Sichuan earthquake paintings - Protrait 01

Protrait 01 done in for my bigger artwork for tribute to the victims of earthquake. The link to the final artwork here.

Short description: The boy in the picture, Lang Zheng, was given a nickname called "Saluting Doll" on the net. He was saved by the People's liberation Army and he thanked them by giving a salute when he's still on a stretcher. It really touches the heart of many when they saw the salute he gives just after he was saved. He's well and drinking now. The boy also says that he wants to be a police officer in the future to help others in the country. His dad is a policeman who is helping out in other provinces and still never visited him since the earthquake.
