        • Excellent work, though I feel the overall contrast should be increased (like on the helmets area)

        • This is best seen full sized because it's huge. I literally copied the format off a book of stamps in my stamp box.
        • One stamp is fine but repeat it 7 times?
        • Sure! It's a bit I know, but I wanted to do it right. I wanted the effect of a book of stamps. I copied the the layout of a book of stamps I had. They had a USA flag on them.
