I have started a new commission piece. It will be a horse portrait with a barrel racer below it on a 16x20 board. This is going to be a challenge for me, I have never done a person or some of the textures, but I think that I can pull it off. Here are a couple of starting pics, sorry about the bad quality phone pics.

I have the horse and rider blocked in. Still have to adjust the contrast in some areas but I have the general shapes in.

I like the way you overlap the images. Much better than 2 separate ones. Good job

Nice piece Greg. I like the tension between the passive portrait and the action shot.

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/28-Sep-2014/135983-image.jpg I am calling this one done unless my client wants something changed. Haven't signed or sprayed it yet until they say if they are happy or not.
