This is definitely pretty slick; I love the environment they're in. Futuristic and at the same time it appears to be in our time period. The vibrant colors for a war scene are a new thing to me as well. You have an excellent inner eye though you've probably gotten that kind of praise before.
This picture is stunning. I absolutely adore the way that the background just fades into nothing, tha tyou didn't try to create a fancy background and that it's very simple. The army men are GREAT, really amazing, so detailed and yet simple. A very good watercolour replication (assuming fo course it wasn't actually done with watercolour, it looks digital). Their posture is all very natural, and I like how they're all just slightly varied, it feels like a screen shot out of a video game, or a really really fancy cartoon. Increadable artwork as per usual!
Nice. Now just one question: Iraq or Afghanistan? That marketplace setting could honestly be anywhere in Arabia or southern Asia. And as far as the radioman, I'd be more concerned about snagging my antenna on something, then it whipping back and slapping me in the head, helmet or no helmet.
