Dean Cornwell War Bond Poster

Here's a preliminary charcoal drawing and finished image by Dean Cornwell for a war bond poster. At this stage of his career, Cornwell was not using photography for reference, and was doing his planning from models and studies, combined with his imagination. The authority that he brings to the design of the image, right down to the folds of the shirt, really carries over into the final picture.
Edit: Coincidentally, Charley Parker of Lines and Colors posted about the same painting.
