Re: Two soldiers and a Priest

Sillicus does some excellent and well researched authenti-painting at shows these days, and did all the banners for Britannia's Guildhall show this Summer, which were extremely striking and provoked a great deal of interest. You wouldn't guess he used to illustrate for certain...ahem... *specialist...

Eh? :wtf:
What I mean is - Retouching photos manually with gouache paint through a DeVilviss airbrush. When it worked properly you could spray a 1mm line with it!!!!!! Not Photoshop.

Selling?

This was taken originally by Wayland or Mags, I edited the two top ropes of the Standard out and then put a filter on the image!! Weirdly enough the overcast sky on the Sunday has produced some excellent contrasting colours from the kit.
