The King of Pop WIP

Hi all,

I've been working on this pic all day and night. His hair is driving me bonkers, moreso than the rhinestones of his glove.
Who's the King? Michael Jackson.
A4, Derwent & Faber-Castell pencils.

Thanks - even for an unfinished piece like this I'd love to think that anyone who takes a look at the drawing can remember at least one of his songs. Michael is amazing, he's the embodiment of the Eighties. I'm trying to get my eleven-year-old niece into to the classics along with Madonna and Bon Jovi.

This is wonderful. I love the energy you have depicted with the drops of perspiration.

Re: The King of Pop WIP

Boy there is a lot to like with this portrait.

I like how you have captured the shadows of the hair and even the eyelashes upon his face.
I like the shiny surfaces of the glove and mic.
I like the beads of perspiration
I like the soft edge of the jacket receding into the background.
I like the touch of green in the skin shadows.
I like the intense lighting of the lower lip and even the halo around the microphone.

Perfect.

Richard

I've made a little bit of progress, but I have this bad habit of leaving drawings on the brink of being finished on the premise that "I'll get back to it, I just need to take a small break..." I've already almost finished another drawing on Michael Jackson, yet begun working on another one. It's an neverending cycle of things I need to finish.
