Dave Grohl sketch





A quick sketch i did yesterday and to decided to work up a little more.

edit: finished, kind of. i rarely put out art that i'm not 100% satisfied with. This is one of those rare exceptions, there are some redeeming qualities, but overall it's not a very good caricature of Dave Grohl.

you'll definitely see another one of these soon

Edit: added some self-indulgent sketches, i think i've satisfied my desire to caricature Dave grohl quite completely now.

Tenzin said...

I am not sure if I would recognize him, have I not seen that music video. Non the less this is very good one, lighting and energy is awesome.

Oh! Nice, I like it

Looks pretty good to me Will - I think we all have a built in super self critical eye - there are times when we should ignore it !

Hey Will, thanks for the comment!! Glad you liked them :D

Not to bring the ball back, but... what an explosion of energy! It's so good I wouldn't even bother finishing it... captures your inspirational moment very well that adding details would take it away!

saludo

wow, what a response! Thanks so much everyone!

Junior lopes, douce, thanks for the nice words guys!

Tenzin-that is my issue with it, that it's not completely recognizable immediately.

ATH- Thanks man!

Tel- ha, yeah, you may be right. however, i'm still going to try this one again. thanks

She-thing- your welcome! and thanks, i did try to keep it as true to the original idea as possible, if i had messed with it to try to improve the likeness, it would have lost something more important.
