DETAIL: Portrait Of Elvis by Chris Oatley by ChrisOatley DETAIL: Portrait Of Elvis by Chris Oatley by ChrisOatley
This is a detail of the second demo for my "How To Paint Stylized Hair" tutorial series which is a part of my digital painting course called The Magic Box

See the full painting here: Portrait Of Elvis by Chris Oatley

During the last half of 2014 I have committed to attempting to paint the hardest subjects I can think of. ...which includes pop icons. They're particularly challenging because they are so familiar to all of us.

So far, this series includes Jimi Hendrix and Marilyn Monroe (which I'll post here in the coming weeks).

Although challenging, I'm really happy with how this one turned out.

The brushes I used for this painting will soon be available on my website…

I like the large brushstrokes as well Clap   Yea hair sucks and painting wrinkles on clothes is usually the one that annoys me lol.
