Default Patriot Series, Irish Style

had the idea to do this set about this time last year, and im just now getting it finished.

Basically modelled on Stevens' series of the same name.

I've stuck to the same materials for the most part, but changed the colors, and in one case used embossed tinsel.

rough around the edges here and there.

Eire (modelled on America)

Connemara (Modelled on Casablanca)

Michael Collins (modelled on Gen MacArthur)

Saorise (Modelled on Victory)
Click the image to open in full size.

I'm gonna retie them all with consistent coloring (hackles on Saoirse are different from the rest), smoother bodies etc.

Basically a trial run that turned out pretty well.

More amazing stuff from you Eunan! Those are absolutely beautiful. I wish I had 1/2 the skills you've got.

These are truly imaginative; original works and well done!
