So, I took my recent “quick digital drawing of three things” fiverr gig a little out of control
yesterday. As you may or may not know I am running a limited time only gig over at fiverr where I will draw a web resolution image if you give me 3 things (see twitter challenge entry’s). Looking for 1. A person (historical figure) 2. An object, and 3. An adjetive.
Anyway, I was given “Jerry Garcia, Guitar, and Inspirational” as the paramaters. I
created a quick sketch, and started blocking in colors…and then I just didn’t stop. The line drawing looked good and all but I just kept going. Note, I dont normally put this much into the fiverr gig …the point of the gig is to do some illustrations as “sketches” or concepts or whatever, that I normally would not think to do – all the time giving the requestor something cool.
I hope you enjoy some of the photos of the progression to show how I work. I normally dont post the stages of stuff so let me know if you enjoy this or would rather just see me get to the point! Took most of the afternoon and went back to it in the evening to put final tweaks on.
I really enjoyed this one. I think I am going to do more of a music series sort of thing. Next up to bat, Hank Williams. (sr).
And the final version, below. Because I have received a few questions about this lately I want to be clear on how I view sharing / forwarding, tweeting, whatever-ing some of the artwork I create. I love it when folks share stuff, and Im honored when anyone thinks my comic or illustration is worth sharing. As with anything posted here -unless specifically expressed otherwise please feel free to share it however you want for non commercial purposes. I just ask that you give credit and link back to me.
