Old Gabe

I'm still in the process of clearing heads off the workbench so with this one I thought it would be a reasonable representation of the Mountain Man Jim Bridger, or Old Gabe as he was known.   Naturally, a little artistic licence will be used to make the figure more interesting but that's okay, at least I think it is.  There's nothing wrong with making a fella better looking that he actually was. 

Several months ago I bought a Mountain Man's blanket capote and this will give me a chance to use it as a reference.  So, let's see if he turns out as nice as I think he will.

Comments welcome as always.
