Edit: The image posted here had alignment issues. I have made a new one and will try to post it below.
Since I already have one off-topic submission to the hoard this month, I decided to post this here. I wasted a long time googling things like "cloaked figure" before I hit on the idea of searching "Venetian Noble" (which was actually what I was trying to depict.
I found a pen and ink sketch from, I think, the period (16th century) and coloured him using the Hackbarth Process. The paintings I found showed Venetian patricians in either all black or all red, but I took some artistic licence.
When he was done he looked a little small next to the Permes pirates I want to use him with (I will scale them all down to 15mm) so I actually made him about 17% broader than the original sketch. I think he looks OK.
A very good illustration. It just seems un-miniature like, lacking the exaggerated proportions of gaming miniatures. But to use with Permes miniatures he is spot on, Permes is a more realistic designer. If I used him with Jim's and other designs more inspired by metal and plastic miniatures I would scale the head and hand a bit. 105%, 110% perhaps.
I always do a double take when I read Hackbarth Proccess. Surprises me yet. :-)
Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download

cowboyleland: I see now. Some new upgrade (windows? chrome?) blocks downloads of "multiple files" at a time. The miniscule notification that the download was blocked appears in the corner of the screen for a fraction of a second. "They" call this progress.

cowboyleland: For some reason Hoard 93 isn't downloading for me. No error message, just nothing happens when I click.

Vermin King: Every so often a Thank You goes a long way. Ray over at Ravensblight is going through a dark time ( I know. Dark is kinda his theme ), but if you appreciate his work, you might go to the site and grab his email and send him a Thank You
