Thought you might see what I'm working on besides that Buffalo Soldier. This ought to be a really nice piece once it's fleshed out. The arm is attached using the paper method so I can remove it later and paint the beaded blanket strip. I really like the skull...spent the who afternoon on it yesterday and even went over to the Gallery and brought over the real one hanging there to make sure I got the detail right. The rifle is a Henry Yellow Boy but you'd never know it as the lever action is hidden by the blanket. His chest will be covered with a breastplate and there will be lots of beading on his shirt, leggings and moccasins. The mount is a piece of stone I picked up in South Dakota a couple years ago and to get it level for the wooden base I used some Bondo which I'll paint.
Hope you like him. One more photo in the Gallery.
