Wow! Jollain lailla sulla on aina ollut hirveän hauskoja (ja vaativia) perspektiivejä - etenkin noissa dinosauruskuvissa, mutta hyvin yläviisto näyttää toimivan sotataiteessakin.

I allready spilled my thoughts about your paintings on previous one ;3
but this one is so nice... i like the technique and the perspective, and the story feels even more sad...

"when i am painting with acrylics for example, every layer i use looks cut and pasted into the picture, guess i just need some practise"

Nee, it was made in coloredpencils, i only used some white acrylics for sparkles of water and his tail there :)
but for example... look at "insane view" can be found if you browse paintings.

Since I've known you your skills have improved. At first, a face from this perspective would have thrown you, but now you're kicking ass all over the place.

When viewed in light of the things you can pull off with your dinosaur sketches and so on, I'm tremendously impressed. Well done man!

Actually I was pretty worried because I've noticed that ink drawing-style differs quite a bit from painting-style. Mixing the two together was however an interesting experiment and I might be using that again in some works in the future. So, how are things there? What's new in life? And are you planning to put something new into dA some day?

Heh, that's a subtle hint.

Things are ridiculously busy, but I hope to have time to work on something for dA shortly. The combined pen+paint work produces an interesting overall effect, looking forward to seeing more of it.

Thank you very much! Btw, I've been all over trying to decide which puukko to purchase. Sorry that this is taking so frigging long! Oh, and my messenger is down, like most parts of my computer. Hopefully I'll get it sorted out soon.

If your computer is giving you that much trouble, it might be best to recover what files you need, reformat, reinstall the operating system and then go from there slowly adding things back on until you get it to a level of functionality you can work with.

It's been difficult finding trigger mittens here for some reason, but I'll locate them soon enough. Essentially, I'm just waiting on a store downtown to get another shipment in. Unfortunately I can't find any that are "tactical," so if it's you versus the Russians, wear the issue gloves. I don't think the Russ will be fooled by "decorative knit pattern camouflage." ;)

Already burned all the files I need on DVD, so I just need to find my computer-wizard friend to do the rest.
When you start to think of it, due the serious lack of issue items in the Finnish Army during the Winter War, many Finnish men were only issued a cocard and the belt, and weapon (of course, but many brought their own, like those who belonged to Suojeluskunta) so "decorative knit pattern camouflage" and civilian clothes wasn't that unusual back then ;) nice photo of this "model Cajander")

Heh, I won't worry about it then. They are very comfortable gloves; I usually wear a close-fitting fleece/cotton blend glove under them, to wick moisture away from my hands, and use the big woolen trigger mitts as a secondary insulator.

I think I had a photo somewheres of a Canadian sniper using trigger mitts in North West Europe at one point. I'll have to find it, it's pretty funny: Full on white camouflage, bedsheet wrapped around the rifle, face is streaked with white facepaint... and then there's the trigger mittens with a white and dark brown decorative pattern on them. At least the colours were right.
