Squeezing in my take on this popular fellow before Russel Crowe's incarnation hits the silver screens so to speak
This is the current CHOW topic btw.
Didn't have any references (except for the bird) but I realized that my figures benefit hugely from sketching them out first which I usually don't do... (compare the first horrible WIP image oO)
It's funny, but I only realized later that this bird is actually called a 'robin' in english. Maybe my subconscious was at work
Not sure how long it took, something around 8h I think...
