    Hi, this was a quick project - a small transformation of Raul Latorre's David Crockett figure into a trapper, c. 1840. The only change I made was to add a beard and moustache. It was painted in acrylics. Please let me know what you think!

    Great painting Edward.
    I am amazed at the difference the full set of whiskers makes. An inspired addition.

    Really nicely painted Ed, can I just say he looks very clean, would he not be a little dirty, just a thought. Other than that, it's cracking

    Very nice Ed.

    Again, it's amazing the difference facial hair or a different hairstyle gives a figure. Inventive, simple, and very effective mate. Nice one.
