Thank you, Nikolas! Hmmm, a smiling marine. Is that like an honest politician? D'oh!
Thank you, Sir! duwayne:
I'm very flattered that you admire my work! But only YOU are an expert on what you like. So please don't ever hesitate to offer an honest critique when sincerely asked. Especially to me! I do my best work when I have feedback. And I don't bite unless asked nicely.
And nice job, I'll give your ideas a try.
Absolutely right, not much color to work with. I did a lot of hand coloring too. Unfortunately, I ended up with more detail in the uniform than in the face. I'll have to keep at it.
Thank you very much! And welcome to the forums.
