Uncle Sam Sketch

Just a quick sketch I did to get the feel of the famous image by James Montgomery Flag. I don’t wanna spill the beans just yet, but let it suffice to say that I needed to understand how this image was ‘assembled’, and I think that I did that. This sketch ‘came up short’ on a couple of things (not the least of which is the age of Uncle Sam – he’s too youthful), but I learned a lot and I don’t think that it’s too shabby for 15 minutes of sketch work. Tomorrow / later today I will be creating my own version. I’ll post the results here later.
