I like your approach - I need to show more patience and split the work out over a few days (instead of trying to get the whole thing done in an hour).
You've got talent too and I hope you continue and share your art.
Yes, my style and skill have evolved over time and effort. I'm glad you like my sketches. I don't have a great imagination so I rely on photos of reenactors. They contain more action than period photographs.
