The Native by ronmonroe The Native by ronmonroe
I have been looking for awhile now for a reference photo of a Native American. I originally wanted to find an image with the full headdress but I kept coming back to this reference. I felt compelled to draw it. So... here it is.
I 'm not sure who was the original photographer. Reference found on Google images:[link]

Thanks to ~bigmagnet [link] for some information on the native in this drawing. The photographer for the reference was Edward Curtis. The Native was named Two Strike. He was a Lakota chief that got his name by knocking two men of their horse in battle. Here is a link with more info on Two Strike. [link]

Tools: Fiber Castell srt pens on smooth bristol

Here are some Wip's if you're interested:

Another "smashing" portrait, as a Brit might say.  Great details.  :iconenglishrobinplz:
