This is the original sketch done for the client. If you know about flying planes (which I do not), you will know that I am 'crashing' the plane - oops! Also, the client did not like this particular pose of his father. So, back to the drawing board.
This is the final sketch. The client loved this one of his father and the plane will not crash and burn (which is a plus)! The plane needed to come down a little in angle and he wanted it smaller. Also, he wanted the cockpit and the clothing to be somewhat less detailed. This entire commission was done over the Internet. I sent update photos and shipped the painting when finished.
