Georges Batroc was born in Marseille, France, and served in the French Foreign Legion. He is a French costumed mercenary who specializes in savate (also known as "La Boxe Française"), a form of kickboxing. Although he has primarily appeared in the pages of Captain America, he has also faced off against the Punisher, Spider-Man, Deadpool, Hawkeye, Iron Fist, and Gambit. Batroc has occasionally led his own team, "Batroc's Brigade", whose membership has changed over time. The group has primarily fought Captain America.

I've been getting into making classic marvel characters. I wanted to make them as close to the original drawing as possible. I am aware that every marvel character has been re-imagined in one way or the other on paper. I hope you guys like this one. I used golden yellow, sunburst yellow, liche purple, tentacle pink, purple wash, organge wash, chaos black, bronzed flesh. Using a varied array of brushing techniques, I was able to get a solid paint job down. I love flat basic colors, however if I could redo every figure, I would add more depth into the paint jobs, I'm sure you all agree. thanks for stopping by.

Wow, thanks for all the wicked comments. These old characters are really fun to make. they don't require crazy ammounts of sculpey either. I am a big vintage fan and love learning about these guys from my dads time. The pictures turned out great, I need to invest in a tripod tho, haha. Always appreciate the comments, its very theraputic.
