    Outstanding painting David. The eyes are brilliant, and I particularly like the subtle red hues you've added to the skin tones.

    Beautifully done David. The subtle reflection of the cloak colour on the lower surfaces of the hemet comes through quite well in the photos so will look brilliant in the 'flesh'.
    Sculpting of the mail looks about as good as it gets.
    Should be a winner for Ian.
