    David, Man, this is one of the most well painted and realistic looking faces ever! I actually thought it was a snapshot of a re-enactor at first. Great Job! I second the motion on the Artist Oil Mixes you use for your face...

    This bust has the face of a guy hardened in many battles, a true veteran. Excellent work on wrinkles around the eyes and the ruffles of the shirt.

    I like the understatment of the smallpox scars on his face. It's very hard to strike the correct balance to achieve the level of realism that you've attained. Very nice!

    Best!
