Very cool Mike. I love the penguins peeking around the bow of the ship.

This was fast!!

The dio came out really good and you have mastered the PE set - the penguins are definitely a nice touch, as is the dirty snow/ice traffic area. I have the booklet and you have successfully replicated the photo, and the ice is also convincing!

Congratulations Mike, and I am looking forward for your next project!

Wow, beautiful work! I also have the book and yep, you brought it together very well. I only have one complaint- pleeeeease give us some higher resolution pictures! They're coming out very choppy and pixelated for me, and I'd love to be able to get a clearer view of your amazing work!

Penguins are a very good touch.
