done for art portfolio.

my. favorite. piece. ever. i'm really satisfied how this turned out. i'm way proud of it.

it's jimi hendrix, if you didn't know.

i think my favorite part of this piece is the smoke. i was worried of how i was going to do it, but i think it looks good.

done in pencil on ridged paper.

You know, I bet if he knew he was gonna die of drugs, he'd still do them. But that's cool, cuz it's Jimi Hendrix.

By the way, what's your favorite Hendrix song?

hi, this is boy from myspace who called you a pretty nerd.
I like this, alot, the forms are really neat. actually I like how you deal with forms in general, it has a very solid but sort of... I dunno, ethereal feel to it.

very nice. i dig the lips a lot. If you brought in some darker values to tighten some areas up a bit it would really make this top notch.
