Quick shots of the final version of this New Zealander serving in the Western Desert during WW2.

I have been watching this one come to life on pF. It really is an amazing work... the best part for me is definitely the face with extremely expressive eyes and all the different textures which are ultra-realistically represented.

Amazing!

Thanks Mario for kind words, especially about the face which is the part I try to anchor my painting on.


Stay safe
