Solomon Kane

Took a few days to paint this one of Solomon Kane.  I checked out some old 17th Century clothing and tried to make Solomon more styled on the puritan clothing of priests and holy men etc.  The small beards seem to be the style of the period even for the English aristocracy. 

The Solomon Kane below this was a quick sketch done with a Biro writing pen for the outlines and shadows and filled in with Parker inks.  The cross idea of the layout was a last minute idea as I thought it suited Solomon's soul.  He looks up to the sky and vows revenge for this heinous crime of mother and  daughter hanged.
