This deadline was a great opportunity to work on my 3rd assignment for my pikaland course. We had to use a piece from a museum as inspiration. I chose this, from the Denver Art Museum:
I am in love with the colors, and how something about it is so modern even though it was made in the late 1800’s. So I decided to take the color scheme and use it for Elvis.
Step 1 was to draw a basic sketch, using various pictures of The King I found through google image search.
Here is where I am so far. I’m pretty happy with it…I think the face is coming along pretty well, and the hair is sufficiently shiny. Tomorrow I’ll work on his shirt, which will have similar colors to the guy above. And I might add some of that awesome graphic detail into the background, like that black triangle. What do you think?
