A commissioned portrait of the late, great reggae star. This was done in pencil on paper and a limited number of prints were sold.
Wow, I really like how you did the mouth and the borders of the shirt.
Thanks. I can hardly remember what I used for reference but I think it was an album cover. I haven't done one of these types of portraits for about 28 years. Man, I am old!
The mouth is amazing. The eyes are weird.
Heh. Well he did smoke a lot of dope! Could be my drawing though too. I should mention I did this over 25 years ago!
Dude, that`s amazing I thought it was a photo at first.
Thanks, man. I haven't done anything in this style for a very long time. I guess it got to the point where, as you mentioned, people thought it was a photo anyway so I decided I'd stick to my cartooning instead.
