    Sam, a very good result my friend. I think it's fantastic that you are stretching your skills to the limit which will only ever help you to achieve better results as you go on. I like this, it's different, imaginative and well executed, with your obvious talent as a painter bringing it to life. Drapery is the key to sculpting ( I'm no sculptor but I did A level human biology and have A's in Gcse art and ceramics) and is something I am getting in to as I mod figures, grasping gravity and movement in clothing is a skill that takes years of practice and/ or qualifications so to achieve what you have here with very little experience is an indication of an underlying talent that simply needs to be harnessed.

    Superb mate!

    As you say Sam, a couple of issues with the drapery, but so what.
    Glad you enjoyed it, and it shows in the painting.
    Look forwards to you next one,
