Portrait Of Elvis by Chris Oatley

This is 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

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…

Those brushstrokes and those values though! This is gorgeous!

Oats you definitely captured the likeness. Moreover, the design of your values and obvious attention to structure in your underdrawing are blowing my mind in this one. Painting the hair as a mass with form rather than a bunch of strings put together gives that real "hair-iness" hehe...for lack of a better term.
