These two pictures, are something I did one day I didn’t really have an agenda.
Ink and paper always get my juices going.
This native American, is done with a picture I found in Vanity fair as reference.
I was inspired by a story about Napoleon and one of his most trusted marshals and cavalry officer Murat.
According to history a dashing personality on the battle field as well as in the ballrooms of Paris.
Also a key figure in many of Napoleons battles.
I just pencilled everything first as usual, and then went over it with an ink pen for the line work, rubbed down the left over pencil stuff, and slabbed the rest with an Nr. 12 brush and bottled Indian ink.
