Abbey Road Etch a Sketch

By pikajane
This is a loooong overdue commission for :iconlhmiller:. He requested that I do something Beatles-related, and I appreciate the freedom he gave me in his commission!
This actually took 5 attempts for me to get it to where it is now. I worked on it last night for probably over 3 hours (probably a little more than an hour on the last attempt), and struggled a lot with the proportions. I wanted to fit all 4 members of the band correctly, and keep them in the proper proportion to one another. That is much more difficult said than done.

This is a piece that I definitely should have considered doing on a normal-sized etch a sketch instead. It was very difficult trying to render details, and it was a battle trying to capture their likenesses in their faces.

This is amazing... Or, as the Beatles would probably say, "It's fab!"

Just... Epic.

And as a Beatles fan, everything looks spot-on!

...I know so much about the Beatles, it's like I have no life. /shame
