Cap'n Bill Wheedles: Revamp


Cap'n Bill is a character from L. Frank Baum's Land of Oz.  This is a complete redo of a previous design, which the morbidly curious reader may find here

The idea was basically to start from the ground up and create a more dignified character, still with a goofy edge, but someone you could imagine telling epic tales of his adventures on the High Seas.  Last time, the peg leg was audaciously prominent, but this time is understated and partially obscured.  I hoped to show by this the captain's tendency to play down his own wounds and woes, focusing on the needs of others.
