From my sketchbook: Kublai Khan, from the Netflix Mini-Series, Marco Polo

Did you see the Netflix mini-series, Marco Polo?  I enjoy sketching characters from costume dramas with elaborate, ornate costumes. Kublai Khan, played by Benedict Wong, was such a character. His costume was among the most complex and detailed that I have seen in any film. Unfortunately, 72 dots per inch doesn't translate well onto the screen. Much of the detail is lost. But Wong's character was fun to sketch.

Have you seen my other blog, The Trowbridge Chronicles?
