YES!!!! FINALLY!!!! The internets have been conspiring against me!!! So, a day late but hey, he knows how to make an entrance right?!? The one and only, Mister Axl Rose! Ashugashugashuga!!!
This - isn't as good a reproduction as the rest of them, I don't know why, maybe because his face is so white in contrast to the black paper. I tried to make it as close to the original as I could but some detail was lost. Still oil pastel.
This is a picture I just finished of Axl Rose, lead singer of Guns N' Roses, the best damn band ever. But heres a little cartoon of him done in markers and pen. Ill prolly do Slash as well in the near future...
Before there was a Marilyn Manson or a Motley Crue or even a Kiss there was this guy...Vincent Furnier...AKA Alice Cooper.Some great tunes and a survivor,and he partied with Salvador Dali and John Lennon,the stories he must have....avid golfer these days but still tours,check [link].
Pastel on Velour.Kind of went with a t shirt graphic look.
This is a 19"x24" drawing of the current day, Robert Plant. This was my 2nd experimentation with conte. It allows me to work on a larger scale than when I'm using my graphite. I find that its not as photo-realistic, but it is more expressive than pencil work.
This is a belated (because I suck!) birthday present for my little Italian buddy ! Happy Birthday girl!
Axl for you, hope you love it!
He's also the next hottie on my list! This picture of Axl is one of those famous pictures of GNR by Ross Halfin and this particular one is on the greatest hits album. I love that smirk he has going on. That's a "In three seconds I'm gonna rip all your clothes off girl, you better be ready..." Hehehe not if I get yours first boy...
ps, deviantart is being weird so I have submitted this again. Something about a corrupted file. Apologies.
Thought I could live in your world
As years all went by
With all the voices I've heard
Something has died
And when you're in need of someone
My heart won't deny you
So many seem so lonely
With no one left to cry to..
- Don't Cry (Alt lyrics)
Axl Rose es uno de los artisas favoritos de mi novia. Hace tiempo que quería regalarle un retrato suyo, y paseando por el ciberespacio me topé con una foto del nuevo viejo Axl (que por cierto a mi novia le resulta más interesante) en un recital de Polonia, con una rosa en la boca. La foto me cerró, y he aquí el resultado.
