- Le Petit Caporal - by LeSoldatMort - Le Petit Caporal - by LeSoldatMort
"Le petit caporal" - nickname of Bonaparte and reason why most of people think that he wasn't much tall. The word "petit" means small, but it can also mean "dear" or "our". Seems like his soldiers really appreciated his command, hm? ;3


Well, well... He deserves normal portrait painting in my gallery finally. :heart:
It was supposed to be speedpaint first, but it took me about 12 hours to finish xD silly me.

I'm kind of pround of it. [:

The nickname in portuguese would be cabozinho de esquadra.Even thought it may seem offensive ( as bad or small ) it may also mean appreciation.And don´t worry,I know he wasn´t small!;)

lovely work! I remember reading that Napoleon was about 5' 3", so i suppose it all depends on what you consider short...

You have captured and rendered him in a wonderful way. :)

I like how the closer part of the painting seems out of focus, like it really would be. The sky is great too. ^^ Is he thinking anything particular? When I look closely at his face it seems to be of quiet self-satisfaction, but I could be easily wrong.

If he is thinking any particular? Hmm, maybe the battle plan or he has this face just because the sun is shining to his eyes haha XD it's up to you.

I really like this, especiallt eh the background and the shading of the face, and I like his stare, it's like he's really paying attention to a battle going on.
