Hendrix is one of my favorite portrait subjects. Here’s another take on the man with the guitar.
This was one of three pieces I worked on this afternoon.
Created during a class work day.
Process work for a project I assigned for my Concept Design / Advanced Illustration class. I had to go through several unsuccessful drafts during the sketch / planning phase before moving forward with an illustration I felt happy with.

I’m teaching a course on exploring concept design. This is an example of the first project I am assigning for my students. The first example shows simple volumetric structures with shading and a light source. The second example shows a more complex arrangement of volumetric shapes. Shapes can be overlapped, tapered, extruded, and intersected with one another. Understanding these fundamental examples is key to tackling more complex work.
