I did some work on the gears this evening. Next task: refine the cooling tower and add the radio tower. This painting has come a LONG way – it started out looking like this:

The only things that haven't been majorly modified are the shield and the smoke-stack/rider. Everything else has been changed and refined. The original concept has remained the same, but it's hardly the same painting.

The original is a mess. The horse has an extra joint in it's front leg, for crissakes. When people talk about Talent I tend to roll my eyes. Talent has nothing to do with it. PERSISTANCE is the real key – persistence and an ability to learn from your mistakes.
