Not bad, Mark. Your UNSC marines are underexposed, but the other
pictures look
good. Your painting is very good!

If you need a light source, I suggest that you look into getting
lamps (if doing this a lot) or photographing outside. You can pay a
_lot_ for
photo lamps; mine were made for about C$50. It consists of a regular
socket, an aluminum shade that screws onto it, and the socket itself
to a standard tripod (though you can buy inexpensive tripods for
lights). The
lamps are expensive, at about $5 a light bulb that lasts 3 hours (make
sure to
turn them off when not using) but the results are excellent.

One other thing... your e-mail is going out with your name listed as
"Mark A.
Siefer". Is this deliberate, or did the "t" on the end get truncated or
