The face painting on the Saracens don't look up to your usual standard Algu? It might just be the pictures, or wet paint? (not that I could do any better!)

Besides that, lovely painted horse and rider, and the interaction between the figures makes this an exciting vignette.

I think the wet paint is the problem. They usualy receive some more after drying.

You work fast my friend on this triple dose piece !!! It seems that it really inspires you . I like it so far .
If i could nit pick a bit i would ask for some smoother blending on the shadows of the horse riders cloak .

waiting for the next steps
