Picasso's Blues: 10^3 Up for Scoring! *emptees*
I've always wanted to mess with the idea of Picasso's Blue-period and the blues. So I was thinking, what if I jazzed up his famous blue-guitarist?
This is just a rough sketch over the top of it right now. But I figure I can give him a pin-stripe suite, tie, Italian shoes, a Gibson half-body, sun glasses, and sweet hat.
First Step today, roughing out the anatomy. I am sticking pretty close to picasso's but altering it where necessary to fit the new items. Started a guitar (a 1959 Gibson 335), got the first step of a pork-pie hat going. Also, rough colors, but they are bound to change.
Started vectoring, added some block color. Been messing around with shading systems.
Lots more shading. Going to move onto the line work soon.
Got a bunch of work done on the guitar. At this point only have the hands, detail work (stitching, buttons, shoes). I want to go back and redo the neck/beard so they feel a bit better and more like the original. Also get a background going.
On a real shirt color, more details, fixed anatomical issues.
