Excuse me,
I think it's a really good job and I want to ask you if I can use your artwork for a poster of the school that speak about of Buffalo Soldiers ?

This reminds me of Glory. The Cononel was named Robert Shawn, and he looked very much like this. Lovely picture =D

I went to a Civil War reenactment a few months ago and didn't think I was going to do anything with the images...but this gave me inspiration to pull them out and play with them.....I absolutely love all your work! All is inspirational but I think this one is the only one is the o only one I feel comfortable attempting at my skill level.....practice practice practice and you are at the top of my list of artists! Totally awesome...
