I didn't finish this one, but I thought it would be appropriate for this week's subject. A few months back, I posted a different John Henry pic for the word "Legendary". This time, I thought that this embodied Strong.
This is the first stage of my technique. I will add an oil wash next, then a layer of colored pencil last. I still have some adjustments to make to the image itself (adding more rock fragments and other details), but I am pretty much done with this stage.
Have a great week.
