    I like your cross contour in this around the foxhole and especially on the blanket surrounding the soldier. His head and face have just the right amount of detail and the inclusion of the roof of the foxhole makes this read real well. I also like the slant in the foreground and the one on the roof. Nice composition. The helmut and the rifle balance the whole scene.

    I missed you. You were celebrating Christmas and the New Year and writing, I assume.

    Agreed, this feels like a complete scene — no “missing background” issues like we talked about last week. I like the scratchy feel here, too.

    I’ve been busy working on a couple of projects for other people and as soon as those are finished I look forward to sharing them, but I figured I’d better put up a couple sketches to show I’m still alive…
