Not bad, but there are a few things I need to point out here.

First off, this is not the Lincoln Monument, it's the Lincoln Memorial as your reference image states. Secondly, this isn't architecture, it's just a sculpture. I suggest trying to build the rest of the temple in order to make this count as architecture. Also, it looks like Abe is piloting a podracer, :laugh:  so I think it would be better if you could find a way to attach his arms on top of the armrests. I am also not sure about the hair choice. Personally, I would prefer Count Dooku hair or generic male hair, but it's up to you.

No offense, it's a good start, but far from being a worthy addition to the architecture line in my opinion.

Yeah, the whole building would be better suited to the contest. The only architecture I see is two columns. It's a good start though. I know you said it in your post, but how was this picture not taken in '07? Did you take the picture yesterday, and just for kicks you put '07, I don't get it...

You're not the only one.  :wacko: Also, if possible, could you use this piece for Lincoln's hair:

I find it much more realistic.
Also, why are his arms positioned like that? He looks like he is angrily getting up...

You updates looks nice. Lincoln doesn't look so angry now.

Looks good. I have to agree with what others have said, you should try a different hair piece of the same color. I really like the lighting on the second picture, maybe it would be good to have your first picture like that too?

Anyways, good luck.  :thumbup:
