Skeleton Within Reference.

This is the image I am using for my project titled “Skeleton Within”.  In this project I will portray napoleon with his skeleton exposed through his skin and his clothing.  I have always had a fascination with Napoleon and thought it would be interesting to paint someone that I admire.

The picture I am using as a reference was obtained from:

Another interesting figure I’m interested in drawing is James Dean.  I like the aesthetic of him smoking and could make an interesting effect showing smoke in his lungs.
