My favorite lefty, Jimi Hendrix. Part of the My Guitar Hero series I have been working on. I orginally planned to do the illustration in full color, but after I had worked out the grayscale on his face I loved it and went ahead and worked out the rest of the design the same fashion. When I got to the guitar the plan was to stick to his classic black Strat but it blended in too much and the spot red for the body just made the whole thing come together.
The sketch was very loose so most of the detail came in the painting, especially all of the jacket.
