Johan, The Red Knight

Johan The Red Knight is based on a comic figure. Well known here in Flanders. When I first saw this figure from the Caesar Fantasy Figures Heroes, I wanted him to paint this way. And I think he's a good look-a-like.


What do you think? Does he look like him?

The hair must have been a little more yellow, but that's a detail.


I hope you like him!

Currently painting: Zvezda Vikings, Hat Zulu's

Currently reading: Naomi Novik's Victory of Eagles
