    David, great flesh tones... i really like the expression of the emperor you've capture with your painting technique.
    I am sure you'll be very please when you finish this piece.

    Absolutely masterful David.
    Amazing realism in your brush strokes here.
    Like many people, I never pay enough attention to hands. This example is a good lesson to me.
    Cheers,
