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.

Killer piece. The pose is on point, you definitely nailed the feel of arrogance from him. The dog has that I'll bite your leg off feel of protection. Great work.

"I'm the very model of a modern major general..." That's all I have in my head after seeing this. Nice job on the sketch.
