 Good evening, dear fellow painters.

Today's post is a step into Greek Mythology, as I wanted to show you my first painted Cyclops from the eponymous set by Dark Alliance (#72054).

The most famous Cyclops from the mythology is of course Polyphemos, whose name literally means "who speaks a lot", and who is known for capturing Ulysses and his companions, eating some of them but was eventually blinded by them.

So these guys were much larger than ordinary humans, and the minis by Dark Alliance are accurately sculpted in my taste.

(Yes, I tried to paint an owl free hand, and no, the result is not very good :D)

I used the same Mediterranean skin colour as for the Greek warriors - hope you find it convincing.

See you :)
