TOM- Here's another portrait from that promo book. Elvis has probly been one of the hardest to do in terms of getting the likeness down. I thought it would be fairly easy at first, just some dark eyes, a curved up lip, and big hair, but there is alot more to it. He's such a specific looking guy, with such a recognizable face, that one wrong line could really fuck up the whole thing. So i leave it to you to tell me if i've a good job or not. Again, it really does take a few months for me to be able to look at my drawings with a fresh pair of eyes. By the way, this one was done with a #2 brush on typing paper(couldn't get it to transfer on to bristol and keep it true to the original sketch, so i just inked the sketch) And colored in Photoshop. Peace out.
