Illustration Friday: Perspective

Hello, all.
Suprisingly, I dont have any pics related to linear perspective... I don't know why, because I love drawing it, and I love teaching it in classes, especially two and three point perspective.
So, what I have are dramatic points of view from a couple of studies that I did for (you guessed it) John Henry.  The first is an attempt at a dramatic rendition, while in the second image, I investigate the possibility of leaving out the face and focusing on the powerful hands of the legendary figure.  Thanks to Marshall Lakes for shooting good references for the first, and my Dad for posing for the second.  I figure that from the average man's perspective, John Henry seemed larger than life.

Have a great week!

Hello, all.
No pics today, just an announcement.
I and my art comrades in the North Carolina Society of Illustrators have a show that is on display now at the Theater Art Galleries in High Point, NC.  We have over 50 pieces on display by 10 different artists and illustrators, including myself, David Gaadt, David Stanley, Kyle Webster, Marshall Lakes, Mark Spangenberg, Austin Harris, Logan York, Ed Fields, and Don Stewart.
The theme is sports, and a wide variety are represented, including football, baseball, golf, rock climbing, horseback riding, and even boxing (my personal favorite).

Would love to see you there.
