Very nice work! Compared to other figures in this scale your heads are small. But this gives your range a unique and personal touch. Its a little bit like in the fashion design drawings: long limbs to direct all attention to the dress. And small heads, hand and feet, making it the opposite from cartoonesk dwarve-like miniatures. I like it a lot.

Thanks Mr.Cryns. You are always an oberserver with sharp eyes.
Actually when i showed my computer model to my friends, the "small head" was the most disputable part.
Like you said most small scale figures have big heads to make it easier to see and paint the face. I personally do not like the cartoon-like style. Thanks to the 3d-pringiting technology, I may use my computer model multi-times for different scale. When you make a larger scale model like 1/48 or 1/35, the big head will look not as comfortable as 1/72.
That is the reason i stick to a "small head" design. I am very happy that you like it because some of my friends prefer a big head design.

Is that because of realistic proportions? Or are we used to see the bigger dolls (Barbie, Action Man) having small heads and long limbs?

You are welcome :-D . But do not forget your friends may prefer a big head because they want to combine your figures with other manufacturers models. If your aim is to sell your figures, you will have a problem. Only people who want to build a "Rayloryan-figures only" diorama or wargame army will be satisfied, don't you think?
