Figure and Motion, Skeleton Within, Reference Picture
For my Skeleton Within project I have decided to draw the skeleton within the picture “The Kissing Sailor” by Alfred Eisenstaedt. This picture was taken on V-J Day on August 14, 1945 in Times Square New York City.
I have decided to do this image because I wanted a romantic couple scene to draw and while searching artists such as Michelangelo and Da Vinci I found drawings of women only or of multiple people when I wanted a couple in my image. This original image is in black and white but I have also included an image of the sculpture of this picture to understand the color of the people.
