ve changed your nick name, right? I was a bit confused because I knew the avatar but the nick did not sound familiar to me.
I am close to finish my still life soon. If you are curios, just click the link in my signature. Jonathan, you are also welcome to visit my thread, since you are one of those that motivated me to do the classical studies.

Thanks guys for the comments!
The figurine in this painting was fun to paint. I learned a lot about how to work with intricate forms so they read properly as 3D. Already gathering a few items for another composition with a fantasy theme, maybe I'll try to include d20 die this time
