Highlander Caricature, AWI

My latest is a Highlander caricature from the AWI. It was inspired by Tom Meyer's recent caricature of a Napoleonic Highlander.

The head, from Mig, had character but not enough for what I wanted so I decided to add features I thought "looked" Scottish. I like the tough guy chin
and stiff lip, goofy ears with some bushy eyebrows. I wanted features that resembled a couple of my favorite British film actors, Jack Watson and Harry Andrews.

I wanted the painting simple. The tartan is generic as is the jacket and diced cap. The fleshtones I wanted muted, not too much highlight or shadow but cartoonish.

I like the "clean" colors you used.
The colors makes it stand out like a caricature.
