Thanks Chris, as they say practice makes perfect and I'm still practicing so you'll see more art from me.

This piece has the most figures I've ever painted and I had to go to a local museum to get good reference for the muskets and period costumes. It probably took me about 80hrs. to paint.

Top, top quality. You have such a grasp of realistic rendering, but that doesn't get in the way of the action. This one blows me away!

Okay, now i'm definately jealous....The central figure looks soooooo real! the lighting and everything...wow. How long did this take you?!?

Art at its best.
