THE EMPEROR by Wieringo THE EMPEROR by Wieringo
There's no real rhyme or reason behind this sketch... I just had a fleeting sense of one of those arrogant emperor-types who also take on the mantle of 'grand military leader'. So I sketched this piece up from that impression....

Great picture!

But I compare an Emperor (Kaiser) more with a noble and wise man leading his fatherland
to the best. There were bad and good ones in history.

You captured the 'self-enlightened despot' quite nicely!

I regret that I could not give praise while you were alive. May you find next what would most benefit your soul, whatever that may be. The more I think on death the less I am sure what it means, but I hope I will come to find it is not to be feared. Whether you wanted rest or a new life, I hope it is yours. From what I can tell, you were an inspiration to many and a terrible loss at such a young age.

The pencils are wonderfully neat. Are those mechanical pencils? I love the texture-so hard and scratchy, but was that just an effect of the scan?

Nice. Reminds me of a character John Byrne might have drawn. I really like the dog.
