    Dramatic piece my friend ... the snow really compliment the riders uniform, I really love the balanced colours you used, for me this is one of the top projects you have made so far ... one small suggestion though might be an artistic license as not sure if it happens in could climate but being so dramatic and an element of charge I guess some little foam, very prominent on excited horses especially near the dressings chest area would really add more drama, x'tahseb?

    I know it is tricky, and surely these gems cannot be an experiment for; but study a bit Ruina's Civil War duel he presented at WE and Euro, he managed to do the effect and was just paint work, so I think with some thaught and experimentation can be done. Maybe for future and I know you can come with some sort of an painting tip for it king

    It looks super painted, you get better with every piece you produce, it is brilliant, the expressions are so lifelike and you can almost hear the action, well done master.
