Accordion Guy #3


I hate to say it, but the only reason I made this picture is that I wanted to experiment with a grainy wash background. I must admit I'm really liking the layering affect. Someone (who?) whose blog I've looked at recently said something about her backgrounds being fortuitous, and the composition being deliberate. I guess this is all pretty sketchy (and by all means I should actually DRAW the whole thing first before going nuts on the ink, or you'll end up with two parts of an accordion that don't really fit together.)

  6. The background technique came out really nicely. I really like how his hair flows with the background lines--very musical and breezy.

  7. Love the movement in his hair. It's as if the music is washing over him. Really lovely!
