Welcome to Mombassa.
Here it started
and here it will end
Well, i was very close to abandoning this piece, but thanks to everyone's encouragement I finished it off. So thank you every one who offered support and advice - i am truly grateful.
But yep, i'm off to Hong Kong in a few hours, and it's exactly 30 mins to new year where i live, so I guess I should say Happy 2008!!!
again, I can't stress how thankful I am for your support (you know who you are
) - I am now a lot happier with this piece, in fact, very happy
thanks all for viewing!

ps: i felt like adding that i used only a couple of textures in this - the camouflage texture, the hessian bag texture for the gloves and some slate textures for some of the rocks. the scratches, foreground rocks and everything else were hand drawn with a tablet
