    been lucky enough lately to get some commission work, started another one tonight, been a long time since I painted anything this size!
    I fired up the projector and had the wonderful smell of dead cockroach being cooked by the lamp :) I done a basic sketch and hit the Paynes Grey Createx Illustration paint this time on YUPO as the Blair paper wasn't big enough!

    I’d have loved to see Jimi play live. Mitch Mitchell beat the hell out of those drums, the band were awesome, then you throw Jimi on top. Wow.

    I like what you've done. I would not take it any further. Maybe a bit more contrast here and there but no more detail. I like his hair as it is.
