I did one, stuck with the blue pea coat though, I've got no imagination.   ::)

I am such a Hugo Pratt fan it would seem like sacrilege to paint him "imaginatively." Hell, even Blood's stripey clown trousers have me silently tutting and harrumphing to myself.  lol

I'm afraid mine will be the boring standard paint job we have already seen several times. I just wouldn't be able to bring myself to do anything else.

Thálatta! Thálatta!

Good point. And often he is depicted in a similar coat, but of a much longer cut...



Perhaps it is time to deploy the Green Stuff...

One more paint job!







This figure was a blast... I really appreciate having a chance to paint something cool that I might not have actually picked on my own :)  So, thank you!

Thanks!  A commenter elsewhere said that it does make him look a lot different from the 2-D version who's done in less saturated watercolours, but this is my style and I yam what I yam ;)

It is a bit over-the-top flamboyant, so if that wasn't the look you wanted... probably wise :)  It's still a very good paint job :)
