I really love how that hat merges into the man's doublet. :)

His name's Don Pedro and he's a gentleman mercenary - or at least, he thinks he is! That lady in profile is his mother, Dona Beatriz. And the older man is her husband, Don Diego. The lady in the centre is the mysterious love interest, who always seems to appear at the oddest times but never leaves her name. And the young boy is probably his squire, Manuel, who has a wonderful gift with horses but an equally not-so-wonderful gift for getting everyone annoyed.

What do you think? :P

Excellent composition on this and the added spade up in the corner gives this a certain lighted-hearted feel in a Pirates of the Caribbean kind of may

-Muchas gracias Jesus!

-Grazie Paolo!

-Thanks Claudio!

-Thanks Kendra for your visit and comment!

-I appreciate Craig

-Shuku! I'll say the hat was a last moment addition as I was playing with the shapes :)
As per the character description....I love it!, and coming from you I'm not surprised!

-Thanks Lincoln! The spade was in fact something put there to enhance a certain playful/mystery flavor on the whole thing. Glad you like it!

The gambling establishment was owned by “El Maestro” De Oro Escondido (the man in profile). It was named “The Spade” and it was a famous profitable establishment known throughout the region. Rumor had it that the name had originated from the weapon that “El Maestro” had used to kill his former mining partner Pifaño Soledad. Who could say if these were history or just stories that circulated among the clientele?
Another yarn told would have you believe that Sr. De Oro Escondido’s real name was Pancho Del Ancho Cinturas. Fact ... who could say?
The beautiful women who worked with him were attracted to The Spade by the easy money that could be made just by circulating around the floor.
The main “girl” Lady Tran Sit had recently been making quite a bit of eye contact with a certain “Ojitos” De Peligro ... their midnight rendezvous were not of the romantic kind. No .. they were planning “The Ultimate Gamble”.
