Beautiful and dramatic, this is simply gorgeous for dozens of reasons. I enjoy the unconcerned expression, but the preparedness of holding the hammer ready. Great story telling here. Thank you for sharing your talent and imagination with us.
I was just goofing with you- I agree putting a ton of work into something to just get a picture that looks like a photo doesn't make a lot of sense. But realism and photography aren't exactly the same thing. Anyway, I think my stuff will always look a bit goofy even if I try to shade and render it.
