Napoleon Crossing the Alps, in Neon

Another class assignment for my Adobe Illustrator class as a tracing exercise, made around November 2016.

I originally wanted to colour Napoleon and his horse in realistic colours (the colours as featured were originally placeholders), but I really liked the look of this guy as is.

Really like how this guy turned out- he’s looking so rad!

And for comparison to the original:

Tracing the background would have taken up far too much of my time, so I opted for the circle.

I’m thinking these could make fantastic little prints or postcards- maybe buttons! I haven’t decided yet. If you have any ideas, let me know!
