This seems to be everyone's favorite piece of mine and so I re-scanned it, and it has come out a lot better.
This is based on a photograph from the Korean War.
What I was going for here was to make the left side darker than the right, and have the Angel shielding the Hero of the piece from the darkness with his wing, but letting the light shine on him from the other side. Also you can see that the base of the piece where the Hero is, is much darker than the top where the Angel is more prominently featured.
It's actually a little bigger than this, the original (11" x 14") doesn't feels so cramped.
