Hey everyone! I'm working on this project and have been for a week or so...the concept came to me while messing around with paint and listening to the Kpop band BTS. I thought, hmm, a lot of them have colorful hair...what if I did limited-palette portraits of each of them and made their hair like nebulas with stars in them?
The result so far...
Jimin, in a sort of deep purple-blue:
Next up will be Suga, in viridian.
Here's the lineart for him:
I'm working in very cheap crappy watercolors (Artist's Loft tubes, 12pack that was $5 USD), but getting some half-decent results, so we'll see.
line work was done with a Nikko G-pen nib with Dr PH Martin's Black Star india ink in Matte.
Planned colors for the other portraits (not a finalized list):
Suga - Viridian
Jin - Pink
V - Vermillion
RM - Purple
Jungkook - Burnt Sienna
J-Hope - Crimson
I chose BTS because I love their music, but I also honestly think each of them are really beautiful human beings, and wanted to capture their aesthetic in paint.
Any other BTS fans here?
