Christopher Lambery plays Connor Macleod in my favorable sci-fi/action movie - Highlander.

For those who are unfamiliar (shame on you!) its about immortal people who live among us, who can only die by losing their head. When one immortal is able to kill another, he earns his power and wisdom.

here's the best ref pic for Connor i could find, taken from the movie soundtrack clip ("Its a kind of magic"/Queen).

Connor appear through this movie with a robe in order to conceal his sword and maybe add to his mysterius look. Prehaps i will add his sword when/if ill finish him.

i decided to start with his body, which will probably be easier for me to do than his face 1000+ trigs so far:

crits will be much appriciated!

Great start. I'll be watching your technique for that coat, and how it overlaps the legs. My character for the game art challenge also has an overhanging shirt-tail. Nice job.
