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

5h - 8B Staedtler mars lumograph pencils

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

With the Internet your musical talent means you can learn. All you have to do is look up a cover song like, Purple Haze and they will show you how to play it. Believe it Works?
Take good care my friend. :)

All you need is an instrument that you like.
Then you need determination?( or the will to learn ).
With time, depending on your ability. It will be come easier, with a lot of practice.
It sounds easy, but it's All up to you. Take good care my friend, from Juan. :handshake:
I'm sure, You can do it?
