Viennese Shopkeeper

This is the shopkeeper design that goes with the Josephine design from the previous post. Like little Jo, this one is also a first color pass that isn't final. This guy is the owner of a shop that sells musical instruments in Vienna in the early 1800s. He not only crafts new instruments but also repairs them. He's very dignified (like one of his antique violins) but also very warm and welcoming. I'm thinking of adding some subtle pinstriping to his pants or a pattern to his vest.

Thanks, Candace! I like him so much too that I might actually do a maquette of him in a few weeks.
