    Les, that is brilliant painting, mate. I particularly like how you've done the face - really nice skin tones, and the stubble and cuts add heaps of realism.

    Great stuff Les. The camo on the helmet looks superb as well as the overall tones. You've really nailed the "Thousand Yard" stare also.
    I like the cuts to the face, really well done.

    Great work Les, as Grant said you nailed the "100 yard stare". He looked haunted. Excellent details on the radio and the smoke grenades. I presume these were decals?
