All the squares go home!


After flipping through my old Mojo magazines I decided I had to draw Sly.You’ll see if you watch the video that I used two different kinds of paper, not something I usually do.  I wanted to try and make this one kind of psychedelic and trippy with the colors, though it kind of came out the same as all my other ones do in the end. Anyway, I started on a porous paper to get some cool bleeds, but that paper wouldn’t allow for much detail without bleeding so I pasted the good parts onto some hotpress watercolor paper. Normally for a deadline I would do this in photoshop but since these are just for fun, I try to make finished originals. The hotpress paper had my sketch printed on it at about 10%. My brother did the video for me.
Oooh, and I know Sly played the keyboard more often, but I had some great reference of him in this white suit with the custom guitar.

  7. Thank you Lola and Marta! This one was probably an hour and a half tops, including the sketch. I always wanted a timer for certain pieces...
