Jimi Hendrix by VegemiteGangsta Jimi Hendrix by VegemiteGangsta
This Drawing of Jimi took 30-40 hours to complete. I'm happy with the end result.. it could be better I rushed the Fret board a bit so it's pretty rough.. but I've already spent too much time on it and I'm a little over it...

This drawing was a little tougher than others i have done due to the fact that the reference photo was quite small and blurred, so I had to guess some of the details...

Enjoy

Thanks for your comments. I think your portraits are very good also.. Fave'd "MINE" drawing, it looks realistic.
I use staedtler mars lumograph 8b pencil for the black in the jimi pic. I also paint some with oil paint, so that gives a really dark black. From the pics in your gallery it looks like you have figured it out anyway. Keep on drawing :D
