So ive been battling and cursing through the stages of his face....which is the hardest part of the entire godamn painting! But... its coming together i think... can anyone tell me if it looks like him? can i move on? haha... i want to get to the fun parts which will be the smoke coming from the spliff and the fishies should be fun too. Once i get past the hardships of painting his face it will be all easy and fun after that. I also need to put in some highlights into his hair... that will make shit pop! anyway thats all.. im gonna go back to painting. Might post some more later tonight. PEACE!

Biggs Paints Hendrix!

So ive been commissioned to do a series of 8 paintings of one of the greatest guitarist in history, Jimi Hendrix. I got to learn a little bit about him and ive been doing a lot of research and picture finding. Anyway... Im going to start posting progress shots of the whole painting process, which I never do... So this is an experiment. The first painting ive decided to do was inspired by an interview with him asking where he got the inspiration to write "Purple Haze". He went on to say that most of his songs are based on dreams. Purple Haze was written after he had a dream he was walking around underwater. Sounded pretty cool and trippy so i decided to go on that. :) so here we go.... this is the first few hours of work. Im not fond of acrylic but i really want to do touchups and highlights with my airbrush in the end... anyway check out the pictures... this should be a fun project.
