Grew up in the late 60s early 70s with SGT Rock. Attribute my fascination with history to this character. Big fan of the Haunted Tank as well. You've captured the old solder very nicely. Strong work. Thanks for the memory jog.
well i feel like i'm a constant student. i also learned a great deal after college from every studio i visited and every artist i hung out with. and i know a lot of pros who have no formal training and they are some of the best in the business. between the internet and your local library and bookstores you can learn most anything.
