Cover Illustration: The Citizen L.A. - Nov. 2008 Issue
Cover - L.A. Citizen - Nov. 2008
One of the essential beauties of Joe Rosenthals Pulitzer Prize winning photograph
is that the soldiers are posed facing away from camera thus making them "Everymen" for the Allies. Because of this, as I worked with their Art Director on the initial concept, she was concerned that my characters would not be identifiable as the recognizable individuals that they are with this pose.
At our next meeting, when I showed her how I could flip and adjust the iconic pose, with this rough made in Lightwave...
I got the Greenlight for this cover illustration ASAP!!!
A 3D model I made in Lightwave just for these pieces.
All three versions here have been shown in Los Angeles

This Lightwave model was created for this piece.
It functions well as a cell shaded model as well as photo realistically.
The piece below has the "2 Sided Facade" version of the model.
A photograph of LA POPULAR, an appliance store in Los Angeles.
I've altered it with Lightwave...
And altered it yet again for one of my characters..
