This was a drawing I made of George Harrison in 2012 in my freshman year of high school as a final for an art class. We used a grid to upscale an image onto a bigger sheet of paper. I've gotten better at drawing people since, and especially drawing smoother and more natural looking hair. This is the last "major" piece of artwork I've done other than a painting late last year.

For reference, the imaged this portrait was based off of can be seen on the documentary cover of 'George Harrison: Living in the Material World' (URLs I could find were broken).

You guys are all very good. Best thing I ever did was some nice hand painted Warhammer figures. I still have a couple that I liked but I sold most of the others.

impressive! and a very cool style you have.

edit: looked at some of your other work at the prior page as well. your style reminds me of the work of Anthony Francisco Schepperd.
if you're into animation, then i suggest checking out this video which features his animated art: http://vimeo.com/33415528
and another great music video he's animated: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEYRBTZWu8U

and i presume you know Zdzisław Beksiński. if not, look him up i'd say. could mean some good inspiration! he was fantastic :)

Actually, I have seen the Blockhead music video before but never looked up the artist! It's really cool stuff. And yes, I know of Beksinski. :) He is referenced a lot in some projects I've been working on.

I only have three done, but between that and working at the shop I also got an additional 11 pages of new art I will post once things are done.

I do traditional stuff too. I didnt throw that, but the glaze work is mine. That's what I'm really passionate about tbh, glaze chemistry is just so fascinating.

I'm also convinced my teachers really don't appreciate me doodling and not paying full attention to the class. There are these awkward moments where I see his body stop in front of my desk, but I never look up--either pause or keep colouring. I think this because there are times when he goes, "I know some of you aren't paying attention..." But at least sometimes (maybe) they have relevance to the topic.

I actually do have those, believe it or not. I just never bring them to my classes, because then I think then, my teachers really will tell me to stop...I mean it's really awkward when they keep like...stopping in front of my desk. It's not that I don't pay attention--I do.

I also really like to write my notes in pen, but I think if I ever took the time to sit down and draw like that, then yeah, it'd look a lot nicer than a ballpoint pen and notebook paper.

Or people just like downfragging. Just because a few people may not have appreciated what they heard, doesn't mean you should have entirely removed the link--it shouldn't discourage you from putting up your art/music. Art is a form of expression. Express yourself--people are entitled to their opinions, like what they want, dislike what they want. I'm sure there are people who would have liked to hear your music or come to enjoy it.
