The Chief's New Blanket - Painted

This one really turned out great!  I really like the color selection as they balance each other out just right.  I decided to use the face of the Peace Medal instead of the back and I used the medal issued by President Van Buren in 1837 as a guide. It makes a really nice detail.  As you can see I also changed the base which looks a lot better than the round one used earlier.  Once the brass nameplate is in place it should look pretty snappy.
Hope you like him.  There's a couple more photos in the Gallery and your comments are always welcome.


  1. Reallt vibrant colors on him...he just "pops" out at you. I like him a lot, and the detail, as usual, is wonderful. Will watch along on the Indian woman video, should be interesting and hopefully we can lean some new techniques. Great job!

  2. Like the change you did to the base too. Got another "winner" there.

  3. Yep, I agree too that the flat base is more complementary to the flat front of the carving than the round base. looks good!
