Reference Photos

Here are are few of the reference photos I've been given to work with. Many of the pictures I have are old low resolution photos from post cards, which were then blown up. Because of this, the images do not explain much in terms of detail. They are mostly good for gesture, stance and the general masses of the figure. Because many of the postcards available were printed in the early 1900s, the color in the photos was painted on, distorting detail even more when blown up. Also, some of the postcards are not photos at all, but illustrations of the monument (which can be useful in other aspects because the drawing uses line to explain form that may not be readable in photos!)
