Give the Drummer Some...

for those of you who dont recognize, this is the man simply known as ?uestlove. he is without a doubt one of the best drummers walking planet earth and a key part of what is essentially the greatest hip hop "band" of all time, the ROOTS. had a lot of fun trying some different stuff with this one. i wanted to see if i could get it to look more like a traditional painting than a digital one. i think i achieved that in some ways, but it could still be improved. anyway this was just a fun experiment, hopefully i have some more stuff to show sooner than later. peace

Progress with Blade

At least once a year i go back and look at some of my earlier work and i re-do the piece just as a way to see what ive learned and how far ive come. this is about the 4th time ive done this and its something im gonna try and keep going. the first piece here is one i did about 3 years ago now. In fact this was actually the first caricature i ever painted. the latter is my take on the same image 3 years later plus 3 years of experience and knowledge. neither are perfect, but i can definitely see a lot of improvement and progression when i compare the two. hopefully i can continue to grow and learn as an artist and these paintings will get better and better. hopefully i will post some more stuff soon, peace.
