For Queen And Country


This is an alternate history royal marine commando, so liberties have been taken with the uniform. Sean Bean was the inspiration for the face. The idea was to come up with someone who looked unsinkable, confident and charming. I'd also like to take a moment and thank the people who have stopped by with a kind word and praise. It is much appreciated.

Man this is utterly amazing work. I have nearly finished writing this World War Two/Sci-Fi film script and this character is ridiculously close to what I imagined. Would love to send you a copy and see what you could draw from it. I trawl around sites like this looking for writing inspiration. I could write so many scripts based on your characters.

Brilliant...don't stop until your six feet under.

Beautiful work, very well done! I recognized Sean Bean even before I read the description :)

P.S. I've just discovered this blog for myself and I'm so subscribing to it.
