Also, come close for a minute, I have a thing I’d like to share with you:

I want to grow my Power Painters Mailing list to 2,500 by the 5th of January.

I’ve set up 10+ emails to go out automatically, each of them containing little golden nuggets of art wisdom to sprinkle upon your art.

See all that? Downloads and art knowledge for you. Things to keep you inspired, breaking blocks, and picking up your pencil day after day.

So if you sign up for the list, I’ll be overjoyed to help you keep growing.

If not? Well then I guess you’re not a fan of nice things. nice FREE THINGS.

Did I yell that? I’m sorry.

Oh, I won’t lie to you and say it’s all free though, I plug my products a bit during the mailing automation.

That’s because I  freelance as an artist, and in order to say “no” to client work I’ve got to free up time.

Plus I like money :D.

Anyhow, more figure studies coming up. I love doing these because it forces you to construct the human body in various formats and scenarios. Super helpful for character work.

Stuff like this, y’know? Quick things.

Lastly, Don’t be a skeptical sally and just help me reach my goal of 2.5k email subscribers!

I promise to deliver value that’s worth it. If not you can just unsub and go eat a hoagie or something.

Forging ahead with the QR officer.

The sculptor has chosen to give the figure the double frogged cross belt, which was issued to the light infantry company to carry the bayonet and hatchet.

This officer has obviously found a different use for the hatchet slot and has chosen to carry his light infantry sabre and a bayonet for his Brown Bess musket.

While some officers carried a fusil, most officers in the British Army during the War of Independence were discouraged from carrying a firearm. It was said that an officer could not properly carry out his battlefield duties whilst trying to load and fire a flintlock.
