Illustration Friday - Help

Cover for Tabletalk magazine. Here is a brief description of the process. I started off with 3 different pencil sketches, got approval, took reference photos, created tight pencil, transferred to illustration board, painted main shapes in oils, scanned in, added other details and color adjustments in Photoshop, sent for approval, client loved it, printed on cover.

US Soldier Reading Tabletalk
Then after all that how cool is it to see your work being scene by brave US soldiers in Iraq. This was back in 2003. If I could show you his face he is smiling in the photo. I feel I HELPED this soldier that day. I am grateful to do so.
