This is great work, but his left foot looks tiny. It's unproportioned from the rest of him.

Other than that, it looks pretty much exactly like our uniforms

thanks, yeah the foot is off a little, cant do much about it now though because it has been spray fixed. Should have taken more time to get the line work accurite, but as you can imagine, I work from left to right, and by the time I got to the foot, I had already spent about a week on the piece.. more patience required for the next soldier :)

One small thing, I noticed this man's left foot just looks a little too small... not sure if that was how it was in the reference photo
