Egyptian Princess

Graphite and oil Original size 24x36 2003 Alex Ledante

This is a study of the Egyptian Princess that I copied off a study of Troutman's, who in turn copied it off Frazetta. Art three times removed? Would it even be a relative of mine if it were a person?

This was my first attempt at using Charles White's scumble technique, as taught by his disciple, Stan Wilson. Yet, if I copied the subject matter and used someone else's technique, can I still call this original art? Sure I can!
