like i said...i'll color this later.

later seems to be now.

before you go all "omgwtfkthxbye...why did you eff up the teeth so badly"...well...what can i say? Lil Flip obviously prefers metal over natural teeth. and platinum (or silver...dunno) is kinda hard to color. for me x_x. never did that...and i don't think i'll ever do it again.

then there's the bracelet...which was a major pain in the...you know where.

so...SAY "NO" TO BLING BLING! 'kay?

anyway...he's a kick ass artist and i can't wait to lay my hands on his new album.
and i...i am 100% rusty. sorry for that...

This piece may actually make me start to like Flip. Don't like him as an artist, but you are done a marvelous job on this piece. That bracelet is insane!!!! GREAT work. The hard work and time you put into it are obvious and appreciated!!

Amazing work! I've yet to see a better vector for Lil Flip in my life! This rendition is so true to his life counterpart it's scary! Good job!

Man. I so gotta learn how to use Illustrator so I can pull off some crazy vectors. I just got a tablet like, a week and a half ago, and I need to throw down. This is wicked, though.

i need to learn illustrator, too, actually...
it's a pain in the ass (for me) :lol:

anyway...thank you!

Loving the colour scheme and, again, the detailed shading that makes it seem real. The style is distinctly julistic :lol:
D: And contrary to what you said I reckon you had a pretty damn good stab at those teeth. And the bling is blingalicious! =p looks fucking real, mate.
taw's avatar
gotta respect the bling :D

i still dislike the teeth tho...cause they're lacking a lot of detail (he has like...rubins or something in 'em too) but hell...again...to lazy to change 'em :lol:

thankies hun :hug:
