(WIP 1) Italian Horseman, 14th Century

Happy New Year !

Starting the year with a subject from a different period. 

This project is for a 14th Century Italian Horseman. Outfitted in chainmail and decorated cuir-bouilli (hardened leather), mace and helmet in hand, this is a veteran from the famed Compagnia di San Giorgio (Company of Saint George, name of mercenary company in 14th century)

For this face, I went with a slightly reddish tone to bring out the ferocity of this battle hardened horseman.

Update: Included a recent WIP photo of the chainmail and cuir-bouilli. Trying to achieve a gold like effect on the branch like motif with non metallic colors.
