To be honest ...at first glance I didn't like the paint job, but the more I studied it the more interesting it became. Rembrandt was a master of light and shadow that usually lite his subjects from the top left side. Given the limitation of the miniatures medium (lack of background to force contrast) I would have liked to see more contrast on the model (darker peripheral areas like the feet, tail and even the bottom of the club and a sparse few some tiney tiny points of highlight smattered across the head, on the edge of the shield, and top of the bow).

 

Thanks for sharing and injecting some Dutch Master Magic into the conversation.

 

"Rembrandt goes so deep into the mysterious that he says things for which there are no words in any language. It is with justice that they call Rembrandt—magician—that's no easy occupation." - Vincent van Gogh

the light scheme I used on the shield guy was a lot more careful than the archer - but I see what you mean, even there the feet could be darker and the shield brighter. 

and the leg under the club is bugging me now. 

Rembrandt changed styles over his life and I was going for his middle period, which used less contrast than late or early.
