This is really good! I'm really loving your ability to create depth in the art. They look just like mine, before they died. Well, nice job again :D

Left one is more colorful, but the right one looks so realistic, I could almost touch it.
Really hard to choose which one is better.

WOW :O, what have you done! Very well done ;)
I love the "Take an old work and do it again".
I've done few times it and I've amazed of the results!
I think we should do this often IF we find enough time though :D

Well done again ;)
