Just wanted to see how the halo would look, done with a gold Sakura paint pen.
Moving on to the features.
The start of the Chris Cornell portrait. Working with Staedtler Lumocolor permanent pens, and Kurecolor dual tipped pens (for Manga). Love both of these for getting good colour coverage when working on a clear acrylic sheet.
A wee late night preparatory drawing of Chris Cornell, working towards a portrait in permanent pen on a sheet of clear acrylic.
A wee pencil commission I completed a couple of weeks ago.
The man himself with the finished portrait, before I put it together properly, then take it to the framers!
The final piece! Scared to take it to the framers, cause at 4ft x 3ft, it won't be cheap!
The finished background collage! Happy with how it turned out.
Nearly there now! But happy with how it has progressed.
The collage was a lot of hard work. It's very time consuming going through thousands of images to find all the right ones to represent Scott's life. But it came together well.
The background collage getting under way! This has many images of Scott's life, including his family and friends, his career in film and TV, his charity work and his love of football.
The four corners of the background collage, showing Scott's wife, his mum, brother and grandmother.
Just some of Scott's treasured items from some of the TV series and films that he's worked on. Yes, that's a prop finger from the Outlander TV show! It's going to be a very interesting collage!
The figure cut out and stuck together, and placed on the canvas, all ready for the background collage to get started.
The figure looking good with all the parts put together.
Face finished, now to start putting all the component parts of the figure together.
Feeling much better about this newest version of the face.
Torso finished, just got to work on the newest version of the face.
