    great work John and great color choice.
    My only comment would be that I find him a little pale into the face.

    Pose, face with nose on air gives this guy a real attitude you've captured mate.

    Colouring also sets him apart as a wealthy, dandy mercenary

    Good on ya mate!

    Look forward to seeing him based up & done :)

    Stunning John, the colours are superb. The blue/ purple colour of the tunic and trousers contrast nicely with the port wine colour of the sash.

    I really like the colors you have chosen, especially the purple that is very difficult to paint, for me at least.
