My most recent painting project was bit out of left field; for the first time, I painted a miniature representation of someone I knew in the flesh.

The friend in question is the steampunk cosplayer Alexandre Adam, who is behind the character of Baron Celcius Von Fahrenheit. He is also the guy behind the Youtube channel Kinetoscope Parlour, where he meets “strange and wonderful people”, coming from the steampunk subculture or other completely different way of being strange.
You can see here the photo montage used for the contest, which also served as the basis for the sculpting of the model. The picture was taken by Convoke Photography.
