Redcoat West Contest by Ramala Redcoat West Contest by Ramala
For NatAsplund's contest! The subject is her amazing webcomic/graphic novel called RedCoat West. If you like history, time travel, and a pinch of humor, check it out here! :iconredcoatwest:

This is HOPEFULLY obviously taken from the famous painting "Napoleon Crossing the Alps" by David, seen HERE. This piece is simply a parody of the image, and not at all intended to equate this character to Napoleon. XD I was inspired by the fact that I wanted to do Jasper on horseback, and I was shocked by the more than passing resemblance. Since the comic has an overarching humorous tone, I was trying to stay in the spirit of that. I hope you like it, Nat!

The tack is a tad creative (aka not correct), because I was trying to do a hybrid between the tack seen in the comic and what I saw in the painting. The proportions may be a little wonky for that reason as well. I wanted everything to match up to a point where the parallel would be obvious. I may mess with this some more, I just wanted it out there. :D
