This is incredibly gorgeous - I know you probably hear this all the time, but I had to blink back tears of joy at the absolute fabulousness before managing to leave a reply. That jacket is crazy ridiculous - I feel like I could touch it.
Thankyou very much! I'm really pleased this has caused some people some happiness, i was chuffed to bits when i finally finished it, and i love being able to share my work with fellow Bowie fans - 'fan service' i think its called and whatnot lol. I'm extra pleased the jacket came out fine, there were points during shading and detailing where i thought it looked odd somehow...
Absolutely stunning! That's a very young David in a picture I don't think I've seen before, but you are right, he's got adorable puppy-dog eyes! lol... And that jacket is exquisite! I can only imagine how much work must have gone into that!
Great job! And a very happy birthday to Mr. Bowie!
Thankyou for your lovely comment, very kind Gotta love his eyes, especially in puppy-dog mode Yes the jacket took a lot of work, and some considerable pain to my wrist and arm...i'm not doing anymore drawing for a while i think...
Well done......we tend to forget how he looked in the early days when we have adored him through so many phases of his life.......Thx for sharing.......im singing laughing gnome now (look what you did to me)
Thankyou for your comment, and it is true, we do often forget how he looked in his early days...my best friend and family didn't recognise him straight away even though they've seen pictures of him this age before. To be honest this was the last time he looked healthy before he got sorted in the 80s; during his Ziggy Stardust and Station to Station years he frankly looked like a skeleton in my opinion. Shame
But anyway, thanks again, and haha, The Laughing Gnome is an awesome song
OMG, badassary! And that's from one color pencil artist to another pencil artist. I know how much detail work goes into that and you've captured it perfectly! My human portraits aren't that awesome so I stick to animals and nature and such. Don't have anything here but if you want to see my work so you understand that I REALLY understand and don't drop art compliments lightly my shop is [link] just go to the art/prints category. Awesome!
