Rogue Redcoat by GeneralVyse Rogue Redcoat by GeneralVyse
Hey, apologies to our American cousins, but i wanted to do something with a Redcoat. I had an idea for a little webcomic, novel type thing featuring a redcoat in the Revwar but it never got beyond the idea stage - this is the main character doing some righteous ass kicking (or face hitting?)

Hope you like it, this is one evenings colouring and took 2 to 3 hours.

He's of the 1st footguards, and his opponent is similar to the New Jersey rifles, though they didn't have uniforms like this til 1812???

Anyway, this was more an exercise in drawing than one in accuracy.

Oye mate, those colonist folks made an excuse - instead of going to the open battle they kill your boys in the woods and villages, from any cover. Plus that lobster fashion =) made bad service. It's hardly possible to imagine a better aim.

It's called a re-enactment. That's why we do that. People in the UK do it too. If you want some Continental Uniforms and wish to re-enact the battles of Brandywine Creek, Long Island, or Germantown (Brits won all of those BTW), "Have at it, Hoss" as we say.

Eh no prob, British are better at hand to hand than the militia-man he's wailing on. Only complain I have is I think the bayonet is too short. It should be twice that length. Though I realize it would go beyond the pic if it was longer.

Yes sorry, it went off the paper, and in order to colour it, I had to cut it off with a lack line :(

Glad you like it though, I ought to do some more!

Yes,yes you should do more. And it's alright. Stuff happens when you draw.

For some reason I love the coat of the guy he's smacking up.
