I've based him up as though he is charging up a shingle beach on a raid, sword and pistol at the ready, and bagpipes and longbow slung over his back. I've even added some washed-up kelp attached to its holdfast to give it that storm-wracked shore look.
OK, so my tardiness has cost me a few points, but once I'd started, I was committed to getting Mad Jack into this year's Challenge. He's too magnificent a character not to include in a Challenge themed around risk takers and gamblers!
What's next? Who knows?!
A brilliant figure of an iconic risk taker, Ev. As you say, even Hollywood might struggle with how to portray this character, he's just so over-the-top. I really like how you've created the impression that he's storming a shale beach and the tartan on his bagpipes is very eye-catching with that vibrant blue check (is it a historical pattern?). I'm glad you stuck with it so we could see him here in all his longbow'ed/bagpip'ed/claymored glory.
