  • Merry Christmas to you too! Great job with the sidewalk. 🙂
  • Thanks! It wasn't the hardest, but getting in between the lines and fleshing that out took some work. I appreciate you noticing the small details, it's why I spend hours pouring over an image!
  • Ha, the sidewalk! Serious tho, details like that, you guys are amazing. Merry Christmas!
  • Thank you, the devil's really in the details - and to you, too!
  • how do you do it? Software? Guess-work? Experience?

  • I believe his helmet is called a Brodie Helmet. It was a helmet manufactured by the British during WWI. I'll add a link in a little while when I get back home. Edit: Link
