French Hussar 1790's Painted!

I really like how this one turned out overall. From pose to paint, this has to be one of my favorite projects. I used HISTORIE & COLLECTIONS book FRENCH HUSSARS 1. From the "Ancien Regime" to the Empire. Painted with acrylics. You'll notice the mane and tail are mad from frayed embroidery thread. A trick I got from Greg DiFranco. Time consuming, but impressive when finished. I'll do an SBS on a future project using this material/medium.
