    I like that! Nice start on the painting Mike and I've got to say they are great sculpted ears.

    Extremely realistic face Mike, very cool. The stubble wouldn't look bad in a razor commercial...

    Cheers,

    looks great Mike and that ear is sorely in need of a soggy woodbine tucked behind it!

    Excellent start Mike. A face full of character. May I suggest a little more red around the eyes to convey a sense of exhaustion.

    Going by the painting so far,Mike to me has brought out a sense of melancholia and quiet thought .

    Thanks Neil, using a "Mid Caucasian" skin tone mix on this guy, with important addition Sap Green to help with jungle effect.

    What are you working on?

    Thanks for comments & tip Tony on redness around eyes. Photos don't show this but I've added a fair bit already so they are quite bloodshot.
    Now going to add some jaundice 'yellow' over each eye after advice from Phil Walden after his discussions with Kokoda veterans.

    Good idea Steve! May have a think about a spare ciggy behind one of his ears ;-)
