I’ve been trying a few classical studies lately to brush up on my Photoshop blending.
Here’s a section of Jacques-Louis David’s "Napoleon Crossing the Alps". Leaving it at this stage because it was taking longer than I’d hoped for just a study.

Finished! …Sort of.
I’d have liked to finish off the entire pose, but this wasn’t something I’d considered when drawing up the rough sketch. Oh well!
