The Steadfast Tin Soldier

Lord Baltimore from the Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden novel and comic book series.

I was trying to replicate the look of the old staged soldier portraits from the early 1900s. Those photos are super strange. They would always have some sort of pastoral painted backdrop, as if wars were fought in a lovely wooded park. So I thought it would be funny to juxtapose that with Baltimore's rough appearance.

For anyone that hasn't read the book "Baltimore; or The Steadfast Tin Solider and the Vampire," I recommend it.
