Marine #3 – More Progress

Here’s what we’re looking at today, almost 24 hrs later.  I’ve decided to remove the long hair, and I’m now working on the shadows on the legs and cockpit.  Thanks for your feedback, readers!  My biggest choice now is the color of the shorts, given that there are lots of different shades of color involved.
