Sebastiao O Guardado
was am image based on a snapshot of a attendee of an SCA (Society of Creative Anachronism, or Medieval Society) event. As with The Man With a Feathered Hat,
this painting was created with commissioned portraits in mind, focusing on the likeness of the character, as shown in the original photo below. The red chair was added to the image, and the colour of the costume changed to blue then embellished with gold accents and designs.
