LRDG Captain by anderpeich LRDG Captain by anderpeich
Officer of the Long Range Desert Group messing around in Rommel's backyard. Of course he must look like David Niven!
Photoshop CS3.

EDIT: I wasn't happy at all with his right hand, couldn`t make the grab properly, so i changed it into an aristocratic, small finger raised, cigar holding hand. I think it looks better this way.

So, you did do a David Niven. His missions were in Europe not in North Africa, however, unless I haven't read about it (?)

If I may offer some critique on the historical aspect, the webbing you've drawn is standard '37 Pattern and should be light tan. The holster should have a tubular section for the barrel of the pistol to fit in, as per the one on the right here; [link]

Otherwise very nice composition indeed!

LRDG used pretty much what they liked, as do special forces today. Maybe a Very pistol (flare) on his hip?
