Hand Painted Gnome by Wood-Splitter-Lee Hand Painted Gnome by Wood-Splitter-Lee
So I was asked by one of the secretaries at Weta here if I could paint this gnome for some sort of charity fund raiser and she gave me complete artistic freedom! ... And this is what happened. :D

That's one awesome gnome :D
Nice details!
and somehow the spirals remind me a bit of celtic art, though I know it's your own imagination ^^
Looks really cool!

Finally, I was starting to wonder what happened, no more awesomeness from you.... too busy, perhaps?
Anyway - I would love one of these to my garden!

Oh thanks!  And yes sorry Auction Adoptions have come to a temporary halt until I return from New Zealand due to being invited to come work on some projects at the film company "Weta Workshop"  But I will start posting creatures again as soon as possible!  As well as what I've been working on at Weta!  :la:
