    Fantastic job! This looks amazing! Did you use acrylics or oils for the reds?

    Stunning paintwork Ron.
    One remark: his right eye has a larger Iris then the left.
    (I know it is a difficult task to get them equale, but on this scale it looks strange when they are not)
    Sorry for neatpicking

    You are right Marc it does need a little adjustment,entered it in the IPMS show
    in Glasgow alongside Dave Mitchell's stuff , he also pointed that fault out so will correct it tomorrow but need to get a new fine detail brush.
    Cheers :eek:
