I made another version of this one because I thought the original one was lacking. For a new perspective, I put Jack in (goatee and specs) to help Rodger and his friend along the path. (Please click for big)
The original version: Had a bit of fun with this one. Originally the rider was going to be the devil; but I cut his tail off.
So I went a different way. I think this would be a fine 'ad' for a Bank that I know. Consequently I went for a bit of 'realism'.......
The man is all dressed up in his finery, he has a confident stare; but something, somewhere is lacking. Luckily his donkey, whose name is Rodger, knows the way over the rocky ground ahead.
Or does he.....? Only time will tell.
Thanks for all the comments on this one. I reduced the pecs (thanks Ces) and sat the pointy rocks better in the landscape...
