I finally got my Ghostface Killah painting to a point where I'm comfortable showing it to people and calling it done. i enjoyed painting this one even though the leather drove me nuts. gonna go do more sketching, hopefully SLAUGHTERHOUSE will be my next project.

for those not familiar with the music, this Ironman,aka Tony Stark, aka Ghostdini, aka wizard of poetry,aka pretty Toney aka Tonetana, better known as Ghostface Killah. Ghostface is one of the more prominent members of the Wu Tang Clan and one of my favorite musicians ever.The guy simply has a style all his own. wordplay, stories, flow, ghost has it all.I actually had the pleasure of meeting Ghost in a Holiday Inn about a year ago and all i can say is Ghost is real. Anyway ive been on a big Wu Tang kick lately so i decided to do a sketch of Ironman himself. for anybody who has never heard Ghostface, check the link below. this is one of the greatest songs ever written. no matter where you are from, this song touches you

pretty straight forward on this post. some people have asked to see what some of my stuff looks like as its developed so i decided to throw up the early stages of my current painting of Robert Di Nero. this is just the block in stage with a little extra attention paid to the eyes and mouth. the original sketch is posted below if you wanna see how it started.
