My submission for the seventh day of the Newbie Artist Training Grounds II.
This probably took anywhere from 3 - 5 hours to make. I was originally going to make this entire piece in Photoshop, but realized that it would take too long to hand it in for today. I will probably return to this drawing and recreate it in Photoshop at a later time.
Also, much of the detail in the drawing has been lost in scanning.
Do you recognize these two figures? If not, the one on the left is Robert McNamara and the one on the right is John F. Kennedy. The Cuban Missile Crisis was a period within the Cold War where much of the world nearly faced a nuclear war. Here, John F. Kennedy and Robert McNamara are examining several images and are discussing on what actions they should take to resolve this crisis.[link]
