This was my first assignment, which had me pretty excited!
All members of the band have always been a great fan of Jimi Hendrix and rock 'n roll music. This is probably why I chose to paint not only the great Jimi Hendrix (November 27, 1942 – September 18, 1970) , but also Elvis Presley (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977). Both icons ultimately belong to the greatest of all time.
This assignment turned out to be a retro/clip art style (using oilpaint), conclusively due to the charcoal sketches. It took me about 25 hours to finish.
And luckily, they were very happy with the result!
Oh, and I apologize upfront, I lost the original picture of the Jimi Hendrix painting.
But I'm guessing you all know what he looked like!
